Working with Sequinox is like having a trusted friend to talk with, especially when that friend takes time to understand exactly what you want out of life and knows the ins and outs of financial planning, taxes, and retirement.


Sequinox was started by Joe Wirbick venturing out on his own because he was tired of the “me first” mentality that seemed to go with big financial planning companies. He wanted Sequinox to offer people sound advice so that they could solve their financial challenges like retiring comfortably, saving on taxes, and paying for college.

Joe also wanted clients to understand exactly what was happening with their money and therefore, focuses on being honest, open, and transparent in every conversation.

OUr Mission

Our Mission is to assist retirees and those approaching retirement by using a comprehensive financial planning approach with a focus on income and taxes using a conservative investment philosophy.

Our independent status provides us a greater ability to build a strategy with our client’s goals and objectives at the heart of all recommendations.


Today, Joe Wirbick and the Sequinox team help clients find the right financial answers in a beautiful office setting, but they never forget their roots.

Sequinox was named one of the fastest growing companies in central Pennsylvania in 2011, 2017, and 2018. Most recently, Sequinox won the 2018 Inc 500 Award and in 2011, Sequinox won the “Business of the Year” Award from Central Penn Business Journal. Year after year, the people of Lancaster vote Sequinox as "Favorite Financial Advisor."

For 20 years, Joe Wirbick has been on a mission to show his clients what “they” never tell you about reducing risk, retiring tax free, and ensuring their standard of living during retirement. His multiple-award-winning company, Sequinox, has become one of the premiere sources that retirees and High Net Worth Entrepreneurs trust to understand the, often confusing world, of retirement.

And here’s why: Sequinox measures their success by the number of their clients who, regardless of how they came to them, retires successfully and achieve their major financial goals.

Sequinox is refreshingly different. They shun confusing industry jargon and use terms that are easy to understand. As a client, you are treated like family. You are educated and enabled to make informed decisions with your assets. You always know exactly where your money is as well as the plan to protect it and make it grow. 

Sequinox focuses on three main areas:

  1. Help to reduce risk in a client's portfolio
  2. Help to minimize or eliminate taxes during retirement
  3. Help to ensure a steady income for life.

When Joe was new to the financial services industry, he was unhappy with how most advisors were working with their clients. He saw a field overrun with a “me first” mentality. Joe had a vision to build a company that always put his clients first, regardless of the circumstances. The results have been incredible. Sequinox was named one of the fastest growing companies in central Pennsylvania, and won the “Business of the Year” Award from Central Penn Business journal in the same year. 

Joe’s passion for taking the guesswork out of retirement led him to write his hit book, Everything They Never Told You About Retirement, which topped the charts as an international #1 bestseller in four countries. Organizations frequently request Joe to speak about the topics covered in his book at conventions all over the world. His charisma and relatability make him a consistently top-rated speaker, helping attendees better understand how they can achieve their dream life in retirement. 

Joe has been awarded the Central Penn Business Journal’s “Forty Under Forty” award and was named as “Entrepreneur of the Year.”  Most recently, he was named #1 Wealth Manager in Central Pennsylvania by Central Penn Business Journal. Joe is a member of the Ed Slott Elite IRA Advisor group.
