Joe Cerqua founded the firm after a 24-year run at Rochester-based Clover Capital Management, Inc. that eventually became a unit of Federated Hermes, Inc. Having worked various positions in operations while earning his Chartered Financial Analyst designation, he advanced into analyst roles and later portfolio management for both stock and bond investments.  When Joe's position was relocated out of state, he and his family of five chose to remain in Rochester, NY, an area to which they have established roots and ties to the community.  With a desire to be independent and help individuals, Joe brought his extensive experience and solid reputation to a new venture and Elmwood Income Partners was born.
