- now located in Monroe, NY the successor(since 1983) to Laufer & Co. formed as an NASD Member firm in 1968, as a Partnership by (my Late father) Leonard Laufer and (my late mother) Cecile Laufer. Leonard Laufer had over 35 years experience in insurance and financinal planning and two years of Law School. Sanford had the pleasure of attending Leonard's BBA graduation from Bernard Baruch School of Business in 1956. Laufer Planning is a family run business and many of our customers have become life long friends. Since we often invest our own and our family's moneys in the programs we offer, we take extreme care in selection. By confining many investments to the strong growth and income mutual funds, we have helped many of our clients increase their net worth with a minimum of risk. After the changes in the tax law, we shifted our emphasis more firmly to either well known Mutual Funds products or programs with the principals personally known to us.
