Delaney Wallace | Registered Representative

Office: 914-460-1203 | Email:

Delaney Wallace is a Registered Representative for TJP Wealth Solutions. His mission is to make significant and positive impacts on the lives of others. Delaney specializes in helping small business owners and young families build their “financial home.” Delaney believes that the planning process is more than just numbers. He says, “Goals do not equal numbers, and numbers do not equal goals.” For this reason, he starts by getting to know each person he works with as an individual and focuses on understanding their goals in life, as well as financially. He then creates a custom blueprint to help them achieve those goals. Delaney believes in building an everlasting relationship with his clientele, and always makes himself personally available.

Delaney Wallace is a Moorestown, NJ native, and graduated from Pace University’s Pleasantville campus in 3 ½ years. He excelled not only in the classroom, but also on the football field, and was later able to have the opportunity to compete in the NFL Regional Combine. He believes the discipline of being a full-time study, with a full-time job, while also competing in high-level athletics set him head and shoulders above many others in his field. “Those who work with me will feel my passion, and know that I will go farther for them than anyone else would. This is not just my profession, it is my purpose,” he says.
