Based in the greater Boston area, Buckley Financial specializes in the creative uses of life insurance products and solutions to preserve, protect and grow multi-generations of wealth. We are a full-service, independent life insurance brokerage and consulting firm specializing in the structuring and administration of life insurance portfolios for affluent families and businesses.

Since 1993, our core mission has been to build lifetime relationships with our clients based upon mutual trust, integrity and respect. We build these relationships through our expertise in developing comprehensive financial plans in the areas of wealth accumulation, preservation and transfer. We then tailor each plan to the unique needs of each individual client in the most tax efficient and economically sensible manner.

Our clients generally use life insurance to achieve one or more of the following:

  • To provide income replacement
  • To facilitate the funding of estate tax liabilities
  • To provide specific inheritances or charitable bequests
  • To assist business owners with succession planning and providing selective benefits
  • To accumulate investment assets in a tax-efficient manner

We are strongly committed to helping clients achieve clarity in their legacy, succession, and life insurance planning goals.

In addition, we consciously limit the number of clients we work with and zealously guard their privacy to assure the highest level of personal service.

We also work effectively with our clients’ key advisors, or, if needed, we bring a team of experts to our clients to ensure that our clients’ plans are professionally orchestrated, integrated and implemented.
