Timothy J Hanley, CLU®, CLTC®

Financial Advisor


Before I can speak intelligently about the services that might be appropriate for you and your family, I need to get to know you. And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know me.

Professional History


Tim entered the financial services industry almost 30 years ago after graduating from the University of New Hampshire and Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics (formerly known as the Whittemore School of Business and Economics). He was drafted in 1984 by the Los Angeles Kings in the seventh round of the NHL entry draft and played two years of professional hockey prior to starting his business career. Over the past two decades, Tim is considered an expert at analyzing the needs of individuals and businesses to develop customized strategic solutions to meet his client’s goals. One of his main focal points is designing cash rich, accumulation oriented and tax efficient plans to supplement company sponsored retirement plans. He works largely with corporate executives and individuals in the financial sectors. Over the past 10 years, Tim’s insurance and investment practice has evolved into a full financial planning firm with many strategic alliances. In recent years, he formed an alliance with Tom Lenci of Lenci Associates who specializes in high net worth estate planning and executive compensation programs with US companies such as Avalon Bay, Coca Cola, GE Merrill Lynch, Siemens, RBS, Nestle Waters Webster Financial and others. Tim has access to a Network of Specialists that bring an unparalleled level of depth and experience to his clients. Long term security does not happen by chance. Tim and his team help to identify your goals and dreams, design, and implement a financial plan to help achieve them.
