About Us

Since our inception over three decades ago, we have seen individuals that need help with the creation and management of wealth fail to achieve their financial goals and objectives because they didn’t receive objective advice delivered in a consultative and client centric way.  Wealth management is not a product nor is it a transaction.  Wealth management is the integration of several financial disciplines, delivered by independent and objective consultants/advisors who collaborate to provide you appropriate solutions to achieve your desired financial outcome.  We work with like-minded individuals and institutions to design and manage comprehensive wealth management solutions.

The Boston O-Zone Summit

The Opportunity Zone program, a new incentive investment program built into the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, provides significant tax and economic benefits for investors, real estate developers and fund sponsors through “qualified opportunity funds” (QOFs) in targeted communities.  Investing through Opportunity Funds provides developers and investors with tax advantaged investment opportunities designed to spur local economic development. 

Join us March 20th at the Boston Marriott Newton for thought leadership and a lively discussion on the new Opportunity Zone regulations from a panel of professionals from an investor, tax, legal and fund sponsor prospective.  Learn about key accounting, legal, tax and transaction structuring issues.  You will also be able to network and create relationships with some local and national industry leaders in this space.

We will provide an overview of the incentive, tax benefits, definitions of key terms, technical income tax aspects, an explanation of opportunity zones, qualified opportunity funds and qualified opportunity zone property.  Learn more about risks and opportunities involved in Opportunity Zone investing, which may include:

Our Story

In this highly sophisticated and rapidly changing financial environment, it is critical that individuals and businesses protect and enhance their current financial resources while also preparing for their future security. This requires careful planning and prudent management of one's financial assets. 

Unfortunately, due to the complexity of today's financial world, the day and age of the single advisor who can provide all necessary financial services has passed. No one type of professional can now adequately handle such diverse financial needs as income taxes, investments, estate and retirement planning and risk management.

At the time of its formation, Charles River Financial Group realized this and determined that it would assemble a unique professional staff that could truly offer complete financial services to both individuals and businesses under one roof. The firm achieved that objective and its staff now includes Certified Financial Planners, accountants, Investment Advisor Representatives, Registered Securities Representatives, insurance professionals and other experienced, licensed professionals.

As a result, we offer one a diverse ranges of integrated financial services. In addition, the firm prides itself on providing prompt, personal and highly professional services. Charles River Financial Group is committed to meeting its clients financial needs now and in the future.
