Westfield Financial Advisor Jay Boyle Finds Joy in Helping Others

Jay Boyle

WESTFIELD, NJ — Financial Representative Jay Boyle loves to meet with clients in Westfield, whether it’s over a cup of coffee at a local diner or even in the comfort of their own homes. Chances are, you’ve already met him. That’s because, although his office is in Livingston, his home is here, where it has been for most of his life—Boyle grew up in Westfield and raised his three children here.

Boyle serves on the board of the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce and the board of the Westfield Foundation, is an active member of St. Helen’s Church and in the past served as president of the Optimist Club and chairman of the Westfield Planning Board. He even ran for town council.

A senior associate at Acorn Financial Services, Boyle has 23 years of experience helping individuals and small businesses with life insurance, disability income insurance, long-term care insurance, retirement planning, estate planning and investments.

“It’s a great business because it’s a tremendously rewarding business. I find that the people who are really successful in this business are people who like to help people,” said Boyle. “Sitting down and having people tell me what they want to accomplish, where they want to be in 15 to 20 years … That’s the fun part—helping people get where they want to go.”

At times it can be bittersweet—he’s often one of the first people called when someone has died. When he explains that he can help them get the life insurance money owed to them within a couple of weeks, it’s often a great relief and the only good news people get during a difficult time.

Of course, Boyle doesn’t work in a vacuum. He’s one of 90 representatives of Acorn Financial Services, which has offices throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and New York. The company provides him with support in essential areas, including training and professional development, mentoring and coaching, marketing and operations.

“We have a good, successful operation,” said Boyle. “And I have a tremendous assistant—Christine Sales—who’s the best. My clients love her.”
