Matson Financial Services, Inc. founder and President Jim Matson brings more than 30 years of insurance expertise to his practice. After graduating from Queens University with a degree in Civil Engineering, Jim began working with a large national corporation. After more than a decade of progress up the corporate ladder, he decided on a change from that environment and set out to establish his own business, Matson Financial Services. As a knowledgeable advisor with a keen interest in risk analysis and contract language, Jim created an independent insurance brokerage firm that is client centered and caters to his clients’ individual needs. Today, Matson Financial continues to provide exceptional advice and service with Jim at the helm.
As a Certified Financial Planner, Chartered Life Underwriter, Chartered Financial Consultant, and Certified Health Insurance Specialist, Jim has the credentials to back up his considerable experience and has become a recognized authority in living benefits in the insurance arena.
