Richard P. Beaulieu, Jr., CLU®, ChFC®, AIF®

Managing Partner


“I enjoy making a difference in people’s lives, whether it’s improving a business owner’s 401(k), or helping an individual achieve their objectives for retirement.”

Rick Beaulieu started his career in the Mutual Funds division of John Hancock after graduating from the University of Rhode Island with a B.S. in Finance and Insurance. After five years in Boston, he joined Independence Financial Partners, a second generation family business, and was named Managing Partner in 2002. For over a 100 years, the firm has been helping famlies and businesses achieve financial success.


Rick began his financial advisory practice working with CPAs and as a board member of the Construction Financial Managers Association of Rhode Island, helping business owners and their employees achieve their financial goals using a holistic discovery process and tailored solutions. Later, he expanded into the 401(k) market and recently earned his Accredited Investment Fiduciary® designation. In recognition of service to his clients, Rick is a qualifying member of Court of the Table and a Life Member of the Million Dollar Round Table. He is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, the Society of Financial Service Professionals and through The American College, he earned his designations as a Certified Life Underwriter and a Chartered Financial Consultant. 

Outside of the office, Rick is well known in his community for supporting various charities and his dedication to the East Greenwich Soccer Association as a volunteer and coach for many years.

  • Member of MDRT (Million Dollar Round Table),  a premier industry association of financial professionals worldwide

* The Achieving Client Excellence Award (ACE) was granted by former broker-dealer Signator Investors, Inc. and the John Hancock family of companies. The ACE award is granted to the top 250 advisors each year based on total weighted premium from the sale of both proprietary and non-proprietary preservation and wealth products. No other factors are considered. Third-party rankings and recognitions are no guarantee of future investment success and do not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance or results. These ratings should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor by any client nor are they representative of any one client’s evaluation.

MDRT disclosure:

*Qualifying membership in the MDRT is based on minimum commission and gross business generated within a year and is not based upon performance or returns experienced by any client, or opinions of the advisor's clients or former clients. Each MDRT status designation is granted for one year only. All members must apply every year to continue their affiliation with the Million Dollar Round Table.



The Hall of Fame was an elite group of financial representatives of former broker-dealer Signator Investors, Inc. and the John Hancock family of companies.  To be included in the HOF, inductees need to qualify for the ACE award 15 times.
