“When The World Came Crashing Down — With Dave Buckwald”
One of Dave Buckwald’s clients was fired from his job. That firing saved the client’s life and probably saved Buckwald’s life as well.
In 2001, one of Buckwald’s biggest sources of clients was Cantor Fitzgerald, an investment firm whose headquarters was in the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York. Cantor Fitzgerald lost 658 people — two-thirds of its New York workforce — when terrorists flew an airplane into the tower on Sept. 11, 2001.
Buckwald lost 51 clients that day — 30 of them were life insurance clients, while the others had only disability insurance through him.
