Wealth Management Retirement Planning
We work with our clients to design and implement a variety of accumulation and retirement income plans, offering insurance products, investment programs ranging from separately managed portfolios of stocks and bonds to mutual funds, and access to third-party wealth management programs. We offer a consistent process to help ensure management of investment assets according to your goals, risk tolerances and time horizon. We then monitor your plan on a continual basis, and adjust and evolve as your needs change.
Funding for Buy-Sell Agreements
A buy–sell agreement is a legally binding agreement between co-owners of a business that governs the situation if a co-owner dies or leaves the business, whether by force or by choice. A funded cross-purchase buy-sell plan can utilize life insurance to ensure that the arrangement is properly funded so that there will be money when a co-owner passes away.
Key Person Insurance
Key person life insurance offers a death benefit that indemnifies an employer for the loss of one of its most important assets - the key person. This can help assure continuity of the business for employees, customers and creditors, and protects against losses in sales, momentum, and credit. It can also be used to recruit and develop a replacement for the deceased employee.
Succession planning allows owners to leave their business on their own timeframe while preparing their company to be transferred to family members, key employees, an outside party, or even a charity. This must be done in a way that achieves personal financial security, maintains harmony, and achieves maximum value for the business.
Deferred compensation is a written agreement between an employer and an employee where the employee chooses to have part of his or her compensation withheld by the company, invested on their behalf, and distributed back to them at a pre-determined point in the future. Deferred compensation can be used as a flexible way to attract and incentivize key employees.
The success of most businesses is tied into the talent, passion and work ethics of their key executives. Executive benefit packages can help you attract, motivate, and retain high-caliber employees and keep your company healthy and stable. We can help you with non-qualified plans, supplemental employee retirement plans, split dollar arrangement, and more.
