Executive Benefits

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 funding non-qualified plans, supplemental employee retirement plans, split dollar plans, and more.

Stock Option Plans

These plans are contracts between a company and its employees that give employees the right to buy a specific number of the company's shares at a fixed price within a certain period of time. Many companies use employee stock options plans to compensate, retain, and attract employees.

Financial Decisions

A business owner is presented with the opportunity to wear several hats, and on a daily basis they face financial choices that are paramount to success.  Initially, business owners must be comfortable in the role of marketer, human resource team leader, operations manager and fiscal policy maker. We are a resource during early stage start up, assisting with funding decisions and funding source strategies. As a business matures, decisions relative to cash flow, management and asset acquisitions are of the highest of priority, and we offer access to professionals in the accounting, legal documents and financial institution disciplines to frame expert insight.

Succession Planning

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.

Key Person Insurance

Key person life insurance offers a death benefit that helps 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 assist with recruiting and developing a replacement for the employee.

Funding 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 utilizes life insurance to help ensure that the arrangement is properly funded so that there will be money when the event is triggered.

Funding Deferred Compensation

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.
