We’ll work with you to develop a tailored plan with financial solutions designed to fit the unique needs of your business, and your life, with advanced strategies to:

Executive Benefits Planning

Planning for executives and key employees

As a business owner, it’s essential to reward your key employees and executives. The right benefits can make a big difference in attracting key executives who will contribute to your company's growth and profitability, and incentivize them to stay for the long run.

Our team will help you design and implement cost-efficient executive benefit packages that can provide additional compensation to select employees which can include:

  • A supplemental executive retirement plan that allows you to pay additional income to yourself or key employees in the future, typically in retirement
  • An executive deferred compensation plan that allows you or your key employees to forgo receipt of a portion of current income until later, typically in retirement
  • Bonus plans that provide you or your key employees with additional income that can be used to purchase insurance, annuities, or investment products

Each of these flexible plans has a variety of tax benefits and tax efficiencies that we can design around the planning goals of your business and participants in non-qualified executive benefit plans. They can also be structured to only benefit certain key executives or in varying degrees for different classes of key executives.

Employee Benefits Planning
