The Special Requirements of Corporate Executives

Successful executives are a special type of client. By definition, they are intelligent, accomplished in their particular fields and very short on time. Often they have accumulated significant wealth, although this wealth may not be immediately accessible. Tax planning is critical because these individuals are often already in the top brackets and an ill-considered move can be very expensive.

Successful executives deserve a financial advisor who “gets it” right away, without the need for explanation or education. This advisor must understand the issues surrounding restricted stock, stock options, pension plan rollovers, deferred compensation and other topics of concern. This advisor must be able to step into the conversation immediately, bring value to the table and work seamlessly with other professional consultants.

Meeting the special requirements of successful executives is an ongoing challenge because the rules keep changing. That means the advisor must be focused, flexible and creative in providing solutions. The advisor also must have immediate access to significant financial resources and any specialized expertise that may be needed.

Bottom line? Executives at the top of their game want to deal with financial advisors at the top of theirs. That’s why so many deal with Keith Davis.
