As a valued executive of your company, the rewards you receive for your uncommon vision and leadership can be significant. Along with rewards, however, come unique challenges and risks – highly concentrated stock positions, restricted stock grants and warrants, and bonuses/incentive compensation (appreciation rights, performance stock units). While maximizing these strategies may be appealing at first blush, they may require careful evaluation to avoid maintaining too high of a correlation to the endeavors and culture of your company. Since your earnings are closely related to your company’s success, it is prudent to separate your personal future from your employer’s. As a trusted, unbiased partner, SOUND Wealth Management Group assists in analyzing your sensitivity to a single business entity by removing the emotion and proximity that might skew decisions.
Whether you are an emerging or seasoned executive, SOUND Wealth Management Group will evaluate your benefits and work with you to preemptively model a variety of plans to test the potential consequences of "what if" situations and the probabilities of attaining your financial goals against varying income levels, modified compensation plans, future expenditures, and retirement date – regularly evaluating the results.
SOUND Wealth Management Group can help with many complex executive transactions, including employee stock ownership plans, cashless stock option exercises, rule 144, 145 and 701 executions, pension buyouts, 10b5-1 sales plans, and hedging and monetization for concentrated equity positions.
