Risk Management is an essential part of any wealth planning process. Our team of Insurance Specialists identifies risks that could tremendously impair your financial situation. While it's critical to focus on what may go right with your situation, it's also crucial to consider how you may be negatively impacted without protections in place. Cost-effectively transferring risk to an insurance company's deeper pockets may be prudent to minimize the financial damage of a catastrophic, unanticipated event. Some of the ways we utilize insurance in the wealth planning process include:
- Life Insurance commonly used for income replacement, business succession funding and estate planning, as the payouts are generally tax-free if structured properly. There are many different types of life insurance available today and our team of professionals will help you chose the right policy or combination to protect what matters most to you.
- Disability Insurance Protects your income in the event of your inability to work due to a disability which may occur in your working years. Your ability to earn income is one of your biggest assets for years to come and should be protected.
- Long-Term Care Insurance Used to protect your assets in case you cannot perform some of the Activities of Daily Living. The benefit can be paid for respite care, adult day care, in-home care, assisted living as well as nursing home care. These costs are very high today and will only increase, therefore passing this risk to an insurance company is usually a sound strategy.
Have you considered your legacy? For many people, family and charity are high on the list of those who should benefit from their work life. However, the governments also want a piece of the action. We are here to help you understand how your assets will be distributed under your current estate plan and existing tax law. Our team will work with you and your existing financial professionals and attorneys to formalize your wishes to minimize the administrative burden potentially and to maximize the value distributed to the people and causes you care about.
We offer multiple employee benefits that can become available for you company employees. Some of the more common benefits of interest to your employees include:
- Group Health insurance
- Group Disability insurance
- Group Life, Dental, Vision and Life Insurance
- 401K Plans
For your highly compensated or key employees, we also offer various executive benefits options.
To motivate your executives to work hard and stay at your company, consider paying the premiums on a specially designed employee-owned life insurance policy. The premium amount becomes a compensation bonus to the executive. With these plans, the premium amount is tax-deductible to you, the employer. We structure these plans so the policy's cash value accumulation fund and death benefit can provide:
- Survivor Income
- Retirement Income
- Estate Liquidity
- Educational Funding
Want to sweeten the retention pot? You can add a restrictive endorsement that limits the executive’s access to the policy cash values until a certain date.
The Wisdom of a Well-Designed Plan

Better yet, it’s a way to attract – and keep – the talent your company’s success depends on.
Your plan should reflect the expectations of your diverse workforce. At the same time, it has to take into account all of the complex rules, regulations and laws put out by ERISA and the DOL. All while building in the demographics, data and unique culture of your business. The work can be overwhelming. That’s why we offer companies like yours game-changing solutions, processes and systems, backed by highly personalized consulting support.
