Equity Compensation Planning

Equity-based compensation can be challenging to navigate. We work with you to evaluate your plan documents and develop a strategy that is informed by your broader investment and financial goals.

Popular equity compensation plan structures include:

  • Nonqualified stock options
  • Incentive stock options
  • Restricted stock grants or rights
  • Performance-based plans
  • Employee stock purchase plans (ESPPs)

In some cases, equity-based compensation can result in concentrated positions and lack of overall diversification. We work with you to evaluate and consider ways to reduce or minimize your exposure by using strategies such as:

  • Exchange funds
  • Options strategies
  • Downside protection funds
  • Selling programs

Our aim is to ensure that you maximize your equity rewards and minimize the effect of taxes. We also help you review your investment options within your qualified retirement plans (such as 401(k) and 403(b) plans). We can provide advice on how to utilize available investments to compliment your broader investment strategy.
