In short, we simplify your financial life and help you optimize the corporate benefits available to you as you build your wealth and work toward your financial goals.

Portfolio diversification

Better risk management

Restricted share units, incentive options and non-qualified options account for half of most executives’ annual compensation. Studies show that inefficient exercise of stock options can actually destroy a significant amount of your holdings.1

While stock diversification does not guarantee returns or protect against losses, it can help reduce portfolio volatility and the risk of returns associated with an individual holding. There’s a 41 to 50 percent chance that a portfolio consisting of a single stock will fall 25 percent or more in a given five-year period, compared with a 13 percent probability for a diversified portfolio.2

Our team can build a comprehensive and diverse wealth plan that also accounts for your taxes and stocks, all to help you achieve your financial goals.
