Key Person Insurance: Protecting Your Business in Case of Unexpected Loss

Every business has essential employees who drive its success. Some people are truly irreplaceable. What would you do without your Chief Financial Officer for instance? Experiencing the sudden loss of a key staffer can have dramatic repercussions on your day-to-day business operations and profitability. By helping protect your business from the unexpected death or disability of a principal employee, key person insurance can help your business to continue running smoothly.

Retirement Plans: Taking Care of Your Own Financial Security

How will you plan for your own personal security in retirement as well as the future success of your business? If you are the original owner who started the business from the ground up, you probably feel quite attached to it. You might experience reluctance about retiring and letting go of your active role in the business. But you deserve to retire at some point, too. After all, you've earned it. Our retirement planning strategies can help support your taking the plunge.

Pension Risk Transfer: A Solution to Dealing With Pension Plan Uncertainties & Volatilities

Employee pension plans can be risky, expensive and time-consuming to manage. How would you like to have extra time and money to focus more on the main activities of your business? Pension risk transfer may help you accomplish just that. We can help you consider an alternative to a traditional pension plan in which pension benefits typically paid to your pension participants are replaced with annuity payments. Doing so can help reduce investment risk and administrative time and expense for your company.
