Wealth Planning for Executives


Maximize the value of your executive benefits with the financial opportunities you have created

Wealth planning for C-suite executives can be complex. From negotiating employment agreements, to understanding your compensation options and formulating tax-smart strategies. Our professional guidance and strategic planning can help you maximize the value of each part of your compensation plan and coordinate all your financial resources so that you are prepared for both short and long-term financial success.


Building wealth doesn't happen by accident 

It takes customized planning that encompasses your goals, resources, and employee benefit/compensation structure in order to:


                   Maximize                      Employer Plans

             Optimize                 Stock  & Options

                  Coordinate                   Deferred Compensation

  • Traditional Regular 401(k)
  • Roth 401(k)
  • "Mega - Roth" Inside 401(k)
  • Self-Directed Brokerage Accounts

  • Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)
  • Restricted Stock Awards (RSAs)
  • Incentive Stock Options (ISOs)
  • Non-Qualified Stock Options (NQSOs)
  • Private Restricted Stock
  • Employee Stock Purchase Plan
  • Cash Balance Plans
  • Deferred Compensation Plans
  • Pension Plans


All of these items have unique income, tax, and investment considerations that require experts to coordinate and manage—experts who can answer questions like:

  • How do these compensation options translate into income today and in the future?
  • When do I exercise my options and which should I allow to accumulate?
  • What is a 83(b) Election?
  • How do I assess my total compensation package?
  • How will each source of income affect my taxes?
  • Can we make a plan to withhold taxes appropriately as my executive awards vest?

Answering executive wealth planning questions like these is what advisors at Halpern Financial do each day. We help C-suite executives and industry leaders like you, understand the details of your executive benefits package and guide you on strategies to optimize your program.
