Executive Equity Guidance Services.

Are you one of those people who finds their executive compensation challenging to manage, overwhelming and complex? Most don’t know how their plans integrate various forms of compensation, and often cash needs drive transactions instead of a well-conceived divestiture plan. Our conversation begins with an understanding of your stock-based compensation.

Initial Financial Planning Services.

SFG is a fee-only advisor who works with clients in a fiduciary relationship, similar in structure to an accountant or attorney. From the initial meeting, our relationship is based on understanding your financial situation, determining the overall well-being of your financial situation and preparing a plan in pursuit of your financial goals.
  • Stock-based compensation planning

Expatriate Executive Planning

Leadership talent is global. That’s why you, like many expatriate executives, may face multifaceted decisions regarding where you and your family will live today and in the future. Senior leaders have a unique set of immigration questions such as where to reside and the attendant income, estate, and exit tax considerations. A simple question may present a cascade of impacts for US citizens assigned abroad or expats working in the US under an L1 Visa or holding a US green card.

For the expat living and working in the US, serious attention needs to be given to whether US citizenship status makes sense…and if so, when? To optimize the variables that impact planning, our team of financial advisors will work with you and your other professional advisors who provide immigration advice, international and US income tax guidance, tax equalization specialization, exit tax counsel, and legal opinion.

Some considered decision points:

  • What is personally best for you and your family?
  • Where will you ultimately reside…should you stay, or should you go?
  • How do you build in maximum flexibility around where your children and grandchildren ultimately land?
  • How can you integrate international income tax for long-term incentive (LTI) grants?
  • What’s the best way to manage your company stock as a corporate insider?
  • How will you plan for the exit tax (or US expatriation tax)?
  • What are the impacts on US and international pension planning?
  • How can you best plan for your children’s education and what if they pursue international studies?
  • What are the estate tax planning considerations for assets held in and outside the US?
  • Will you have enough when you stop working?
  • How are your investment asset holdings best positioned to grow, given your risk tolerance?
  • How can you effectively manage cash and currency?
  • What if you accept a board position elsewhere upon leaving your current international company?

Our experienced financial advisors are ready to help guide expatriate executives towards financial peace of mind. More specifically, we bring you our specialized experience working with expats to help integrate your international status with the complexities of taxes, timing and economics of your stock-based compensation. Let’s have a conversation.

Special Needs Planning

Your success as a senior executive and your stock-based compensation provide many protections but no immunity from worry and heartache. For any family with a beloved member who has unique special needs, the challenges and worries can be daunting, difficult and unforeseen. Will your resources provide sufficient funding for your loved ones, come what may?

In support for their loved ones -- whether a child, sibling or family member – many people find peace of mind in the clarity of a financial plan.

Our financial advisors at SFG are familiar with the issues faced by parents and family members of those with special needs and can coordinate your planning with outside advisors and additional resources to provide a seamless conversation.

Some aspects to resolve:

  • How do you develop a plan for a loved one’s care when you are no longer around to care for them?
  • Should you formalize instructions for your loved one’s living situation, medical care, education, and religion through a Letter of Intent?
  • Are family resources or outside funds enough to provide lifetime support?
  • Should your NQOs, RSUs, PSUs, or other stock-based compensation be used to fund what is needed?
  • How do you leave an estate while preserving your child’s ability to qualify for medical benefits?
  • How reliable is the consolidated waiver, and does it make sense to plan around it?
  • Would setting up an ABLE account make sense?
  • Should you establish a Special Needs Trust and how should it be funded?
  • As a corporate insider, how can you plan for periodic divestitures to provide for care?
  • How would you appoint a family member to act as a trustee and personal advocate in the best interest of your loved one?

Our financial advisors will help guide you toward financial peace of mind for your loved one. More specifically, we provide our expertise coordinating the complexities of taxes, timing and economics of your stock-based compensation to provide for your family members’ long-term special needs. Let’s talk. We welcome the opportunity to listen, best understand your desires, and aid in developing a plan for their quality of life when you are no longer able to provide their care.
