Whether it be in the form of stock options, restricted stock or deferred compensation, we have found that our clients in the technology and start-up industry often have a large amount of their net worth tied up in the companies they work for. Typically these holdings cannot yet be realized and require more sophisticated planning and investment strategies. 

Developing a plan becomes paramount when faced with the fortune of newfound wealth and the burden of impending tax liabilities. Services that we provide to help guide you through this process are:

  • Mitigating the risk associated with concentrated stock positions through diversification
  • Reducing, affecting the timing of, and shifting either current or future income tax liabilities
  • Developing divesting strategies of concentrated stock positions
  • Navigating the IPO market
