Services for Business Owners

Here at the Monarch Grove Wealth Strategies & Insurance Solutions, we offer a wide array of services to help business owners address their financial needs at every stage of the business life cycle. Taking into account their personal values and financial goals, we create and execute customized strategies to help entrepreneurs meet their objectives. Some of our key services are detailed below.

 

Executive Benefits

The success of most businesses is tied in to the talent, passion, and work ethics of their key executives. Executive benefit packages can help you attract, motivate, and retain high-caliber employees and keep your company healthy and stable. We can help you with funding non-qualified plans, supplemental employee retirement plans, split dollar plans, and more.

Buy-Sell Agreements

A buy-sell agreement is a legally binding agreement between co-owners of a business that governs the situation if a co-owner dies or leaves the business, whether by force or by choice. A funded cross-purchase buy-sell strategy utilizes life insurance to help ensure that the arrangement is properly funded so that there will be money if the event occurs.

Key Person Insurance

Key person life insurance offers a death benefit that helps indemnify an employer for the loss of one of its most important assets—the key person. This can help assure continuity of the business for employees, customers, and creditors, and protects against losses in sales, momentum, and credit. It can also be used to assist with recruiting and developing a replacement for the employee.

Succession Strategies

Succession strategies allow owners to retire from their business within their own time frame, while preparing for the company to be transferred to family members, key employees, an outside party, or even a charity. This must be done in a way that achieves personal financial security, maintains harmony, and achieves maximum value for the business. We can provide financial strategies for succession.

Deferred Compensation

Deferred compensation is a written agreement between an employer and an employee in which the employee chooses to have part of his or her compensation withheld by the company, invested on their behalf, and distributed to them at a predetermined point in the future. Deferred compensation can be used as a flexible way to attract and incentivize key employees. We provide funding strategies for deferred compensation.

Employee Benefits

Today’s labor market is competitive, and finding quality employees that have the experience, values, and knowledge necessary for the job can be a challenge. Then, after you’ve put your team together, you still have to figure out how to keep them motivated and happy to be there. Offering benefits that are the right fit for your business can help to reduce employee turnover, which in turn also helps your long-term stability. Even though it’s an added expense, it’s typically much less than what it takes to hire, train, and retain new employees.

We can guide you through the process of designing a custom benefits package that keeps you competitive and doesn’t drain your wallet. We’ll show you a wide variety of services and solutions to find the options that fit your needs and budget. Certain options can come at little to no cost to you, such as a voluntary payroll deduction program. No matter what your needs are or where you’re at in the process of establishing a benefits package, we're here to help.
