In an increasingly competitive, globalized world, a company’s survival often depends on its ability to recruit a talented management team and other employees critical to the value creation process. Just as important is retaining this talent. The valuation premium afforded to many companies by investors often boils down to one thing: a talented, capable, and motivated management team.
Through a collaborative, bottoms up approach, The Pacific Group assists companies in designing and implementing executive benefit plans that effectively reward each individual for his or her efforts towards achieving the company’s overall objective, and motivate each individual in the pursuit of greater heights of achievement.
While calculated business and financial risk is often the hallmark of successful enterprises, managing this risk on a day to day basis is of critical importance. Risks that often go unmanaged by many successful companies are those associated with the human capital of the owners and/or key “value drivers” of the business.
This is often heightened when the business is privately owned or relies overwhelmingly on the efforts of a few key individuals.The Pacific Group assists corporations to identify these risks, whose components often vary by industry and the unique characteristics of each individual organization. We model the risks with an objective to quantifying them. We subsequently design effective structures to assist in isolating and hedging them.These strategies include:
- Business Succession Planning
- Key Person Planning
- Disability Funding
With nominal tax rates that rank among the highest in the developed world, US domestic corporations find it increasingly challenging to compete in a world that is becoming more and more globally intertwined.
Managing corporate tax liabilities often frees up additional capital to be utilized in growing the business and expanding into alternative products, services or markets.Through the use of a suite of individually tailored plan designs, The Pacific Group consults with corporations, public and private companies, private equity and other private financial partnerships to design and implement effective structures to address these taxes and enable companies to retain and deploy capital more efficiently.
The Pacific Group and its associates do not provide tax, accounting or legal services. You should consult with your own tax and legal advisors regarding your particular circumstances.
