If you don't want your business to end when you're moving on, the best thing you can do is create a solid legacy plan.

Our highly experienced team can support you in crafting the ideal legacy for your business, down to the finest of details.



You invest so much in so many different ways to build your business. If something happens, you want to ensure your family gets the full value of your business.

You also want to ensure your employees have security to move forward. By starting with a proper valuation and building a plan from that you can accomplish those goals.

Often these discussions start with “who is a key person”. This is where we come in.

We help you determine who are the people on your team you couldn’t live without. Then we evaluate what the financial impact of losing them would be to your business. Finally, we help you properly insure these individuals.


Often, the owner or one or two of those key people would have an immediate detrimental impact if they were hurt or sick and couldn’t work for a while.

Through the use of Business Overhead Protection we can ensure you have the cash flow to keep the bills paid, the lights on, and payroll flowing while you or your key people recover.

Your key people are vital to the future of your business. Every business knows their employees are important and there are a few they just couldn’t live without.

Executive benefits are creative plans that help ensure those people stay with you for the long haul and aren’t lured away by the competition. Some call them “golden handcuffs”. We call it smart planning.


High-quality benefits can make a huge difference to the retention levels of your business.

We work with you to craft a suitable employee benefits plan tailored to your business requirements, goals, and pain points.

Every good plan starts with an evaluation. We believe we need to know where you are before we can help you get where you want to be. Some businesses may need immediate help with retention through benefits, while others need to review their key employees first. We want to make sure we’re helping you move forward in confidence wherever you’re starting from.
