PREPARE FOR A LIQUIDITY EVENT

A liquidity event is very uncommon—often a once in a lifetime success achieved after years of hard work and dedication. While a liquidity event provides the shareholder with the potential to accumulate substantial wealth, it can also produce new tax and legal obstacles foreign to even seasoned business owners.
Many entrepreneurs and business owners focus solely on running their businesses and positioning their companies for a transaction, but they often find themselves underprepared for the personal planning needs that result from a the successful sale of their business.
At the Sarian Group, our experience indicates that the time to position yourself to maximize your personal outcome is prior to a liquidity event. Investing a small amount of time in advance planning can help minimize or mitigate key challenges and give you access to a broader range of opportunities.
Our knowledgeable, experienced financial advisory team helps entrepreneurs make the right personal planning decisions before and after a liquidity event to support more successful outcomes.

RISK MANAGEMENT

For most entrepreneurs, the majority of their net worth is tied up in an illiquid asset: the company they are growing. As a result, there is a greater need before a transaction for traditional life insurance and long-term disability income protection insurance as tools to provide for the executives’ family at their demise or inability to work.
