Strategies for Concentrated Equity Positions

Whether developing an exit strategy for a highly concentrated single stock position, producing additional income or even hedging all or a part of your position, an experienced professional can help.

Through our relationship with LPL we have been able to bring together a powerful blend of institutional experts and strategies that enable our clients to make the most of their concentrated equity positions.

In mapping out a comprehensive course of action you most consider every detail to pursue your goals. To minimize risk you may want to consider diversifying a single equity position or using alternative strategies which aim to protect your position.

Stock Option Planning

If your compensation package includes stock options, you face a complex array of choices in order to optimize their value and minimize the tax consequences. We understand the unique role options play in an investment portfolio and have the expertise to give them the attention they deserve. We work with you and your tax professionals to create and execute a plan to create greater wealth, taking into consideration:

  • Diversification strategies
  • NQSO and ISO stock holds and sales
  • Year-end tax planning
  • Disqualifying dispositions
  • Alternative minimum tax and long-term capital gains
  • 83(b) elections
  • Risk analysis
  • Exchange Funds

All investing involves risk including loss of principal. No strategy assures success or protects against loss. There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.
