Puzzle's Checklist for Corporate Executives

Checklist

Stock Option and Executive Analysis

Q: Is the concentration in your company’s stock creating risk?  When should you sell and why?


A: We use StockOpter software to help you understand your executive compensation plan, optimize tax efficiency, and provide guidance on when to execute stock options.


For executives needing a 10b5-1 plan, we offer a dedicated division to manage its implementation.

 

Financial Planning

Q: Can you retire on your terms? Did you know that your expenses will INCREASE in retirement?

A: Most advisors take the wrong approach by asking how much you want to spend a month.  Instead, the Puzzle Process gets in the weeds to uncover every financial goal that is important. 


We will report back to you annually on your Probability of Retirement Success using Monte Carlo modeling and stress testing.  That is the CONFIDENCE you need to retire with less stress.


The projections or other information generated by Monte Carlo Analysis tools regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results, and are not guarantees of future results. Results may vary with each use and over time.



Protecting Your Wealth

Q: Why would anyone need insurance in retirement? 

A: Life Insurance as an investment can reduce estate tax obligations thus passing on more money to your beneficiaries instead of the government.


Meanwhile, Long-Term Care Insurance can be used as a supplement to get leveraged tax-free benefits for better facilities or nursing care. Not everyone wants a roommate!

Estate Planning Strategies and Taxes

Q: Are you frustrated by playing messenger between your CPA, your Estate Attorney, and your Advisor? 

A: The name of the game here is COLLABORATION.


Your current Experts are likely operating in silos creating more stress for you AND reducing efficiencies. That won’t happen with Puzzle.  We will work with your current partners OR lead an interview search to help you find a new team of experts you can feel confident in. You have better things to do in life!

Cash Flow Management

Q: When I’m retired and no longer receiving an income, how do I access my money?

A: Our operations team is simply the best.  Getting access to your money will be both easy and secure. 


Once we help figure out your budget, we will transfer money from our high-paying money markets to your bank monthly to cover your bills.  With this approach, you will understand whether your budget is on track for success. That’s a POWERFUL little trick.



Wealth Management

Q: What creates more FOMO – running out of money or missing out on maximum market appreciation? 

A: You’ve made yourself wealthy. Let US keep it that way


With a proper risk assessment by a Puzzle advisor, we will help you understand your investment risk tolerance and customize tailored portfolios just for you.


Puzzle solutions include individual equities, low-cost ETFs, fixed income, and alternative investments.
