Plan Financing

Current financial reporting rules require companies to report the liability of future benefit payments directly on balance sheets. Acting as a client advocate/broker, we help manage the costs of programs and provide assistance with several key financing steps.

  • Search the market for appropriate products
  • Evaluate the financial impact of various products
  • Negotiate institutional pricing
  • Ensure compliance with the COLI Best Practices Act of 2005

We believe that a one-size-fits-all approach to financing plan liabilities actually fits no one. Before discussing alternatives, we take a thorough assessment of your company's financial situation, including:

  • Current liabilities
  • Current and future tax situation
  • Alternative minimum tax (AMT) issues
  • Cash flow constraints
  • Profit and loss (P&L) projections and the impact of any benefit plans on these estimates
  • Potential impact of various financing tools on earnings per share (EPS) estimates

Only after gaining a full understanding of all the relevant issues do we begin analyzing alternative financial vehicles to determine which would best meet your company's needs.
