GUIDANCE SPECIFIC to energy industry executives

While we are highly capable of serving all corporate executives, we have an in-depth understanding of energy companies’ benefits programs and retirement plans – which is an added bonus when helping executives derive the most tax-efficient benefit from their well-earned perks.

One area we devote particular attention to is net unrealized appreciation. The NUA is important when distributing highly appreciated company stock from a tax-deferred employer-sponsored retirement plan, such as a 401(k). Upon the sale of company stock accumulated over a career, the NUA will be subject to the capital gains tax, which may be dramatically lower than the current income tax rate.

As part of our tax mitigation strategy, we are also well-versed in helping executives take advantage of matching company dollars for charitable donations.

We can help executives with many different executive transactions, including stock option planning, cashless stock option exercises, rule 144 executions, 10b5-1 sales plans, and hedging and monetization for concentrated equity positions. In addition, we can assist with corporate solutions such as share repurchase programs, corporate cash management, executive benefit platforms, and retirement programs.

Savvy corporate executives see the value in having a well-designed financial plan not only for addressing short-term needs today, but looking long term to their retirement and legacy.

Count on The Sheehan Wealth Management Group to serve as your trusted partner to help create your plan, manage your investments and mitigate your tax burden, while addressing key issues such as estate planning, generational wealth transfer, and your philanthropic efforts.

Please note changes in tax laws or regulations may occur at any time and could substantially impact your situation. While we are familiar with the tax provisions of the issues presented herein, as Raymond James financial advisors we are not qualified to render advice on tax or legal matters. You should discuss any tax or legal matters with the appropriate professional.


Those who keep learning will keep rising in life.
