Many clients have accumulated their wealth as a direct result of their business endeavors. When this is the case, the "control person" frequently has large holdings of restricted and/or control stock. Transactions involving restricted or control securities can become quite complex.
Most people prefer their portfolios be well diversified and want the ability to make changes to their portfolio along the way. Yet many portfolios contain one or more concentrated positions and investors find themselves either prohibited from selling off the concentrated position — because they are restricted or control stocks — or clients are reluctant to do so because of significant appreciation and the capital gains cost or other personal reasons.
The likelihood of these concentrated positions occurring increases in proportion to the wealth of the individual. Many wealthy clients have excessive risk in their portfolios because they are unaware that strategies exist to help them manage the risk of concentrated positions.
That’s where we come in. We understand the challenges that come along, and we strive to anticipate and address these situations as they occur. We want to keep you on track toward a meaningful and purpose-driven financial future.
