Business Ownership & Succession

Entrepreneurs and Business Owners

Clearview Wealth Partners strives to help clients maintain success in business while protecting themselves against the risks associated with having a large percentage of their assets tied up in the entity that is their life’s work.

As holistic planners, we review all aspects of your financial situation, taking into account tax consequences, legal documents, and asset distributions in order to develop a financial plan closely integrated with your business plan.

To help provide clear strategies for entrepreneurs and business owners, we:

  • Specialize in helping owners of private and closely-held businesses make the tough decisions surrounding succession.
  • Create interim plans to facilitate immediate decision-making, while providing enough flexibility and control to change the factors and players as needed over time.
  • Help you build the proper team of advisors to most effectively implement your succession plan. The proper advisory team (from legal, tax, and financial disciplines) is critical to a successful transition.
  • Assist business owners in evaluating and maintaining employee benefit programs such as medical, life, long-term disability, dental, long-term care insurances, and qualified retirement plans.
  • Help to evaluate and implement programs to attract and retain key talent in your organization.

The planners at Clearview Wealth Partners have helped many clients navigate the succession process to completion.
