Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)

Uncovering the true value—and future implications—of your client's ESOP.

An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is an incentive-based, defined contribution retirement plan that allows employees to own company stock. ESOPs differ from other employee benefit plans, as they are required by law to invest in the securities of the sponsoring employer and also provide the ability to borrow money. Our experienced in-house team will help your clients with the planning, execution and administration of the entire plan.

From planning, feasibility studies, cost implications and funding to employee education and administration, we’re here to help. Let us support your ability to offer and service these specialized, complex retirement plans to open up a new stream of business—and revenue—from new and existing clients.

  • Full-service plan administration and support
  • Complete in-house consulting and actuarial services
  • Streamlined process working with CPAs, lawyers and management
  • Structuring of complex plans for key individuals or groupings
  • Compliance testing and plan audit assistance
