Eric M. Gerhard, AIF©

My experience in the practice of equity compensation is unmatched. I have helped many equity compensation employees, primarily in the pharmaceutical world, with questions about company sponsored stock options plans and how to build a diversified portfolio. I understand the proper ways around a vesting schedule to help employees earn the most money, all while continuing employment.

The list of what I offer equity compensated employees is robust:

  • Maximize the value and manage the risk of equity compensations
  • Build a diversified client investment portfolio
  • Screen out unintended overlap to stock options
  • Apply tax mitigation strategies on stock option sales
  • Manage and maintain a concentrated company stock position for employees

My approach is a focused approach on managing your wealth, but I also understand the need to take care of your family. I tout a holistic approach to your planning for equity compensation, but also promote a positive work-life balance to enjoy your financial gains.

Managing your wealth is figuring out how and when to:

  • Sell down some of your shares in a tax-efficient manner.
  • Build a diversified portfolio appropriate for your risk tolerance and your financial goals.

If you have questions about your tax consequences or the concentration risk of your overall allocation, I have years of experience to mine for your financial success.
