Business Owners

Woodmont works closely with business owners in several ways to manage their liquid assets, as well as lay out a comprehensive investment plan in conjunction with any sale or transaction of the business. As well, we provide 401(k) plan administration to business owners and their employees.


CEO Investing a Bonus

The CEO of a local company received a large bonus at the completion of a major corporation transaction. With such a significant change in his financial situation, the CEO wanted to make sure his investments were well positioned to provide for he and his family. Woodmont reviewed his current asset allocation, his private stock holdings, and real estate investments to develop a complete balance sheet for the first time. Woodmont determined that his investments would be best structured by changing his allocation from a growth focus, to a capital preservation focus.

To provide for basic living expense, we developed a custom bond laddering portfolio to provide for income needs. The remainder of the client’s assets we invested in a broadly diversified portfolio with global exposure. The client now enjoys greater confidence that his near term cash flow needs are covered, and that his investments are well positioned to grow over time ahead of inflation, without taking undue risk.

Preparing for the Sale of The Company

The Owner of a company was nearing retirement age and wanted to begin to explore options regarding the sale of his company. Woodmont, as part of a team of other advisors including a trusted lawyer, accountant and investment banker, put together a comprehensive financial and investment plan for the management of the proceeds of the eventual sale.

Following the eventual completion of the sale, Woodmont manages the now-retired CEO’s assets in accordance with the plan. He is now freed to enjoy his retirement and other priority, while receiving monthly income from his investments, electronically deposited in his checking account. He meets with the Woodmont team quarterly to review the investments against the established investment plan.

Establishing a 401(k) Program

The CFO of a company wanted to establish a 401(K) retirement program to assist the company in its efforts to attract and retain high caliber talent. After reading a newspaper article about a lawsuit filed against a competitive firm by the company’s employees regarding fees in the company’s 401(k) program, the CFO was cautious in wanting to find the best program for his employees, as well as not expose his company to any additional risk.

Through his relationship with Woodmont, we were able to put together a compelling 401(K) program for his company. Utilizing best in class administrative providers, and coupled with numerous low cost investment offerings, we were able to offer the company’s employees an attractive retirement program to participate in, at a fraction of the cost of similar offerings from the financial services industry.
