Business Succession White Paper

As you prepare to leave your business and transition it to your successor, take the following steps:

  • Risk Management: Share with your successor and key employees the business plans you have in place to prepare for the unexpected.
  • Employee Benefits: Have the new owner continue the benefit plans that are in place to better ensure a smooth transition for employees, since human capital is the most important asset of your business.
  • Business Succession: Execute your strategy and encourage the new owner to develop his or her own succession plan.
  • Personal Planning: Enjoy the rewards of your hard work with an income stream that will support the retirement lifestyle you envision for yourself and your family.
