Business Owners and Incorporated Professionals

We work with business owners and incorporated professionals across a range of industries to create and protect value in your business. Building wealth goes beyond running a strong balance sheet and showing profits each year. A key to enjoying the results of your hard work is to build wealth inside and outside your business.

We can guide you in creating:

  • a succession plan to help ensure you get the return on your life investment you deserve
  • a holding company, a life insurance policy, and other tools to limit your tax liability 
  • a well-diversified investment portfolio outside the business that can continue to generate income long after you have sold or moved on from your life as a business owner
  • tax minimization techniques that consider retirement planning and succession, cash flow management, estate planning, and investments.

For businesses with annual sales between $20 million and $500 million, IG Private Company Advisory provides strategic and transaction advisory services. Discover how we can help unlock your company's potential.
