Fortify key talent retention and protect the organization while meeting the individual needs of your executives with deferred compensation plans.

Does your company's executive benefits program address your needs?

Every industry faces tight competition for talent. Finding and retaining talent remains one of the top concerns among CFOs and boards of directors today. Furthermore, an organization's current benefits package — such as a qualified defined contribution plan — may not meet the needs of highly compensated employees and may also fall short of what competitors offer.

Executive benefit programs are an effective way to allay this concern and mitigate the risk to the wellbeing of the organization and profitability. Yet, executive planning and business continuity strategies can be a complex, high-stakes environment — posing challenges for key talent, boards, executives and owners.

Closing the gaps between the protection coverages and retirement income highly compensated employees require and the coverages and limits typical group benefit plans provide can make a significant difference in the company's ability to compete for the critical skills that it needs. That's where we can help.

Employers have a variety of solutions to consider

As lateral C-suite movement has increased, establishing a new, fully funded, nonqualified plan is considered an effective way to attract and retain talent. The plan can be structured to provide a tax-free retirement benefit for life or a certain number of years, and restrictions can be built in to limit early departure and/or competition. Discretionary bonuses during employment also can be built into the plan as an additional incentive to keep top performers engaged.

Personal, customized service and direct access

We believe personal service and direct access are the key to successful long-term relationships. Gallagher's licensed and professional consultants work closely with you to understand your unique situation. Our custom-designed solutions help ensure your organization's challenges are addressed in a financially sound and compliant manner. From design and implementation to ongoing servicing, you have access to a dedicated client service team.

We can manage the process from beginning to end, including policy design, underwriting, cost structure and, most importantly, in-force policy reporting and management.
