Hi, I’m Hugo Donais. Over the past decade, I’ve worked with hundreds of business owners. My focus is in the conversion of corporate owned assets into personal after tax dollars. We accomplish this without the usual tax hemorrhage known as disposition.

This is made possible via the unique application of a time tested asset class designed to preserve capital, enhance yield and allow our clients to amplify and perpetuate their philanthropic contributions. 

This process has very little cost, if any, to the business owner.

WHO WE WORK WITH

We don’t financially discriminate. However, our typical client is a business owner with a minimum ebitda of seven figures. The enterprise’s revenue may be cyclical or fluctuate from year to year but the shareholder(s) equity is strong.

We help physicians and smaller businesses with investment ideas, key man insurance, employee benefits, and individual protection plan. 

We don’t have many clients, but we take great care of the ones we have.

WHAT WE DON’T DO

With recent progress in highly specialized software that can deliver enhanced investment options at a fraction of the cost, we no longer sell mutual funds or other antiquated expensive financial instruments that tends to underperform broad market indexes. Our philosophy is to avoid excess complexity by seeking yield through traditional value investing, real estate and by reducing cost and taxes wherever possible.

STRATEGIC ALLIANCES

By partnering with the best in the business, we are able to bring value in the following areas:

  • Private Money Management
  • Tax & Estate Planning
  • Leverage Buy-Sell agreement
  • Executive Deferred Compensation
  • Employee Benefits

  • Collateralized Insurance Agreement 
  • Business Succession Planning
