Equity Monetization


Affluent clients with significant holdings in a publicly-listed equity position are often faced with a difficult scenario. These large investments limit their liquidity and prevent optimal portfolio diversification. Often clients are unable to diversify without off-loading their investment and incurring large capital gains tax liabilities.

The Equity Monetization Course will teach you how to mitigate these risks. You’ll develop the expertise required to prospect and advise high-net-worth clients on how best to monetize large holdings on a tax-deferred basis, and use the proceeds to diversify their portfolios. You’ll use interactive exercises to learn who equity monetization is right for, and how to propose and implement one of three monetization structures. The result is knowledge that will help you protect your book of business through enhanced service offerings and deeper client relationships.
