A Message from Morgan Rich

The Rich team is an executive benefits firm whose expert work with publically-traded companies and closely held businesses change the status quo executive compensation paradigm.  Through our planning model, we access a deep understanding of each client’s compensation schemes and how those schemes function with the mission, vision, and values of the executive or business owner.  This enables us to deliver a tailored strategic approach to align our client’s mission, vision, and values with their current compensation arrangement and potential 409(A), Section 83 and 83(b), and Section 401(A) planning opportunities.  The Rich team passionately provides planning for companies across the United States, creating transformational wealth for business owners and executives.
