Generational Wealth Advisors Announces Strategic Relationship with Hargrove

By Generational Wealth Advisors

Hargrove

Generational Wealth Advisors is pleased to announce a new strategic relationship with the Hargrove Firm, Estate and Trust Attorneys (Hargrove).

Working in conjunction with Hargrove, GWA clients will receive detailed tax analysis and recommendations related to the potential sale of their businesses and its impact on their personal finances. Hargrove has an extensive network of attorneys across the United States and provides convenient access as well as state-specific expertise for GWA clients.

"As wealth management and preservation specialists, the most challenging part of working with entrepreneurs is trying to serve their family's interests after the sale, which limits our ability to optimize after-tax results,” said Bryce Gray, Esq., CPA, and Chief Operating Officer of GWA.

“Significant tax, generational transfers and charitable synergies can be achieved when proper plans are drawn up prior to the sale. Hargrove will enable us to offer this analysis before a deal closes, providing significant benefits to GWA clients.”

Areas addressed through this tax analysis include state and federal income tax consequences for a sale, the use of tax reduction vehicles such as an asset protected trust and the role of a charitable trust prior to a sale.

The Hargrove alliance will help Generational clients in their pre-deal closing decision making by providing the ability to analyze multiple offers and help determine the most tax-efficient option. 

“Too often entrepreneurs and business owners find themselves either doing a deal or turning down a deal after a tremendous amount of time and effort, only to find out too late in the process what the tax consequences look like,” said Jamie Hargrove, AEP, CPA, Founder of Hargrove.

“Our goal in offering the tax analysis is for GWA clients to understand the tax consequences sooner rather than later and make sure the deal being put together is the most tax-efficient.”

“We are excited to be able to offer this value-added service for our clients, particularly given the Hargrove alignment with Generational's core values and culture,” stated Heath Flock, COO with GG and Senior Executive VP, Alternative Investments with GWA.

Dear Chris and Andre, I just wanted to say thanks for all your help. Even though this process was not an easy one, it was comforting to know that I had a capable team standing beside me.

I need to say an immense thank you to Don Ho for his stellar work ethic, attention to detail, and tireless effort. Also thank you to the whole crew at GE! Without you, Don could not do such a phenomenal job. We were shooting for closing and funding before the end of 2020, due to the uncertainty of the political landscape and taxes. I am happy to report we closed last week and will be funding tomorrow.
