Equity Compensation Management

Corporations in the Biotech and Technology fields often distribute equity compensation to their employees.  Creating a plan and receiving guidance from Clearview Financial can help you make the correct decisions to maximize the value of your equity compensation and prevent you from making costly mistakes.

We use technology that alerts you when it is the best time to exercise your options.  This technology uses algorithms that measure the current value as well as the potential future value remaining in your stock options and uses these values to give us a metric of the potential risk and reward of your options.


Mark Young also uses his knowledge as a CPA to help you make the most tax-efficient guidance when it comes to maximizing the value of your equity compensation.
