Financial Planning for Employee Stock Plans

Many corporations reward their employees with employee stock plans. Overtime, employees may find themselves holding an over concentrated stock position. It is important to have a plan in place to ensure you do not find yourself over exposed to one company.


Planning for the efficient management of the tax consequences of diversifying out of your company stock can be an important factor in retaining more of the assets you worked hard to build. It can also have significant impact on your current and future income and tax bill.


Areas of current concern may include:

  • Over concentration in one stock.
  • Tax implications of vesting.
  • Retaining more of your income after-taxes.
  • Understanding the types of stocks in your plan.
  • RSU
  • ISO
  • ESOP
  • ESPP
