Executive & Director Benefits Consulting - Equias Alliance, LLC

Banks utilize nonqualified benefit programs to attract and reward top executives and directors. Without such programs, bank executives typically retire with a lower wage replacement ratio than desired. Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans (i.e. SERP's) and other nonqualified deferred compensation arrangements help restore such retirement shortfalls. Such programs can be tied to the bank's performance and therefore serve as a powerful motivational tool for the plan participants since increases in plan benefits depend upon the attainment of organizational and/or individual objectives.

Equias Alliance provides strategic and technical services to help identify the bank's plan objectives and can tailor the benefit plan program(s) specifically to meet those objectives. Equias Alliance will also assist the bank with quantifying benefit shortfalls, evaluating the economic and financial statement impact of the benefit program(s), assist with regulatory compliance and plan documentation, as well as recommend appropriate financing strategies. Equias Alliance will also assist in the implementation of the program(s) and can provide ongoing administrative services.
