Maximize Your ESOP


Built on a Time-Tested Approach           

In addition to actively participating in Garney’s employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), and possibly saving outside of your plan, you still may not have the confidence that you will be able to enjoy the lifestyle you envision in retirement. 

Investment Management Time Tested Approach

A Commerce Trust advisor who understands the specifics of the Garney ESOP and benefits can help answer questions such as:

  • Can I retire early?
  • How much income do I need in retirement?
  • How will I pay for healthcare in retirement?
  • What do I need to know about Social Security and Medicare?
  • Can I continue to support an elderly or special needs family member?
  • What tax consequences should I consider?
  • Are my benefits portable?

The Commerce Trust team of over 100 practiced, credentialed investment professionals collaborate to act as your investment office.

* Incorporating alternative investment, such as derivatives, hedge funds, private equity, REITs, and commodities, into a portfolio presents the opportunity for significant losses including in some cases, losses which exceed the principal amount invested. Also, some alternative investments have experienced periods of extreme volatility and in general, are not suitable for all investors. Before you invest in alternative investments, you should consider your overall financial situation, how much money you have to invest, your need for liquidity, and your tolerance for risk.
