Fulcrum Partners. Fulcrum Partners Media Releases

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL — (March 26, 2020) Fulcrum Partners, one of the nation’s largest executive benefits advisories, announces publication of “Rabbi Trust: An Important Element of a Nonqualified Executive Benefit Plan during Times of Financial Stress.” The whitepaper, which is available to view online or download as a PDF, provides an overview of nonqualified plan benefit security issues that are important to review during financial or economic turmoil, specifically looking at rabbi trusts as the primary benefit security tools available to nonqualified plan sponsors.

Steve Broadbent, a Managing Director and Partner, who heads the firm’s Atlanta office said, “The consultants at Fulcrum Partners, through decades of experience, have observed that the security of a nonqualified executive benefits plan is something that often only receives attention when a new plan is implemented, upon a prospective change in control, or in times of financial crisis. With today’s economic uncertainties, plan sponsors will want to review their rabbi trust agreements to ensure they will meet their post-change of control requirements and, at the same time, provide adequate protection to the plan participants. This Fulcrum Partners whitepaper looks at key issues the plan sponsor should consider.”

“Rabbi Trust: An Important Element of a Nonqualified Executive Benefit Plan during Times of Financial Stress,” is available for download at Deferred Compensation News.

With more than $7 billion in assets under management, Fulcrum Partners is one of America’s leading executive benefits consultancies.
