Did You Know

Recruiting and retaining top talent is the number one concern of CEO’s in the US. 401(k), employee health coverage, and bonuses are simply not enough to have an advantage over your competition. If your benefit plan is offering 60-100% more in return than your competitors, recruiting and retaining just became a lot easier. NIW's strategies offer additional financing. Giving you the ability to outspend your competitors on benefits for your core team. This strategy also complies with no increases to your budget.

These plans were originally designed for our own use. Now they are available to you too.

Kai-Zen® For Partner Buy Out

Partner buyouts should be easy. Which is why many business owners don't consider any planning that would be regarded as necessary. Very often we hear about situations where partners want to be bought out, but are skeptical of the practical implementations this requires. Such questions arise as, "Can I trust that the business will be generating revenue after my departure?"
Kai-Zen® is a way to fund a plan that is independent of the company. Our plans provide, independently acquired funds to the business, once the partner has left. The remaining partners don't have to worry about shackling the business with costs that are not producing revenue.
Is it right for you?
  • Highly compensated individuals below age 65.
  • Earning $100,000+ per year.
  • Standard or better health.

Kai-Zen® For Succession Plans

In the dynamic of a family owned business, asset and equity distribtion can be complicated. Our plan is an agreed allotment of 5 payments that allows those working in the business to buy out family members, who are not working in the corporation. These 5 payments can equate to a value representing the share of the business. Allowing the original owners to leave the company to the second generation, without subjecting either party to business valuation risk. In order to get a fair and predictable income, Kai-Zen® capitalizes on business growth internally, by those family members contributing. Kai-Zen® solves this problem at approximately half the statistical cost of an out-of-pocket solution.
Is it right for you?
  • Highly compensated individuals below age 65.
  • Earning $200,000+ per year.
  • Standard or better health.

Kai-Zen® For Future Liabilities

Is it right for you?
  • Highly compensated individuals below age 65.
  • Earning $200,000+ per year.
  • Standard or better health.
