Overview

Selling Your Business: The Transition from Entrepreneur to Investor is a handbook for entrepreneurs and corporate insiders seeking advice on personal financial planning prior to selling a business or taking it public. The book provides an easy-to-read blueprint to help leaders of public and private businesses navigate before and after an IPO or sale, so they are financially well positioned personally and can avoid costly mistakes.

Beginning with the issues a business owner should be concerned with prior to an IPO or sale, the book flows chronologically, moving step by step through these transactions and into post-transaction diversification, reinvestment, and philanthropy. To address the issue of conflict of interest and distill "pure," practical advice, investment expert Louis Crosier has combined the deep research resources of brand-name companies with the specialized advice of boutique firms. He has assembled a team of senior professionals from well-known national organizations, including PricewaterhouseCoopers, State Street Global Advisors, and Harvard University, among others, and combined them with partners of smaller firms whose independent viewpoint gives them additional latitude to write candidly about issues such as fees, performance, and hiring and firing advisors.

Filled with in-depth insight and practical advice, Selling Your Business answers complex questions that are of great importance to entrepreneurs interested in growing and preserving their personal fortunes. Topics discussed include:

  • Pre-IPO/pre-sale planning
  • The psychology of wealth
  • Managing concentrated and restricted stock
  • Selecting investment managers
  • Estate and wealth transfer planning
  • Asset allocation
  • Global investing
  • Risk management
  • Traditional fixed income and equity investing
  • Alternative investments––private equity, hedge funds, and real estate
  • Philanthropy

By definition, an entrepreneur is "someone who organizes a business venture and assumes the risk for it." However, when it comes to the money made from these ventures–money used to support your family and your lifestyle–you shouldn’t risk anything. Selling Your Business will help you preserve and grow your newfound wealth, by becoming better acquainted with the investment industry and surrounding yourself with a great team of advisors.
