Increasing stability without sacrifice

I have an enormous amount of faith in my company. We make great products; we are growing at 15–20% per year; and our financial outlook is quite positive. That’s why I’m so heavily invested in my company’s stock.
I am aware that putting all my eggs in one basket—even one I watch very closely—is a risk. One bad quarter could rock my financial boat significantly, and interfere with many other aspects of my life. So, two years ago, I asked the experts at BMO Private Bank for help. I wanted to safeguard myself without sacrificing the huge upside potential that I am determined to deliver to my company’s shareholders.
It turns out that one of their specialties is managing significant stock concentrations. The wealth advisor I met with suggested that we adjust other elements of my portfolio to complement my long-term exposure to the risk inherent in having such a concentrated stock position. And a representative from their Capital Markets Group offered some fantastic suggestions on diversification and hedging tools. In no time, my confidence in BMO grew so strong that I delegated all the day-to-day decision making to my BMO Private Bank portfolio manager. It was a very good move. Her full-time attention and total familiarity with the technical aspects of my situation helped me avoid some problems that I may not have discovered on my own.
Working with BMO has dramatically improved my ability to focus on my job and relax about my financial stability. And I didn’t have to sell a single share of my company in the process. For me, that is what really counts.
