Caterpillar Inc.

  • In-depth knowledge of Caterpillar compensation and benefit programs, including non-qualified deferred compensation plans, pensions, EIP-1, 401(k) and Roth 401(k), equity compensation/ target ownership.
  • Comprehensive approach to financial planning with regular retirement planning model updates to test and help validate assumptions.
  • While we are based in Caterpillar’s backyard in downtown Peoria, IL, we have the technology and flexibility that allow us to add value to our Cat clients who live here and across the country.

  • Student loan refinancing and debt repayment.
  • Comprehensive financial planning with regular reviews to keep you on track for retirement and keep your investments in line with both your values and risk appetite across your career, all while attempting to minimize tax exposure.*
