Expand Retirement Solutions
Our mission is to provide strategies and solutions for a respectable and fair retirement for all social classes. Keeping mind that Retirement is a process & plan including business, investments, real estate, health, network, mindset & facilities.
From generation to generation
As you become more successful, you will acquire more profits, assets and wealth. The family will also enjoy a better standard of living. However, the main issue will be how to transfer that wealth from generation to generation, optimize investments, save taxes, and ensure a proper succession planning for the business while keeping its core values and culture.
Our role will be to valuate the wealth of the family, assess the next generation’s ability to run the business, manage the assets, and structure the best trust and decision making process in order to ensure a fair distribution among family members based on their profiles, skills and engagement.
Having updated balance sheets, income statements and administrative documents/tasks always processed on time is a key challenge that must be well managed among all related professionals and authorities.
From one stage to another
Businesses are born to expand. Whether you are small, medium large or very large, there's always a next step. This is why we exist. We need to assess, plan, implement, strategize and most importantly measure every part of the process...
Challenges will always be there. You must do something about it because there's always inflation, competition and continuous internal and external pressures.
Opportunities are there, it is up to us to join hands, explore those opportunities to the maximum, expand and make a difference.
From standard wealth to high net worth
Every successful person expands the business and the wealth. We help them analyse their personal balance sheet, income statement and valuate their net worth. Then we work on a tailor-made strategy to get the best out of their investments, whether in business, properties or financial solutions.
There's no strategy that fits all; that's why we must align every step with your risk profile, your goals and your priorities. Keep in mind that the strategy must be updated every single year because the world is changing very fast and must adapt your strategy accordingly.
From market share to market dominance
Growing the market share is a continuous challenge for solid companies. The next step is not only to be well positioned in the market but also to move up in the ranking and ultimately dominate the market.
Our role is to guide the business to stabilize its positioning in the market, set an ultimate growth strategy to lead the market, neutralize the competition and start expanding to new territories for hedging its local risks and optimizing its return on investments.
Sometimes companies are ready for making a global difference but they get busy in the daily operations and challenges. Don’t just think of opportunity cost, think of opportunity gains and market leadership.
From strategy to dashboard
Strategy automation is the key to measure and enhance the operation. The first step is to go digital and then automation will be the next natural move in order to collect data, analyse it and make wiser decisions.
Our role will be to document the workflow, spot the bottlenecks, provide recommendations, implement the needed ERP – Enterprise Resource Planner and customize all the needed modules to go 100% paperless.
Each decision maker will enjoy his/her own customized dashboard and business becomes more joyful and more transparent while keeping tight control; without needing to micro-manage on daily basis. Now you can drive your business like you drive your car...
From red to blue ocean
Maturing in a local market is good but what would be great is to move you to a totally different ocean.
You must move from the red ocean: more competition, less profit margins, to the blue ocean, where we can help you launch new products, penetrate new markets and differentiate yourself from the competitors.
Let’s help you assess your key strengths and implement a new strategy to help you stand out of the crown and expand to a new level.
From external training workshops to internal training academies
The more companies grow the more training they need and the more standardization is crucial to unify the flow of information and the equal opportunities among all team members.
Our role is to save companies external training costs and also avoid the conflict between different methodologies coming from the trainers’ diverse backgrounds. We structure the training manuals and booklets, produce high end videos, create testing and assignments and train internal trainers to deliver the workshops in house following standardized presentations.
The higher the employee turnover the more internal training academies are needed. The pipeline from recruitment to retention will be optimized and well measured through integrated HR modules within the customized ERP – Enterprise Resource Planner.
From large to very large business
A large company is considered lucky to have passed the grey zone. It’s big, solid, has a lot of resources but the main challenge remains in having the right system.
Our role is to make a complete business assessment to identify all the pillars for growth. Then an operational plan is needed to identify the next strategic direction for the company: diversification, assets acquisition, strategic alliances, global expansion, etc.
Headhunting people from different companies can play as a quick fix but having a unified system and culture will be the key to success. Key performance indicators must be well defined and measured and instant dashboards are golden recipes for sharp decision making.
From idea to business
Almost every person has hundreds of ideas. If only one of them gets well planned and implemented, it could be the next big thing.
Our role is to brainstorm those ideas, evaluate them and assess their readiness to be born.
The next step will be to write a solid strategy and help you implementing it. This will include all the steps needed from protecting your trademark, registering your business, getting all the expert advice regarding business, financial, legal, taxation and marketing direction.
Which idea is the best idea? The one you plan and implement with full passion! Let’s get you started!
