    Medical & Dental Practices Are Consolidating Like Never Before

    Medical & Dental Practices Are Consolidating Like Never Before

    You may have noticed over the past few years that your local doctor has joined a larger medical group or a hospital system.  Why did that happen?  As a physician, or as an advisor to a healthcare practice, you may be considering  selling a practice as a retirement plan or way to increase reimbursements and decrease expenses.  In this episode I speak with Daniel Brunello, a Director in the Bernstein Wealth Strategies Group, to learn more about consolidation in the healthcare industry.   We discuss who the top buyers of healthcare practices are and what motivates them.   Daniel covers strategies for handling the real estate associated with a practice and the best way to prepare the business to maximize sale price.  We also give our top tip for physicians trying to save for retirement who are not considering selling their practice.

    The Biden Tax Plan Explained

    The Biden Tax Plan Explained

    The Biden administration has proposed sweeping legislation, which would create major changes to the tax code and impact current capital gains, corporate, and estate tax treatment.  I'm joined by Bernstein's Director of Wealth Strategies Research Tara Thompson Popernik to make sense of the proposed changes.  We discuss how to manage your portfolio in this environment, when the policy would go into effect, the likelihood that it passes, how business owners and investors with large unrealized gains should evaluate the impact, and strategies to keep more money in your pocket.

    Succession Planning and Preparing to Sell a Business

    The sale of a closely held business is often a defining moment for a family.   A successful transition plan encompasses not only financial consideration, but the personal, family, legacy, and gift/income/and estate tax issues that surround a deal.  To go more in-depth, I talk with two experts on the subject.  First, I'm joined by attorney Thomas Collura.  Tom is a Partner at Hodgson Russ.  Tom’s practice is focused on representing privately held companies and their owners in a wide range of corporate, tax and commercial matter.  Then, I'm joined by Andrew Jones, a Managing Director at Pipler Sandler.  Andy's practice focuses on advising private equity firms, entrepreneurs and corporate clients on mergers & acquisitions transactions.
