ESOP Economics to speak at Las Vegas Annual Conference & Trade Show

Judith Kornfeld, founder and CEO of ESOP Economics, and Tina DiCroce and Ashleigh Newlin, Vice Presidents at ESOP Economics, will be speaking at the ESOP Association’s annual conference and tradeshow which will be held from November 12 – 14, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV.

Judy will be presenting a session titled, “Repurchase Obligation: I Have the Study, Now What Do I Do With It?” which will discuss the importance of understanding a study—its usefulness and its limitations—in order to manage the sustainability of your ESOP.

Tina will be moderating a panel on “Managing Repurchase Obligation through ESOP Plan Design,” which will examine ways to be proactive in reviewing and designing plan provisions and contribution/distribution policies, and how understanding the impact of these decisions on future repurchase obligations will better equip you to manage your obligations over the long-term.

Ashleigh will be moderating a panel on the “Segregation of Terminated Participant Accounts,” which will cover the reasons for and mechanics of account segregation – the conversion of terminated participants’ accounts from employer stock to other investments.
