I chose C, it makes sense to compare people with people, so “investors” vs “many wealthy individuals”.

D. As investors' taking care to protect their assets with insurance policies and tax planning

E. Like insurance policies and tax planning for asset protection



Error analysis
A. Like should be followed by a noun, in this case like is followed by a clause.
B. It looks like "the care by investors" is compared with the "many wealthy individuals"
C. this option is correct like is followed by a noun and "who take..." modifies investors
D. Again illogical comparison. I am not able to elaborate on this. :(
E. grammatically correct, meaning is changed. Illogical comparison. "insurance..." compared with "wealthy investors".

In the original sentence, wealthy individuals are compared with 'care' and this does not makes any sense. Out of the remaining 4 choice only C correctly compares wealthy individuals to investors and hence is the correct choice.
