Athlete Wealth Management Services

         

Some of the most challenging experiences athletes face during their careers do not occur on the field.

         

Many athletes rely on talented professionals to help them handle their various off the field needs. Those they select to be part of their personal team may greatly impact their success in life. That’s where we come in; to address the many financial challenges athletes face during and after their careers. The Robinson Private Client Group collaborates with athletes’ most trusted advisors, such as agents, tax and legal professionals, and front office administrators, so the athlete can fully concentrate on performing at the highest level.

An athlete’s career is generally unpredictable and often has a relatively short lifespan. With that in mind, our focus is on helping construct an investment and risk management program that addresses the dreams and goals that drive the athlete.

"These efforts may help create a greater level of financial stability so the future stays bright even after the stadium lights go out."

We work collaboratively to implement an extensive planning process that uncovers many of the quantitative and qualitative factors likely to impact an athlete’s life. Only after gaining a deep understanding into the issues one faces are we in a position to recommend how capital should be invested. From there we create completely customized investment strategies tailored to each unique athlete’s situation.

We understand the streaks and slumps common to professional athletes. Just as an endorsement deal can bring on a liquidity and tax event that requires careful planning and action, an injury can bring on a loss of income and possibly a diminishment of peak earning years. The grit and dedication of year-round workouts, those early mornings and late nights in the gym spent toward dreams and aspirations, are matched by the weight of responsibility we feel, for the role we play in athletes’ lives.

"Together, we’ll devise a wealth management strategy that will help account for the unique variables of a professional athlete’s life and career, while addressing the dreams and goals that drive you."
