Protecting more than just finances for professional athletes

Professional athletes have unique legal, tax, and financial needs. Uncertain and volatile cash-flow is common. We develop a financial plan for professional athletes to smooth the ups and downs of income and make sure taxes are covered and enough is being saved for the future.

Because their lives are public, maintaining privacy and shielding them from baseless lawsuits is critical. Our goal is to protect our clients’ interests, which often starts with protecting the client. We work with our legal team to create corporate structures to:

  • Preserve assets
  • Employment agreements for household help
  • Privacy policies for employees
  • Kidnap and ransom insurance for high-profile athletes
  • Security companies to protect athletes dwelling and vehicles

As your personal CFO, we provide a comprehensive financial review of what is working and what can be improved. We look for oversights – things that could wreak havoc on our professional athlete's financial lives overnight – and find individualized solutions

Why professional athletes need a financial advisor

Wealth Advisor Financial Planner for Major Athletes NFL NHL Financial Advisor

Financial Planner Robert Pagliarini speaking to NFL players about finances.

For some athletes, the first “aha” moment comes when we show them on one page (or on their smartphone) what they have and where it is. We then show them what they are making and where their money is going. Most of our professional athletes with a lot of financial moving parts come to us feeling overwhelmed and the desire for immediate clarity on the various financial, legal, and tax issues they face.

We are able to provide them with instant insight into what they have and a comprehensive strategy to preserve it and manage it through a process we created over the past two decades called 360 Wealth Management.

CFP® and Personal CFO for athletes

We work closely with our client’s team—the attorney, business manager, and accountants. Our mission is to improve our clients’ lives by providing them with the security that their assets are protected and expertly managed. If you want a comprehensive review of your finances or are looking for better strategies to grow your assets, we have developed a national reputation for providing financial planning and investment management to professional athletes globally.

Fiduciary Financial Planner Irvine

We are true fiduciaries.

This means we always put our client’s best interests first. A true fiduciary also means that we are not part-time fiduciaries. We put our client’s best interests first in all cases and at all times. Less than 8% of financial advisors are true fiduciaries. Read our fiduciary oath to see the principles we live by.

You have enough to think about right now - trusting your financial advisor shouldn't be something you have worry about! Choose a fiduciary financial advisor.
