Our team works with you to understand your tolerance for risk and appetite for return. We will identify investment options based on your needs.
Many of our clients work in the fields of sport, entertainment, and the performing arts. They have a talent to perform, whether it is in the sports arena, on stage, or on screen. They are unique talents and have the right to be treated as such. We know how hard it is to reach the top and the effort required to stay there. You may have spent a lifetime preparing: training, practicing, rehearsing – and performing. In many ways, however, this was only the beginning. Competing on the world stage affords you little time to think about your finances. Your earnings may be significant but could be volatile. You may be a world beater but your career may be unpredictable. We understand this.

We will help you understand what will happen over time, and help you prepare and plan for the uncertainties that lie ahead.

A CAREER DRIVEN BY HIGH PERFORMANCE
Outstanding ability, dedication and hard work put you where you are today. You know what it takes to reach the top. And you settle for nothing less. But your commitment to excellence leaves little time to manage your finances or plan for your future, let alone funding your old age. In sport and in entertainment, every career is unique. Yet the very nature of your career can mean that it is short-lived. Many athletes retire at an age when most people are just starting to lay the foundation for their future. And the ups and downs of the entertainment business are notorious.
FUTURE PERFORMANCE DRIVEN BY YOUR CAREER
You are unique and so are your requirements and expectations. You demand an individual approach, one that is flexible and takes account of your needs. Flexibility is vital.

Whatever choices you make, we know that you come first.
