As a professional sports person your earnings form a different pattern to most people. You generally have significant income early on in your life, which then drops (sometimes substantially) once you retire from sport and commence a second career.
At Forte Financial, we specialise in dealing with people with similar circumstances to you. Our aim is to allow your finances to have the best possible chance of success, leaving you more time to focus on your sporting career. We are on hand to navigate you through the different investment options available, ensuring you get the best solutions for your personal circumstances. We will also drive you forward to meet your plans and goals and help you steer the course throughout your life.
Often there will be twists and turns along the way, but we provide guidance, support and any reassurance you may need to ensure you achieve the outcome you desire.
A Key Part of Your Team
We can work alongside your existing agent, accountant, solicitor and tax adviser to ensure that you receive a complete service tailored around your unique circumstances and needs.
'Normal’ Earning Progression
As a professional sportsperson, you are in an unusual earning position. Most people tend to see their earnings start low, rise over the course of their working lifetime such that they can only really afford to properly implement wealth creation and management once they are in their late 30’s or early 40’s. Being in a position to start that process earlier means far better opportunities for wealth creation and financial security later in life.
Our role is to work with you to establish and develop a viable long term wealth creation and management strategy to enable to you to reap the financial rewards for your sporting prowess and to provide you with security for when you move into your second career and beyond.
It is our role as wealth managers to make sure your contract is protected in case of a career-threatening injury. In certain cases, we have protected clients’ sports earnings until age 65.
The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.
