Elite Business & Financial Education

Our role as your intermediary means we are here to commercially protect you to build a financially maximised and fulfilling career which brings big trophies, wealth and legacy. However, as a reflection of our values and care to our clients, it is also important that we build up our players entrepreneurial skills so that they can make shrewd commercial decisions off-the-field.

Many former professionals have tripped up in the past because they invested money in complex schemes they did not fully understand. Oftentimes, these decisions would have been easily avoided with the right guiding voices around the player. It is vitally important that our players are well informed with regard to their financial position. Through educational support, we help players to understand the practical realities of buying and selling assets such as residential property, their employment rights as a footballing professional and the foundations of the corporate business structures that make up the football hierarchy.

We provide often transformational budgeting and money education support and resources to equip players with the tools they need to control their finances, including on tax; national insurance; wage slips; savings; pensions; benefits, personal budgeting, borrowing, career-related insurances and other financial protections. Our elite knowledge of corporate business prepares players for potential eventualities concerning their investments and will help to provide stability in their off-the-pitch endeavours; giving players and their families peace of mind.

World Class Personal & Career Mentorship

When a player enters the professional game it can be very daunting. As well as focusing on the game to secure your future and achieve your playing career aspirations, you must also understand how the club operates, establish relationships and absorb an abundance of new information.

Football has enduring institutions which have longstanding organisational structures. Within that, there is a social and political landscape which contains a decision-making power base which must be understood and navigated if you are to make the most of your career. We impart our commercial wisdom based on life experience, rich commercial experience and expertise in human psychology to help you navigate the football hierarchy. 

We also provide support with the mental rigour and decision-making required to excel in the game on and off the field. The psychological demands of football are endless; from the constant pressure to succeed, the need for intense self discipline and the emotional consequences of setbacks. Mental toughness and resilience is central to an athlete’s wellbeing and physical performance; it is imperative that our clients understand and tackle these demands with support, strategies and strength. overcome signs of declining emotional well-being, build resilience and propel relationships with our players. Talking about mental fortitude and maturity is an evolving and vulnerable process so we ensure that all our athletes are able to discuss and reflect upon their mental challenges throughout their career in complete confidence. We help all our clients to set continuous personal and performance related goals to ensure they feel consistently motivated, happy and attack their career combatively with meaning and purpose.

Second Career Planning & Development

High-performance athletes often face challenges to combine their sporting career with education or work, which can have implications for their wellbeing and psychosocial development. Young, high-level athletes who train and compete throughout the world face multiple competing demands on their time, with many missing out on educational opportunities that could help them prepare for their transition to a career after they retire from sport. A common complaint from footballers is that they are conceptualised in their sporting and non-sporting development as only a footballer, rather than experiencing institutions viewing the athlete holistically, that is, as a ‘whole person’ with multiple identities and interests.

Your prestigious footballing career is precious and it needs to be protected by only those who truly have got your best interests at heart. We personally integrate with our players careers to form an unshakeable and deeply trusting relationship, thinking over a 10, 20 and 30 year period to ensure the player has a trajectory far beyond his short playing career. We will cultivate a lifelong special bond of honour and trust with you to nurture your playing career into a footballing legacy and beyond. Working together, our leading, inspiring, and commercially outstanding intermediaries will help you to transcend your limitations and achieve the incredible and attainable lifelong dreams during and after your career held by you and your family.
