Professional athletes come into a lot of money at an early age. Whether you need help managing it, planning for your future, or investing it, our team is ready to go. While we do not manage any client’s finances, we do provide third-party oversight of the selection of your financial team, the creation of your financial advising structure, and periodic review of your financial team’s performance. Our team partners with you to alleviate typical concerns about your financial team, so that you can focus on your own professional performance.
Right after I became an NBA Draft Lottery Pick as the 7th overall pick by the Chicago Bulls in 2018, Vanguard immediately started making connections for me in Chicago and providing me with professional oversight of my financial advising selection process. As I was doing my first press conference with the Bulls, Joby and Anthony were already meeting with Rachael Mangoubi, the Chair of the Duke Chicago alumni group and they began strategizing which Duke alums would be the best to add to my personal contacts. As a result, I have already begun to cultivate amazing relationships with people who I believe will be “with me” long after my basketball career ends.
Also, Vanguard providing me with an expert to help me vet potential financial advisors really took a lot of pressure off me and my family. It allowed me to be very patient and deliberate and helped me feel much more empowered than I would have been without it.
