The Seiler Group

Helping professional athletes financially manage their success

As a professional athlete, you have unique challenges when it comes to managing your wealth. Most people earn their money over the course of a 30- or 40-year career – yours will be much shorter. Most people earn a relatively low salary during their 20s and 30s – your income will be very large during those years, then taper off or disappear altogether. Most people work 9 to 5 during the week and have weekends off – you work seven days a week. Most people work steadily year-round – you have a highly concentrated, but relatively short work year.

You are specifically concerned about turning the earnings from a career that averages three to seven years into a financial plan designed to provide post-career income throughout your life. You probably have “what if” scenarios in the back of your mind because you are never sure if you will be derailed by an injury or your career as a professional athlete will end.

Clearly, requirements for managing your wealth are different from those of most high-income individuals. That’s why The Seiler Group’s experience working with professional athletes is particularly relevant and valuable to you.
