Avanti Wealth Management are proud to announce the launch of its dedicated Sports, Media and Entertainment division following the appointment of Anthony Parker who will lead this new team.
Anthony has had over 8 years’ experience working with some of the most successful individuals in sport and entertainment, developing businesses to support the particular demands of high profile clients.
For some time Anthony has been concerned about the particular challenges that are presented to professional sports people, in particular footballers. With football analysts and media sources quoting that '40% of professional footballers are being declared bankrupt within 5 years of retirement’, and this leading to unacceptably high rates of divorce and other problems, Anthony feels that this is too big an issue to keep sweeping under the carpet and is determined to help educate young players in how to avoid becoming another statistic.
Avanti Wealth Management, formed in 2006 by its Managing Director Kevin Isaac, has been providing bespoke financial planning advice to its enviable list of clients who include owners of a number of multi-national companies and directors of a number of high profile companies.
'Our main priority is to help our clients make sure they never run out of money. Beyond that we then provide our clients with clear, easy to understand advice that means their money is well managed and that they are free to live the lives that they choose'.
It is this approach which led the ex CEO of BBC Ventures and MD of Prudential Retail to quote 'Kevin is a breath of fresh air. I have struggled over many years to find an adviser that could work up a clear retirement strategy and path to implement it. I was Managing Director of 6,000 financial advisers so the bar is set high with me. Kevin's offering and team are very impressive.'
Avanti's new Sports, Media and Entertainment team, led by Anthony, are now focussed on helping their clients understand how they can avoid the pitfalls that so many of their ex-colleagues have fallen into.
'Our mission is to provide simple to understand financial education to players and clubs that will enable them to be confident that life after football will be as rewarding as their time playing. After all, if we can enable players to concentrate on what they do best, then it's got to benefit all of us who love football'
