After nine consecutive years of gains, the S&P 500 finally experienced a down year in 2018. The performance of the market during the year was somewhat peculiar, as stocks remained in positive territory up until December 6th. But a vicious December selloff wiped out the gains, and then some, from the first 11 months of the year.
FineMark Sports Management provides highly personalized business management services to professional athletes. We currently work with nearly 200 athletes along with a number of coaches and executives. Our primary goal is to preserve capital and ensure our clients maintain the high quality lifestyle they’ve worked hard to achieve. We accomplish this by overseeing their financial plan and offering objective advice related to banking, estate planning, asset management and insurance review. Our professionals will assist wherever and whenever needed.
Capital Preservation is critical when you don’t know how long your career will last. The primary goal of our investment strategy is to preserve what is made during an athlete’s playing years and to prevent major losses in a portfolio.
A Financial Plan should provide the foundation for your financial life in one complete picture. It’s the game plan to help you manage money and protect your assets now and in retirement. As we develop a plan together, we will also establish a cash flow analysis that allocates after-tax income to expenses, debt repayment, savings and investments.
You can help ensure the lifestyle you want in retirement by being debt-free when your professional career ends. This means while athletes are making their largest paychecks, they should also be making their largest loan payments. We structure loans for aggressive repayment, to help ensure a debt-free retirement.
FineMark encourages our clients to be a part of planning their financial future. We want you to know what’s happening with your money and we want you involved in the process. The more our clients understand what we are doing, the better we can serve them.
