The National Football League Players Association’s (NFLPA) institutional program offers financial advice services to current and former NFL players. We will be among a few select advisory firms registered by the NFLPA to work with its network of nearly 5,000 athletes.
The NFLPA created the Financial Advisor Program in 2002 to help clients access services including financial planning, investing, tax and estate planning. Over the past year, the organization has updated its policies to vet financial institutions for the program, rather than individual advisors. Institutional participants in the program are selected based on their reputation and range of service offerings that meet the specific needs of the players. Each institution designates and monitors participating advisors who must meet specific criteria and follow a code of conduct.
