Financial planning doesn’t stop once you retire, it’s just getting started. There are very specific planning opportunities with respect to the preservation and distribution phases of retirement. Tax efficiency withdrawals, cash flow analysis, timing and methods of social security and medicare decisions and legacy planning are just a few of the major decisions that need to be made. Navigating these obstacles takes skill and expertise and failing to do so correctly could have long term adverse effects on your wealth and/or future cash flows.
Our portfolios are designed with one thing in mind – accomplishing your goals.

Your portfolio will be crafted specifically for you based on your unique set of circumstances.

The financial management of the professional athlete involves many unique and complex issues. These can range from multi-jurisdictional tax compliance and planning issues such as asset protection, wealth management and estate planning.
The series of issues changes constantly as a player progresses from draft day through the minor leagues to the major leagues and then finally post playing days. In the early years, financial planning focuses on capital preservation to protect the signing bonus as life changing money in case of injury or career changes. Later, upon sufficient major league experience, the focus can shift to asset protection, asset accumulation, charitable foundations and estate/legacy planning for post playing days.
It is crucial for the professional athlete to seek counsel with financial professionals who have significant experience in all of these issues as it relates directly to the many issues professional athletes face. The team at Core Wealth Advisors currently works with over 80 current and former professional athletes in the sports of baseball, basketball and football providing a menu of boutique services.
