Professional Athletes

Mariner Wealth Advisors has the expertise to help professional athletes in the NFL, NBA and PGA manage their assets.  

There’s joy in making a short journey last an entire lifetime.

As a professional athlete, the money you make in the game must last long after you retire. Managing sudden wealth can be difficult. It needs to weather a complex income tax system, insure and protect your body from harm, and endure other unexpected obstacles. Unfortunately, many professional athletes are broke within five years of retirement, whether due to living exorbitant lifestyles, financially supporting family and friends, gambling, becoming a victim of fraud and financial scams, or divorce.
