The Unmatched Value Working with Harbor West Wealth Management;

Clarify Vision & Future

It takes a certain perspective to see the big picture. It is our task to assist you to see those possibilities you may not recognize on your own. It’s important for young athletes to sit down and think about what they imagine their lives will look like after they retire from sports. Do they have a next career in mind? Or will they save enough to step away from the game all together? With younger and younger athletes entering the Major and Minor Leagues, some athletes will "retire" from their professional baseball career before they hit age 30!. If they live into their eighties, that's fifty-plus years of life left to fund.

Balance Professional Career & Life

The gift of being a professional athlete is they have the ability to acquire extraordinary wealth at such a young age in their career. However, this is also time to realize your career is much shorter than the rest of the workforce. Athletes, being so competitive, have to put a lot of time and hard work into their careers. Most do not have the time to manage their day to day finances. The Harbor West Team assists the player with their personal transactions as well as works to help them prepare for a lifetime of success and wealth.

Create Financial Independence

Comfortable financial independence throughout their retirement years is the single most common objective our clients seek. Whether you are twenty years or two years away from retiring —or already in retirement — we can help. Most of our clients require tax-saving strategies that must be incorporated each year. There are often times in one's financial life that a significant tax event occurs necessitating careful examination. These include taxation in multiple states, a sale of highly appreciated assets, a pension, a retirement payout decision, a charitable giving opportunity or a host of other situations. We work with you and other Trusted Advisors to assure you are receiving the best tax treatment possible.

Help & Protect Family

Risk management is a vital element of any financial plan. There are events and occurrences in life that we simply cannot predict. However, we can help to guard ourselves against financial devastation in the face of these unfortunate changes with different types of insurance tools. For instance, Life Insurance can provide many benefits. It can provide security for the family in the player's absence. It can be utilized for income during retirement as well as help cover long term care medical coverage.
