Pro Sport announced as an Official Partner of the PFA

Pro Sport Wealth Management has today announced it is to team up with the PFA; one of the most important organisations in world sport, in a bid to ensure professional footballers continue living the premier lifestyle long into their retirement.

Pro Sport Wealth Management is the specialist sporting division of Group IFA who have offices in the North West, Leeds and Southampton, advising clients on a national and international scale, specialising in high net worth wealth management, SSAS and SIPP advice, advice in employee benefits and professional sports advice, managing over £650 million of clients assets. By entering into an official partnership with the PFA Pro Sport Wealth Management aim to help current and former players manage their money in the best way possible.

The Professional Football Association is the oldest professional sports union in the world and has a unique place in advising and protecting national and international footballer’s interests and rights, and partner with only a small, very select prestigious group of companies in the UK.

Now, Pro Sport Wealth Management will be a crucial part of that team and available to offer personally tailored financial advice to current and former footballers associated with the PFA.

Gareth Griffiths co-founder of Pro Sport Wealth Management who is a previous delegate and member of the PFA Management committee and a current trustee, is delighted with the new partnership.

“We are absolutely thrilled with today’s announcement and have been working for some time towards this goal,” he said.

“The PFA has been a great help to me personally and put me through my degree and post graduate qualifications. They have also helped our latest recruit Paul Mullin through his qualifications to achieve Chartered status which as we understand makes him the first ex- footballer to become a Chartered Financial Planner. With the team’s sporting backgrounds and professional training, we are uniquely placed to advise PFA members on how best to protect and grow their assets.”

“We are very much looking forward to working alongside the PFA and see this as a great step forward for Pro Sport Wealth Management LLP and Group IFA. We would like to thank the PFA Chief Executive Gordon Taylor OBE and the rest of his staff. We already have a great working relationship and look forward to strengthening this further through our partnership.”

Gordon Taylor OBE said, “The PFA are very pleased to be associated with Pro Sport Wealth Management in the provision of pension and financial advice to our members, and their first hand experience of the football and financial world sits very well with the strategy of our business partnerships.”
