Our Mission

To change the culture of how athletes use their wealth so they can enjoy a lifetime of success and build a legacy.

Becoming wealthy and remaining wealthy requires different characteristics. Athletes become wealthy with their performance on the field, but they often times make the mistake of thinking their success will automatically translate to the wealth management game. Fortunes are lost every year by uninformed athletes and poor advice from unqualified advisors. AWM has successfully guided more than 100 professional athlete families through this labyrinth of proclaimed experts and complex financial decisions.
