Private Banking for sports and media personalities
Barclays works with an 'A-list' of footballers, musicians, actors, models and other media personalities worldwide to help them achieve their aims and ambitions.
We understand the importance of agents and managers in the development of your career and our Private Bankers have considerable experience in working with them to achieve your long-term goals. And we can be available at a moment’s notice wherever you are.
Understanding your ambitions
There's no such thing as an average media career. Indeed, it can be a rollercoaster at times. Simply getting used to the irregular pattern of your income presents many challenges. If you are a sportsperson, the key to maximising your earnings is managing it as it grows. With a typical professional playing career lasting just ten years, you will want to make the most of your wealth while you are at the top of your game.
An elite service for a unique talent
With the potential to earn a high income, you'll find your savings could build up quickly, so it may make sense to invest as you earn. That may require a range of services, from cash management to a property portfolio. Savings and investments will inevitably play a large part in making this happen, as will your pension. If you haven't started a pension, we can help.
Keeping your career on track
You may also wish to consider opportunities such as lucrative sponsorships and careful tax planning to help keep as much of your earnings as possible. It may even be beneficial for you to set up a limited company to deal with these extra earnings. If your career takes you worldwide, we can arrange an account that will allow you access to your money wherever you are.
