Revolutionising Athlete Wealth Management with FLM and FutureProof

In the world of sports and business, financial security is absolutely crucial for long-term success. FLM, a leading wealth management firm based in London, has joined forces with FutureProof to provide top-tier financial education and planning specifically tailored for athletes and sports clubs. This article reveals the reasons behind this powerful partnership, the benefits it offers athletes, and its impact on the sports community.

FLM: A Modern Approach to Wealth Management

Founded in 1999, FLM is a dynamic wealth management firm located in central London. From mortgages to insurance, tax planning to wealth management, their energetic team is dedicated to addressing all financial needs. Their goal is to simplify and improve the lives of their clients by designing personalised, long-term financial plans. By taking a refreshingly modern approach, FLM stands out from the crowd.

FLM partners with professional sports clubs, offering financial education programs to help athletes plan for a successful life during and after sports.

Emphasising Long-Term Stability

In the world of sports, earning potential can be high at a young age, but careers can be short-lived due to age or injury. It’s vital for young athletes to know how to handle their finances, invest wisely, and have a trusted advisor who can guide them through the challenges and provide a strong support system.

The collaboration between FLM and FutureProof goes beyond immediate financial concerns. This partnership focuses on long-term financial stability and cultivates a support system that guarantees a bright future for athletes and their families.

Ed Forsyth and Tim Blake, key figures at FLM, are thrilled by the potential of this collaboration.

Tim shares, “We’re excited to partner with FutureProof and enhance our comprehensive advice and support for the professional athletes we work with. James, Tom, and the rest of the FutureProof team understand the unique challenges faced by professional athletes and recognize their value in the business world. We look forward to a long-lasting partnership and are excited to see what the future holds.”

Ed adds, “I’m excited to collaborate with FutureProof and expand the range of services we can offer our clients. The world of sports can be volatile, so it’s incredibly rewarding to work with such a passionate and knowledgeable team to navigate these challenges and achieve great outcomes for our clients.”


Comprehensive Support and Education for Athletes

Young athletes face unique and complex financial demands to make the most of their sports career.  With a mix of ever-increasing contracts, endorsements, sponsorships, investments, taxes and other expenses it can be difficult to stay on top of them all.


Tom May and James Hitchman, Co-Founders at FutureProof, emphasise the power of the partnership:  “By creating a partnership between FLM and FutureProof, athletes and sports clubs in the community have access to valuable financial advice through tailored workshops and individual consultations that will help them make more informed decisions about their money. This partnership will ultimately ensure that athletes can plan for their financial futures with confidence. By providing them with sound financial advice, we are helping create a more secure future for all involved. It is an investment that will pay off for everyone in the long run”
