Wealth manager Brooks Macdonald has inked a three-year agreement with the Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA) to become its financial wellbeing partner.
Under the partnership, the wealth management firm will support both current and retired professional cricketers with their personal finances.
This will see Brooks Macdonald offer bespoke services to all PCA members including financial advice, education and guidance.
Stewart Sanderson, Brooks Macdonald senior private client director, said: “We are pleased to be supporting an organisation and a sport that share our core values of ambition, collaboration and respect. The work undertaken by the PCA, through this partnership, will allow us to use our expertise to educate and advise professional cricketers of the past, present and future on their financial wellbeing.”
Importance of financial planning
PCA commercial operations lead Richard Morris said: “We are delighted to bring Brooks Macdonald on board as the PCA’s financial wellbeing partner in the first agreement of its kind, which is an exciting step forward for both the PCA and our members.
“Effective financial planning is a hugely important part of being a professional cricketer, so this agreement just goes to show how a commercial partnership with the PCA can be of benefit to both businesses and players.
“That this partnership will initially run for three years illustrates Brooks Macdonald’s long-term commitment to supporting PCA members in this area, and we look forward to working with their excellent team well into the future.”
