Entertainment, Music & Sports

Whether you are behind the scenes or in front of the camera, every artist needs a business advisor who is focused on the big picture while managing the details.

Being an entertainer or athlete can get chaotic at times and often takes a village of professionals in the background to make everything run seamlessly in the eyes of the public. Due to professional demands, it's easy to lose sight of where and how your finances, investments and other lifestyle management duties are maintained. This lack of oversight is often the result of not having independent, qualified advisors at your side.

The financial and operational management of an artist, company or group have become more complex as they engage in ventures across different platforms of media that involve many moving parts which require proper oversight. Our ability to be valuable in this capacity has allowed us to uphold a strong reputation as trusted advisors for professionals engaged in all facets of entertainment, sports and media.
