Sports, Media & Entertainment

Power your financial potential

The value of investments can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.

We see, hear and understand your needs

Whether you’re in Sports, Media or Entertainment, you will understand that entertaining the nation isn’t just a day job – it’s a way of life.

The demands placed on your time as a high-profile, successful individual in the public eye means your finances are very possibly going to take a back seat. We understand that it’s important to enjoy your wealth today, but to also ensure your future is worry-free from a financial point of view, whatever your goals.

The good news is that here at Barclays, we are very happy to relieve you of the pressure to make sure your money matters are taken care of to ensure a secure future for you and your family – whether that’s being more tax-efficient, maximising investment opportunities or putting money aside for retirement.

As your career progresses, we’ll be there for you to tweak, adjust and make new plans as and when we need to.

Our Proposal

At Barclays, we are well-positioned to help you in achieving your goals and we will seek to do so in the right way – via thoughtful guidance, tailored to your specific needs.

Whether you’re a Premier League football player, chart-topping musician or a media agency owner and beyond, we have the sector expertise.

Our knowledge and experience of the industry you work in means that you can feel safe in our hands, helping to bring all your financial planning under one roof. We also have a strong trusted external network, which means that we can save you time in having just one point of contact whatever you need to talk about to make the most of your money.

Together we will explore your personal philosophy regarding money, and help you find the right course in achieving your personal financial ambitions.

We can help with the financial ‘must-haves’ from banking, setting up pensions and investments, protection insurance, estate and tax planning and buying property for buy-to-let or a holiday home.

Retirement planning isn’t a run-of-the-mill matter when you work in sports, media or entertainment because your career span might be different compared with other industries.

In the video below, Barclays Wealth Manager, Sophie Barrington, discusses the unique requirements of her clients in the Sports, Media and Entertainment world.

Essentially, as a Wealth Manager, my role is to support my clients in creating an investment plan that suits their needs.

Every day is different, which is one of the reasons why I love the job because no two clients are the same.

So my specialism that I work with within the team is sport, media and entertainment clients.

So my client book tends to be a lot younger than probably the average wealth client.

So I get a lot of clients coming to me asking a lot around the retirement piece, especially where someone's retirement might be at 35 years old rather than the traditional 55 at the moment.

That's quite a big topic of conversation.

How can you make that money last, what could be 80 plus years for some clients?

So I suppose the reason that I love my job and I do what I do is because I love talking to people.

And the kind of crux of the role of being a Wealth Manager, it's relationship management.

You want to really understand people and what positions they’re in, in order to really give them the best advice possible.

The value of investments can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.
