The international sport industry is widely recognized as one of the fastest growing industries world-wide achieving significant financial growth even during difficult financial times. Indeed, even in countries in which the overall economy has shown signs of slowing down in its development due to ferocious market dynamics, the sport industry has managed to achieve an unaffected, steady and at times impressively fast financial growth. As a result, the global sport industry has attracted substantial wealth through private and state investors who view it as a wealth enhancement and development opportunity. This in turn has further increased the existing wealth within the industry as well as the wealth offered to the professional athletes, stressing the need and potential for appropriate and carefully planned wealth management in sport.
In this certificate we offer a broad and thorough examination of wealth management in sport, by focusing on all areas of wealth planning, wealth preservation and wealth enhancement in the industry. We also explore the wider soft power opportunities and risks associated with wealth management in sport, to offer a well-rounded view of this ever relevant and developing field.
By the end of the certificate, the participant will have a broad and detailed understanding of the principles of wealth management and how they are and can be implemented in the sport industry. The participant will also have acquired the critical reflection skills to identify and critically evaluate possible new wealth management avenues focused on both wealth preservation and enhancement within the sport sector.
