Sports Financial Advisors Association

Jonathan was one of the founding members and is the president of the Sports Financial Advisors Association (SFAA). Established in 2004, it is an organization for the education and promotion of financial advisors dedicated to working with professionals in the sports arena. As the only non-profit organization of its kind, the SFAA serves an ever-growing population of active and retired professional athletes as well as their families.

The organization was created to promote a network of licensed financial professionals that will bring its years of collective experience to educate professional athletes, coaches, players associations, and athletic organizations. Its members understand that many challenges can change the status of these professionals almost immediately, such as short careers, financial mismanagement, and fraudulent investments.

The SFAA seeks to attract members who are licensed specialists in their respective financial fields and are dedicated to addressing the unique needs of sports professionals. The organization believes that each person involved in the life of a professional athlete is uniquely accountable for helping them develop and practice financial literacy as a life skill.

The Purpose of the SFAA

The SFAA’s vision is to reverse the trend of athletes making fatal financial decisions by cultivating financial literacy as a life skill for student-athletes, active or retired professionals, as well as their families. In order to actualize this, the SFAA operates as an interconnected group of councils, with each having a specific set of objectives and goals designed to engage members in their vision from year to year.
