Commenting on the deal, Harry Adams, the Group Co-CEO, Argentex said: “We are looking forward to working with the players that ISM represents and to provide them with independent advice and FX services to help them manage their finances effectively.
“Professional sport stars are businesses in their own right and cannot be expected to be administrators or accountants as well as be at the top of their game and this is where Argentex can offer support and expertise.”
“We understand the unique FX needs of professional sportspeople who are performing on the global stage, having worked with sports management firms for many years. The philosophy of ISM and the quality of sportspeople in their stable makes this partnership a natural fit, and we are excited to begin building a relationship.”
Through this collaboration, not only do selected sports athletes get access to financial advice, Argentex will be able to broaden its client base via the players being directed to them via ISM.
