Trusted wealth management for hockey professionals.

Hockey professionals navigate a unique financial landscape, and the right advisors are crucial for plotting the right strategy. Players and professionals have complex wealth management considerations, exacerbated by a relatively short career span with high earnings that must carry you through to traditional retirement years. And of course, there are planning and taxation issues caused by living and working in multiple jurisdictions.

As a hockey professional, how do you create a game plan? Who do you include on your team of advisors? And how do you avoid conflicting advice? These questions are exactly why we created the Hockey Family Office.

What is the Hockey Family Office?

A family office is a wealth management firm that caters to affluent individuals and families; and the IP Hockey Family Office works specifically with hockey professionals. We manage your investments, taxation planning, and revenue streams; but we also know there’s more to true wealth than just numbers. That’s why our panel of advisors includes expertise in wellness, career transition, estate planning, and philanthropy.

Our goal is to help hockey professionals like yourself attain wealth in all the ways you choose to define it. Working with you through a discovery process, we’ll help you define what wealth means to you, and together we’ll create a Pro Gameplan.

IP 360 Pro: Wellnes and career transition, discovery, risk management, tax strategies, investment management, estate planning and philanthropy


A core element of the Hockey Family Office service is the IP 360 PRO process that uncovers your own unique circumstances, needs, goals and aspirations. 

The IP 360º PRO process is a step-by-step method to provide a personal wealth management bench mark for where you are now and where you want to go in the future.  The end result of the IP 360º PRO method is the PRO GAMEPLAN, a customized wealth management plan specific to you and your family.

An in-depth discussion about what is important to you, both financially and beyond, in order to fully develop your PRO GAMEPLAN: a holistic wealth management plan that serves as a roadmap to achieve your most important goals. We identify your personal goals and map a course to achieve them, including your career transition from pro sports.

Identifying and managing your risks such as disability, litigation, asset protection, and personal information is crucial. We work to ensure a hockey professional’s risk management is consistent with jurisdictions, circumstances, and needs.

We work with your professional tax advisors to make sure tax opportunities are maximized, including deductions, asset location, splitting income, etc. We ensure that your tax matters take into account the multiple tax filing obligations, various tax jurisdictions, and rules applicable to a professional athlete.

Investments play a key role in a hockey professional’s goals for lifelong wealth.  We practice portfolio management that focuses capital preservation with prudent growth and income generation.

We work with your tax professionals to mitigate cross-border estate tax risks based on residency and citizenship. It’s crucial to identify potential problems that may create financial hardship for loved ones so that you can develop a legacy that will serve future generations. We can also work with you to ensure your philanthropic goals are met in a way that best benefits the charities you support.

There’s a key factor to lifelong wealth: wellness and mental health. Your wellbeing is an investment that will pay off for decades. We offer advice throughout your career and beyond. Career transition discussions can be challenging, but talking with a trusted advisor during your career will set a course for your vision for life after hockey.

Planning ahead for life after hockey can be a daunting prospect. At IP Hockey Family Office, we help players feel in control of their decisions, their timing, and their future.
