Atkinson Capital is dedicated to providing today's athletes with sound investment strategies and financial management tools so that they can avoid the common pitfalls that have left too many athletes 'broke' shortly after they stop playing. This is based on the unique experience Craig gained raised the son of a professional athlete (George Atkinson) combined with a successful career in financial services.
Having seen it all, on both sides of the ball, Craig has this unique advantage with invaluable insights that makes him both a great advocate and helper of athletes. Some athletes receive and follow good financial advice - but most do not. Our mission is to change the tide in this arena and provide athletes with a fighting chance to use their high earnings over their playing years - to take care of them and their loved ones for life.
