Christopher Anicete began his wealth management practice at Northwestern Mutual in 2009. Chris specializes in wealth accumulation, distribution, and preservation for his clients.
Chris and his team work with current and past NFL players to maintain financial stability in the present and through retirement. He works to help manage risk, savings, and investments to help achieve their long-term goals. Chris aims for lifelong partnerships with their clients.
Safe and responsible spending habits are key for a stable financial future and these are the habits Mr. Anicete instills with their clients. The average length of an NFL career is three years, so the financial planner must stretch this nest egg to last long past their career duration.
Chris and his team strive to be a comprehensive service for all of his clients needs to deepen the relationship. This relationship is built on trust and hard work from both sides.
For SBC members actively seeking employment or opportunities in the sports industry, especially opportunities in the world of sports such as sports finance, Chris Anicete had this to say:
On building your career....
“People buy people, not products, you must set yourself apart.”
"It's not all about what you know, it is how you interact with people"
"Your biggest opportunity in college is to learn how to build and sustain relationships"
"It is all about how well you are at communicating, connecting, and keeping relationships"
“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”
On the best advice that was given to me...
"Price is only an issue in the absence of value. If a value is there, price doesn't matter and you should consider it a discount."
“The goal is to serve the community and inspire them to achieve a lifestyle that they’ve always dreamed of”
