Thirty-three current and former NFL players will take part in the third annual NFL Personal Finance Camp in Fort Lauderdale March 27-30. New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall, Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry and Detroit Lions cornerback D.J. Hayden are among the players taking part in the four-day financial education program.

The program, developed jointly by NFL Player Engagement, the University of Miami School of Business Administration and TD Ameritrade, offers participants an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the people, investments and forces in the financial world. It equips them with the knowledge and tools to help build generational wealth and maintain long-term financial security.

“Our Personal Finance Camp provides our players and their families with educational tools that can help them achieve long-term financial security,” said Arthur McAfee, Senior Vice President of NFL Player Engagement. “We are proud to host this program for the third straight year with The University of Miami and TD Ameritrade.”

Over the course of four days, participants will learn from University of Miami School of Business Administration faculty, TD Ameritrade financial professionals and former NFL All-Pro defensive end Patrick Kerney, who is now the director of business development at National Fire & Casualty Investments. Sessions will include “The Building Blocks of a Portfolio,” “Personal Finances and Investing Basics,” “Creating a Diversified Portfolio,” and “Examining Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning.” Participants also will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one financial planning assistance.

“We’re delighted to partner with NFL Player Engagement in a program that brings athletes face-to-face with some of the world’s best finance professors for advice and new perspectives on attaining long-term financial security,” said Anuj Mehrotra, dean of the University of Miami School of Business Administration. “This program complements our MBA and other executive programs designed to meet the unique educational needs of professionals from a variety of backgrounds.”

“Financial planning can be a highly emotional and personal experience because it covers the intersection of wealth and earnings with our future well-being. This can make it a difficult topic to understand, let alone discuss with advisors and family members,” said Dedra DeLilli, head of sponsorships at TD Ameritrade. “That’s why we’re proud to help present Personal Finance Camp for a third straight year. It’s an opportunity for these professionals and their families to have meaningful conversations and commit to learning in an environment where there is no such thing as a bad question.”

The NFL Personal Finance Camp is one of many career and professional development programs NFL Player Engagement offers to current and former players and their families. More than 32 players and their significant others took part in the second annual Business Academy last month at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
