Forty-three members of the NFL family, including 28 current and former players, will take part in the second annual NFL Personal Finance Camp in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on April 4-7. Green Bay Packers linebacker Julius Peppers, Chicago Bears safety Antrel Rolle and Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch are among the players taking part in the four-day financial education program. Fifteen players will be attending with their spouses or significant others, nearly doubling the total number of participants from the inaugural event last spring.

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

“Programs like the Personal Finance Camp provide our players and their families with the resources, skills and support to achieve success in all aspects of their lives. Financial stability is critical to that success,” said Charles Way, NFL vice president of Player Engagement. “The Personal Finance Camp offers players the education and means to better manage their money and start to build generational wealth to secure their financial futures.”

Over the four days, participants will receive instruction from University of Miami School of Business Administration faculty and TD Ameritrade financial professionals, as well as former NFL All-Pro defensive end Patrick Kerney, now the director of business development at National Fire & Casualty Investments. Program sessions will include “Building Generational Wealth,” “Funding an Uncertain Lifespan,” “Planning and Building Your Portfolio,” and “Examining Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning.” Throughout the week, participants also will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one financial planning assistance.

“We’ve designed the program specifically for past and current players to help them achieve long-term financial security,” said David Lecón, director of executive education at the University of Miami School of Business Administration. “It is wonderful to see so many NFL players making such crucial investment in their future.”

“We all face an evolving definition of retirement – one where the end of a career does not necessarily mean the end of employment,” said Denise Karkos, chief marketing officer, TD Ameritrade. “This is especially true for many NFL players and their families, making a financial plan no longer a luxury, but a necessity. That’s why we are proud to help present Personal Finance Camp for a second straight year. Through education we can help participants establish good financial habits, increase understanding and break down the barriers that stand between them and their financial goals.”

This is one of several career and professional development programs NFL Player Engagement offers to current and former players and their families. More than 40 players and their significant others took part in the inaugural Business Academy last month at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
