Forget about the disco lights and get Ashley Laatz in your corner today!
So you’ve landed that lucrative contract. You are now part of a prestigious rugby union and you are a step closer to realising your dream of playing for the Springboks, but do you have a financial game plan that will ensure that you have enough to fall back on when you decide to hang up your boots?
This is where Ashley Laatz of Consult by Momentum comes into play. As a multiple award winning financial advisor who is trusted and respected by several South African sporting greats, he understands that very few rugby players are as committed to their financial health as they are to their gym routine.
Ashley takes great pride in tailoring financial game plans for sport stars (and businesses) and as Sharks centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg explains, the real value lies in his commitment to ensure that every player on his books takes accountability for their investments and spending habits.
“Having followed his advice my family and I no longer have any worries about my life after rugby,” Rohan said.
“My only regret is that I didn’t have someone like Ashley to guide me at the start of my career. As is the case with many young players I was also lured into buying expensive cars and living above my means, without a real plan.”
Finding a formidable financial advisor was therefore an absolute game changer for the 29-year-old Sharks man who has donned the green and gold.
“I now know exactly what my financial future holds and just like it is important for a coach to get the buy-in from the players when he presents his game plan, I knew it was going to be equally important for me to buy into the plan Ashley had created for me.”
With the best technical support staff in the country at his disposal and the understanding that short term sacrifices are necessary for long term success, Rohan is geared for a financially free future when he decides to call it a day.
In the meantime, he will focus his attention on the upcoming United Rugby Championship with the knowledge that he only has to worry about what happens between the four lines – the rest is up to his money man Ashley Laatz who always has his back.
