SaVion Harris, Financial Advisor at Intercontinental Wealth Advisors, shares his story and explains how and why he is dedicated to helping athletes and their families manage their money, protect their assets, and achieve their financial goals.
Hello, my name is SaVion Harris, and I am a Wealth Manager and Financial Advisor here at Intercontinental Wealth Advisors, where I help families and professional athletes manage and protect their wealth. I’m blessed to be a part of such an amazing team, where I’m surrounded with such an intelligent and veteran group of financial professionals, and I could not be happier. I pride myself in serving others and helping them reach their financial and life goals.
I am a former Division 1 student athlete, where I played football at The University of Texas at San Antonio, so I know what it is like to try and balance sports with the rest of your life. Football taught me how to work hard, manage my time, pay attention to detail, and embrace things that are sometimes uncomfortable. I understand the grind, the work ethic, and the time commitment it takes to be a dedicated athlete. Understanding this, I know that investing and properly managing your money can sometimes be left on the back-burner, and therefore it is essential that you find a financial professional to help you manage your financial life as soon as possible. When you invest with Intercontinental, we take a comprehensive approach to your financial life, take things off your plate while also teaching you every step of the way, and make sure your money works for you. As a high earner, one should look at investing in assets as opposed to liabilities, and I tell my clients all the time that their money is going to work a lot harder for itself than you will ever work for it.
At Intercontinental, we provide a comprehensive service that is tailored to each individual client, as well as an asset allocation that meets your financial and life goals. Whether you need income, preservation of capital, or simply growth, we will help you invest in assets that provide exactly what you are looking for. As a Financial Advisor working with high-net-worth individuals, including many professional athletes, I highly advise finding someone you trust to help grow and maintain your wealth, and I’d love to fill that role for you.
My ultimate goal is to help young athletes manage their money smarter from the start and to provide financial advice from a perspective that matches their own. You often hear horror stories about athletes burning through their money, not investing properly for the long run, being taken advantage of, and even worse, and I want to change the narrative and be there to help make sure my clients are protected and reaching their goals, now and in the long term.
