CrossleyShear Wealth Management’s Evan Shear Recognized as an NFL Players Association Registered Financial Advisor

Recognition follows recent launch of the practice’s CSsports division

HEATHROW/MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA, March 13, 2019 – CrossleyShear Wealth Management (CrossleyShear), a team of financial planning and wealth management advisors, announced today that founding partner of the practice and branch manager for Raymond James, Evan Shear, has been formally recognized by the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) as a Registered Player Financial Advisor.

The NFLPA Financial Advisors Registration Program, the first of its kind in professional sports, provides NFL players access to a diverse group of qualified financial advisors. It was created by the league’s players association to provide players with an additional layer of protection - not just from poor financial advice, but also from outright fraud. The principal intent of the Program is to benefit the players themselves by providing them access to a qualified group of financial advisors that have met certain eligibility criteria.

“On behalf of everyone at CrossleyShear and CSsports, we’re very excited about the opportunity to partner with the NFLPA membership,” stated Evan Shear, Co-Founder and Branch Manager of CrossleyShear Wealth Management, and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. “NFL players have more financial challenges than ever.  Our CSsports team is dedicated to simplifying the complex and providing players with tailored financial planning and wealth management solutions.  Most importantly, we are driven to provide our clients with the confidence that both their day-to-day planning and financial legacy is well-protected so they can focus on their performance and career.”

Co-founded by Evan Shear and Dale Crossley, CrossleyShear has offices located in Heathrow and Merritt Island, Florida. The advisors manage more than $479 million in client assets and offer a wide variety of services, including retirement planning, investment and asset management, trust and estate planning, education planning and executive wealth management. Earlier this year, the company announced the launch of CSsports, a division of CrossleyShear Wealth Management, devoted exclusively to meeting the complex financial planning needs of sports professionals.
