Our Clients

At Blue Sky Group, we provide family office solutions for Artists, Athletes, and Executives.

Singers/Songwriters

Musicians require custom financial strategies to accommodate irregular cash flows from royalties, publishing deals, and touring income. Additionally, a transition plan is critical when preparing for a catalog sale or life after performing. Having an understanding of the challenges that musicians and songwriters face financially allow us to be a great addition to their team. Our team works in conjunction with their managers, attorneys, booking agents, and other team members to ensure a true cohesive financial plan is in place at any given time. We want our clients to focus their time on their passion and families. Our team has experience developing solutions to help these clients make solid decisions.

Professional Athletes

Professional Athletes’ careers can be short in length; therefore, a sound long-term plan preparing the athlete for the next phase is critical. Managing bonuses, understanding player benefit programs, and reviewing contract terms are all necessary steps to develop a plan. Since most athletes get large sums of income early in their careers, we focus on risk management, with a belief that the best offense is a good defense.

We act as the financial quarterback, making sure that our clients’ estate, tax, insurance, and investment plans are effective. By working closely with their agents, bankers, and attorneys, our team makes sure everyone is performing at the highest level.

Business Executives

Corporate Executives can be busy trying to balance demanding work schedules, travel, and family time. Evaluating long-term benefits is vital to making a transition towards retirement. Our team realizes that balance in life is important, and to obtain this balance there must be processes in place to manage your assets. We help to provide the discipline needed to succeed, and have the experience to provide solutions to this group of clientele. Let our team help you develop and implement a detailed investment, tax, estate, and insurance plan that meets your needs.
