A financial industry professional and ex-professional baseball player has been named a Registered Player Financial Advisor, highlighting the crossover of sports and wealth management. 

Chase R Crump is a partner and financial guide at WFA – Plan | Invest |Inspire, aka WFA

The NFLPA runs a program that connects qualified financial advisors with current and retired NFL players to offer money and investment management services. 

The program was initiated by the NFLPA more than two decades ago. Crump will expand on WFA's existing support for collegiate, semi-professional, professional and retired athletes across a wide range of sports, as well as those involved in name, image and likeness endorsement deals. 

Crump is a registered NFLPA advisor in Louisiana.

“Many athletes come from underserved communities, and coming into sudden wealth flips their world upside down. Signing an NFL contract represents a critical juncture in an athlete’s life. As such, it’s imperative that they have a trusted advocate on their side to guide them toward sound financial decisions,” Crump said. 

Crump played in the Frontier League and was a NCAA Division III baseball player for the Louisiana Christian University Wildcats. He has a master’s degree in business. Crump has almost 20 years of financial services experience, including stints at Chase Bank and Capital One.
