Xpro Life after football
16 Sep 2016
Players who played before 1986 were largely left to their own devices when it came to pensions. Most didn't do anything about it and thought like a lot of modern day players that "the dream woyuld never end".

In 1986 the "Players Cash scheme" was introduced where football provided a pension that the player was able to claim when they reached the age of 35. A fantastic idea as it provided a lump sum amount of cash that the player could use to :-

* Buy into a business

* Use to re-train for a new career

* Start their own business

In 2006 however pension legislation changed. Players reaching the age of 35 could no longer take the ONE OFF CASH PAYMENT. Instead professional footballers had to fall in line with other professions 25% Cash can be taken at the age of 55 years with the remainder used to buy an annuity.

Many players who qualified for the players "Cash Scheme" do not know that they have a pension so we implore you that if you are in any doubt and you held a playing contract from 1986 to 2006 please contact XPRO for further advice.

When you leave the game you need to undergo a review of your pension arrangements and to evaluate if your pension will provide enough money for when you inevitably will reach retirement age.

XPRO operates a panel of trusted Financial Advisers who will firstly conduct a Free of Charge review and give you impatial advice as to what to do next.

If you are one of the estimated 8,000 former players who have not claimed or do not know whether they have a sum of money in the "Players Cash Scheme" please contact XPRO on:

An Alternative Short Term Financial Solution
Borro believes that people who own valuable assets should be able to borrow against them or sell them with speed, 100% privacy and impeccable service. For too many people, much needed liquidity – required to seize opportunities or address unplanned events – is trapped in these valued but illiquid assets. Banks typically don't provide these services – but we do.

Borro allows clients to unlock the value from personal assets such as luxury watches, jewellery, prestige cars, fine wine, art, antiques, memorabilia and more. We have an in-house team of valuation experts with vast industry knowledge and clients are assigned their own dedicated account manager to find the best solution to their cash flow needs. Discretion is integral to our business, thus transactions are completely private. We work with clients from a variety of industries, including celebrity athletes, so we also fully appreciate the need for quality customer service and speed of action. Let us help you realise the maximum value for your assets in the quickest possible time, so you can capture the new opportunities as they emerge.
