WeAreTENZING

Sherpa Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary were the first people to reach the summit of Mt Everest. While being a part of the partnership to reach the top of Everest was a huge accomplishment, arguably their greatest impact came in the subsequent work done in places like Nepal; the platform of being the first to the top of Everest was what made these achievements possible.

WeAreTENZING, the company, provides that partnership to exceptional people to assist them to reach the top of their personal ‘Everest’ and to then use that accomplishment to go beyond their talent to lead significant lives and have a meaningful impact in the world.

A complete management model designed to look after your playing career and brand alignments, as well as your personal and financial wellbeing.

AUTHENTIC PARTNERSHIPS

Today’s consumers can smell bullshit a mile away. They are looking for authentic relationships that make sense. By identifying a cause that our influencers truly believe in, then finding them corporate partners with similar beliefs, we are building their endorsements on rock solid foundations.

ENDURING PARTNERSHIPS

Our long-term strategies span well past a typical sports career and aid in transitioning an athlete from their active sports goal-focused life to an even bigger challenge; genuinely affecting meaningful change. Imagine you’ve recently retired from competition… the “what are you doing these days” question is a lot easier to answer when you’re partnered with driven non-profits and corporates effecting real change in the world.

LEGACY

Long after the shine has worn off from your gold medals, long after the crowd has gone quiet, long after the spotlight fades you will ask yourself, “What did I really achieve?” WeAreTENZING Connect is here to help you meaningfully answer that question.

WeAreTENZING CONNECT FEATURED WORK

WeAreTENZING Financial wraps a suite of fully integrated, personalized, expert financial management services around exceptional people providing them the financial security to focus on their passion.

THE CHALLENGES

  1. Over 50% of professional athletes have never sought financial advice

  2. More than half of professional athletes are broke 5 years after retirement

  3. Current wealth management is separated into self-interested, non-communicative silos

  4. Many athletes and artists currently accept investment guidance from friends or team members who may be unqualified to offer expert advice

  5. Talent working in multiple tax zones are faced with unique challenges

OUR SOLUTION

A specialized, integrated “family office” approach traditionally used by the ultra-wealthy to coordinate structure, income, expenses, and taxes through a single entity. This is made possible through WeAreTENZING Financial’s partnership with MedRecruit & MedCapital, New Zealand’s largest medical recruitment group handling over 25,000 doctors.
