RBC Wealth Management has recruited a former NFL quarterback to its wealth management team, the company says.
Caleb Hanie has joined RBC’s Heide Wealth Management Group in Palos Heights, Ill., as an associate financial advisor, according to a press release from the firm.
Hanie, whose six-year career in the NFL included three years with the Chicago Bears, had been a client of the Heide group, RBC says.
He’s now going through RBC’s two-year associate financial advisor training program and is expected to get his initial licenses in the spring of 2020, according to the press release.
“As a player, the [Heide] team brought a consistent level of excellence, quality and experience with pro athletes,” Hanie says in the press release. “I always loved working with them, and when they moved to RBC, it was an even higher level of excellence and quality. I wanted to be a part of it.”
David Heide, the Heide group’s managing director, came over to RBC in 2016 after 20 years at Wells Fargo Advisors and its predecessor firm A.G. Edwards & Sons, according to his BrokerCheck profile.
Hanie is one of several former professional athletes turning to a career in financial advice after retiring from sports.
Winston Justice, whose NFL career included six years with the Philadelphia Eagles, last month joined Bernstein Private Wealth Management, after starting his career at Wells Fargo Advisors in 2015.
Ronnie Brown, a former NFL Pro Bowl running back, became a financial advisor with Wells Fargo, while former first-round NFL draft pick Levi Brown recently joined Surevest Wealth Management. And former NBA pros Chris Dudley, Tony Parker, Troy Murphy have all joined the wealth management industry.
