Bernstein Private Wealth Management has hired a former NFL offensive tackle as a financial advisor, according to local news reporting.
Winston Justice, whose NFL career included six years with the Philadelphia Eagles, joins Bernstein in Nashville and will help the firm bring on professional athletes, the Nashville Business Journal writes.
Justice began his financial services career in 2015 with Wells Fargo Advisors in Florida, according to his BrokerCheck profile.
After staying at the wirehouse for a little over a year, Justice was already working with 17 high net worth families, the Naples Daily News wrote in 2016. Before joining Bernstein, Justice was a portfolio manager for California-based Pacific Income Advisers, according to the Nashville Business Journal.
Bernstein’s Nashville office now has 15 people, a spokeswoman for the firm tells the publication. Overall, Bernstein Private Wealth Management manages close to $100 billion, the Nashville Business Journal writes.
Justice is one of a number of former professional athletes currently working as a financial advisor. Former first-round NFL draft pick Levi Brown recently joined Surevest Wealth Management as an investment advisor. Ronnie Brown, a former NFL Pro Bowl running back, is now a financial advisor with Wells Fargo.
Former NBA pro Chris Dudley, who was a journeyman center in the league from 1987 to 2003, is a partner and senior financial advisor at Congress Wealth Management.
