Sabo focuses on financial planning and specialty insurance (life and disability) for athletes and entertainers.  A perfect connection would be someone in transition: free agency, new contracts, just signed on for a tour, etc.  This allows us to underwrite through our connections at Llyod’s of London to create custom policies and the most competitive on the market. (pricing and exclusions on the policy are equally important!)
