Intersect Capital wanted to bring together its two audiences – business professionals and celebrity athletes – for a discussion of their mutual interest in growing wealth. AMF orchestrated a first of its kind networking and informational event featuring a conversation about generational wealth management with NBA star Mychal Thompson and family.

The 2016 Wealth Management Symposium was a tremendous success. Clients came from as far away as the east coast to hear Intersect co-founders and managing partners Joe McLean and Dave Shiell, as well as Dave Butler, former Boston Celtics forward and current head of Global Financial Advisor Services at Dimensional Fund Advisors, discuss the 2016 landscape. The second half of the event was a conversation about generational wealth management with the Thompson family, father Mychal and sons Mychel, Klay and Trayce. Mychal Thompson left the Bahamas to move to the U.S. to play professional basketball and has instilled a sense of legacy onto his three sons, all of whom play professional sports and participate in charitable endeavors. Klay Thompson is a guard for our local Golden State Warriors and Trayce Thompson is an outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
