What our clients say

As a professional sportsman, it is vital to be able to focus upon my sport, with as few distractions as possible. DBL Asset Management take care of all my financial matters, so they never become a distraction to me. I have trust and confidence in the way they operate and work to maximise my interests. This is vital to me, meaning I can get on with my job, safe in the knowledge that DBL are working hard on my behalf.

Stephen Borthwick

Through my professional career DBL have helped look after my financial interests with a service above and beyond the level I originally expected. All my questions, big and small, regarding the present and the future have been answered swiftly and thoroughly in terms I can understand yet without any of the detail left out. This allows me to continue focusing on my career, trusting that DBL have my financial interests looked after.

Dan Cole

DBL was recommended to me a few years ago and I am so glad they were! For someone who had no real experience of financial planning, Dacre and his team have been of amazing value to me and my family.
DBL have explained matters in clear and concise ways, whilst always having my best interests at heart.

Their approach to financial planning has allowed me to concentrate on Rugby knowing that my long term financial goals are being cared for.

Joe Launchbury

DBL have given me a way to concentrate on rugby, safe in the knowledge that my financial affairs and future planning are being handled in an honest and upfront manner. I would recommend their company to anyone looking for someone to trust with important financial matters, all operated in a friendly way.

Geoff Parling

Over many years I have built up a great relationship with DBL Asset Management. Their approach to managing my long and short term financial goals is refreshing and professional. This allows me to get on playing my sport safe in the knowledge that DBL are looking after my best interests.

Mathew Tait

I only wish I met Dacre earlier on in my career. I first sought financial planning advice from Dacre and DBL when I was 23. Since then I feel I have continued to meet my financial objectives covering image rights, pension, player protection, life insurance and much more. I want to make sure my transition from rugby into my next career is as smooth as possible. I hope this day is a long way off but planning financially for it is essential. With two young kids it is really important to try and give them the best opportunities and start in life. I would love to be able to provide them with a good education and this is something Dacre and DBL are already planning for. I would recommend Dacre and DBL to anyone who is looking to plan for the future and be in control of their finances regardless of what tomorrow brings.

Ben Youngs

I have been a client of DBL Asset Management for a short while but during this time I have found the team most helpful with all aspects of my finances. They have a very professional approach in the way that they deal with any queries I may have and treat everything with the greatest of confidentiality. This is very much appreciated. I very much look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Tom Youngs

I was first introduced to Dacre several years ago and quickly developed both a professional and personal relationship with him. With my best interests at heart, he is always on the end of the phone and goes way beyond what you would normally expect from a financial advisor. He has gone out of his way on several occasions when there has been no financial incentive for him to do so, purely to make sure I am fully protected or getting the best deal for myself. I will continue to use him throughout my career to help prepare me for life after rugby. I can’t recommend him enough.

Tom Brady

Before I met Dacre I had already had a couple of financial advisers who just seemed to give minimal advice and struggled to put a proper plan in place for the future. I then joined up with Dacre and he quickly put a comprehensive plan in to place to help me and my family plan for our future for life after rugby. He also helped me get playing insurance and sorted out my pension. Dacre is my first point of contact for any financial questions I have and I would recommend him and DBL to anyone.

Jordan Crane

DBL Asset Management have been a big help to me since becoming a professional sportsman at 18. They have helped me to plan short and long term goals enabling me to start planning for my future after rugby. The service DBL provides is friendly and professional and the advice I have received is second to none. I have full confidence that my relationship with DBL will continue for the foreseeable future.

James Gaskell

It’s been a huge weight off my mind having Dacre advise and help me with my finances. It’s allowed me to be able to fully focus on the rugby. I’ve been hugely impressed by the services they offer. They are extremely professional whilst also maintaining a very personal touch. A great team.

Kai Horstmann

I have been working with DBL for many years now and having recently gone through the transition from playing to coaching I have seen the true benefits of the financial planning which they have steered me through. The change can be a sudden and scary one and with a young family there is no time for feeling sorry for yourself. I am very grateful to DBL for making sure I was in the best position possible and I look forward to working with them for years to come.

George Skivington

DBL Asset Management has proved invaluable to me through recent years taking care of both my short term financial needs and mid to long term financial goals. This planning has greatly aided what can be a difficult transition away from professional sport. The combination of professionalism and a personal approach has been refreshing and the relationship is one which I am sure will continue for many years.
