Wealth Management Career
After his baseball career, Erik worked for Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, where he realized that the planning models in place would not suit the needs of wealthy athletes. He went on to obtain Certified Financial Planner and Certified Private Wealth Advisor certifications and cofounded AWM Capital, a multi-family office serving first-generation wealth creators (athletes, founders, doctors, key employees) with his brother Brandon Averill and their friend Robert McConchie.
Averill has spoken out about the "brokenness" of the financial industry in relation to athletes and has said the goal of AWM Capital is to counteract the bad advice athletes and entrepreneurs receive from mainstream broker-dealer firms.
