Maximize your budget efficiency by eliminating financial risk
Sports sponsorship, by its nature, is fraught with uncertainty. Performance incentive bonuses can be highly beneficial in rewarding coaching staff or an administrator, but there are budgetary risks if your team has a better-than-expected season. Organizations need proactive strategies to prevent a budget shortfall that might overshadow an otherwise successful season.
HUB is dedicated to helping clients navigate this tangled web using proactive and proven strategies. We can help facilitate contractual bonus insurance coverage, allowing your athletic department or team organization to cover virtually any performance incentive bonus. These incentive bonuses can include winning division or conference titles, participating in any Bowl game, achieving a certain number of conference or overall wins, or winning a conference or National Coach of the Year award.
You want your coaching staff to inspire peak performance with the comfort of knowing your risk is fully covered, helping to stabilize your budget and protecting against financial uncertainty. As you enter contractual relationships, our goal is to maximize your budget efficiency by eliminating the financial risk that can adversely affect your bottom line.
