Aaron Warburton:

" The players are, again, a cross-section of society. I think a number of people, myself included, got swept up in what was crypto, what was NFTs, and everyone was Googling. You know, the next big thing and it comes down to, I guess your risk, but also your level of education. If you've got research as a key driver as to how you invest and you have one out of ten, you've got to stay away from crypto. If you're a nine out of ten and you live a sort of life, and a lot of these players have taken risks, you make courageous to get back on the field, or, you know, certain things to excel in their field. They're pretty risk-averse guys and girls now.

So it is tricky, and I think it's a pretty cluttered marketplace when it comes to advice where everyone's got it. But in terms of where the trust lies and who is reputable from a club's perspective to be recommended to a player, like I said, it's a bit of a, you know, it's unknown in the sense it's been happening for quite a while. But look, if you work with 600 players, I don't think there's (only) one method."
