Game, set and cash to Edberg

from The Daily Mail
by Jonathan McEvoy

Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg was a rivalry that lit up the tennis world. In three consecutive Wimbledon finals they both fought for the greatest prize. Despite being set for life, Becker was recently declared bankrupt. Edberg, however, has been busy building a second fortune since retiring.

All in all, the two stars met 35 times between 1984 and 1996. Although Becker won the majority of their matches (25-10), Edberg prevailed in three of their four Grand Slam meetings. And, as the two men clocked up six major singles titles each, they amassed fortunes. In on-court winnings alone, Becker earned £20million, Edberg £15m.

Despite being set up for life, Becker was recently declared bankrupt for owing more than £3million to a private bank, Arbuthnot Latham. It is an undignified situation for a man who won Wimbledon as an unseeded 17-year-old in 1985 — the youngest man to claim the title.

The practice of a manager's funds investing in each other is legal in the Swedish funds market, as long as investors are fully advised of the ramifications of such investment activity - including any additional indirect costs. However, it is understood following an investigation by Dagens Industri that Case did not ensure all such information was fully shared with its investors.

 

«I didn’t really lose much money»

He fought against Boris Becker, won 6 Grand Slam titles and was leading the world rankings for 72 weeks. Meanwhile the former tennis professional Stefan Edberg works in his own financial management company. In this interview with “The Investment” he explains why investing money is much more different than playing tennis.

How did it happen that you got from a tennis player to a financial professional?

Edberg: As a professional tennis player you earn lots of money within a short time. I earned about 20 million dollars in my 13 years of professional career. During my active time I ceded the investment of my fortune to other people. Especially as a young player you only concentrate on your sport. You practice, eat and sleep, nothing more. But I was always interested in finances. After the end of my career I decided to care alone for it. I started to inform myself, read financial pages in the internet. I wanted to find out which ways there are to invest money.

Have you ever gambled away?

Edberg: I didn’t really lose much money. I’m cautious with investing. But since the dot-com bubble – where I had invested much in stocks – I believe in diversification. In the current crisis this works quite well.

How do you invest your money?

Edberg: I live in Växjö on an own farm with forested area where I lease the fields. I have also bought apartment buildings nearby. I invested much money in corporate bonds, especially from Sweden. In the current international debt crisis I feel more comfortable to give my money to a good Swedish bank instead of investing in consoles.
