The agencies that make billions from sports

Sports agencies net worth — Steve Sorensen

Over the past decades, agencies have picked up on this and have begun to represent and market sports personalities. Sports agents have pocketed millions of dollars from the athletes they represent in exchange for the exposure and deals their clients have received. From transferring teams to endorsing products to simply appearing at an event, sports agencies have made big bucks, taking a percentage from what their clients are paid.

In Los Angeles for example, there’s the Creative Artists Agency or CAA, an agency valued at over $9 billion. CAA has been by far the biggest firm of its kind. They have represented stars in basketball, baseball, hockey, and football, and have earned an estimated average of $700 million a year.

But CAA isn’t the only agency out there raking in cash. There are firms such as Wasserman ($3.7 billion worth of athlete contracts) and Excel Sports Management (with several agents placed in the top 50 best sports agents in the United States), that have managed to take advantage of the countless talents in the sporting world and have made them into jaw-dropping sources of income.

Hello there. I'm Steve Sorensen, a Des Moines-based investment strategist and business blogger. Welcome to my business blog. I received my degree in business from Iowa State University. I do a lot of research on many of the world's most successful companies, in particular on how they built up their net worth over the years. Not only do the success stories of Fortune 500 companies fascinate me so, they also provide a framework to analyze the potential growth outlook of many companies. This assists me in helping my clients find the right mix of companies to add to their portfolios. I spend my weekend downtime keeping fit by playing tennis doubles with friends. I enjoy country music and like to keep updated on the country music festivals. Check back from time to time to see what I've written about.
