Gabriel Jesus is only 23 years old and still has a lot of time to show his football on lawns around the planet. But the Manchester City striker already thinks about his future and has allied even more with Ronaldo Fenômeno, one of the greatest Brazilian players in history, outside the four lines. In addition to the image management contract with Octagon Brasil – sports and entertainment marketing agency controlled by the former center forward, he signed in 2018 with R9 in the management of his assets, finances and family and now, this week, he became a partner of company.
“I embraced the opportunity to become a partner seeing, in my own routine, how essential it is to be able to count on all these service lines in one place. Ronaldo is one of the greatest references – if not the greatest – for all the players of my generation. Not only for what he did in football, but for having followed positive paths in the financial trajectory during and after his career “, reported Gabriel Jesus in an official statement released to the press.
In addition to Gabriel Jesus, R9 Gestão Patrimonial & Financeira has, among other clients, right-back Leo Moura, strikers Arthur Cabral and Róger Guedes and left-side Tamires, from Corinthians and the Brazilian women’s team.
The asset and financial management service, fundamental to an athlete’s career, is what the R9 Family Office offers, which has offices in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. In the position of CEO is Viviane Leal, who has worked with Ronaldo since 2003 and, with him, transformed her personal office into a business model.
“I always knew that as important as my career was the management of my assets, to play well off the pitch when I retired. For an athlete to have emotional balance and to focus 100% on his performance on the pitch, it is essential that his team off the field is doing a good job. The Family Office has always kept my business and personal life in order. And that’s exactly what we offer to other players, “explained Ronaldo, who is now the owner and president of Valladolid, the club of first division of the Spanish Championship.
Gabriel Jesus explains that he has known and admired the work of R9 since before the newly announced society. The period when he was just a client made him realize how important this was. “When I heard about R9, I became a customer with total confidence and had the peace of mind I needed in planning all financial activities, increasing earnings, reducing costs, monitoring and preserving assets, in addition to comprehensive family management that optimizes my time and offers a structure accessible to my family “, he said.
