Sandra Richards – the Head of Global Sports & Entertainment and Segment Sales & Engagement at Morgan Stanley – stated that the company is only scratching the surface of the possibilities of esports.

“The future around the business of esports is vast, and all things demonstrate that we’re just scratching the surface. More importantly, esports is a pathway for better personal opportunities and outcomes, whether through earning college scholarships, winning significant prize money, or broadening personal networks and exposure through competition and engagement,”

 she said.

“It’s been great to see how the growth has positively influenced those involved. Our place in all of this is to ensure that our team of Global Sports Entertainment Directors and Financial Advisors are made available to steer gamers, their families, businesses, and other esports community stakeholders toward sound financial decisions that will yield more sustained success throughout their journeys.

“That includes anything from wealth building, financial planning, and other key areas of importance that can lay a solid financial foundation for them to embark on whatever endeavors they choose. We’re thrilled to be working with the Esports Trading Association to carry out this mission.”
