The 22-year old may be an international superstar these days, but she couldn’t have done it without the assistance of a certain financial adviser.
According to a Business Insider report, the adviser that changed her life’s fortunes is none other than her father.
As well as moving his family to the spiritual home of country music, Nashville, when Swift was 14 to help her pursue her dream, her father has also taken a big role in the financial side of her superstar-related enterprises.
An adviser with Merril Lynch, Swift senior lists various music superstar-related activities in the ‘Other Business Activities’ section of his Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) profile, reported Business Insider.
These include being an ‘Authorisation Associated Signer’ for Swift Merchandising and Firefly Entertainment; and an ‘Authorisation Associated Signer for family member’ of a business described as an ‘airplane hanger for private jet’.
It would seem that moving to Nashville is an investment that has certainly paid off.
