Lance Fair Child’s love for baseball was evident from the beginning of his life. Family members and friends knew that something drew Lance to the sport. Still, his rise was yet to be seen.
Baseball was nothing more than a pass time at first; he played with friends around the neighborhood, but it became a true passion. Lance joined teams when he was younger and continued to develop his skills as a baseball player.
Lance was born in Rowlett, Texas, which molded his passion as well. It could be said that his first taste of organized sports was at Rowlett High School. He wanted to play for teams in Texas where he would be able to show others just how much talent could be found in the sunny state.
Lance went on to the University of Texas of the Permiam Basin where he joined the UTPB Falcons and played as number 24.
The sport took him to different places like Las Vegas. It was there where he played for the Train Robbers under the Pecos League back in 2015. Lance joined the Roswell Invaders not too long after that, which was under the Pecos League and played with them in 2016. That same year, Fair Child transferred to the American Association where he played for the Sioux Falls Canaries.
Lance had another ace up his sleeve, though, because he was interested in finances just as much as he was interested in sports. He wanted to use his passion and drive to help others. It was a bit of a slow burn, but he helped launched the Lance Fair Child & Associates in Odessa, Texas where he currently resides.
Today you can find the retired baseball player running Lance Fair Child & Associates which is a wealth management group that focuses on several aspects of personal finance. For one, it helps people understand proxy voting standards as they may change from time to time. Lance does not want anyone to miss an opportunity to cast a vote at an important shareholder meeting. There was a recent discussion and comments presented for the public to give feedback on and his firm was one of many that provided their thoughts and feedback on the definition of a covered clearing agency. To date over 25 different firms and wealth management firms from Florida to California have provided their commentary to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The wealth management group also discusses clearing agency standards. Trade settlements can be hard to deal with and time consuming. It is important to know the ins-and-outs of the entire process, which is where Lance’s group can come in and shed some light.
There is no doubt that some people would be surprised to learn that a baseball lover had time to become a bona fide finance expert.
