Adewale Ogunleye: The NFL star now leading a wealth division at UBS

Adewale Ogunleye was rich and already retired from American Football when he learned what a basis point was. He’s now head of a new UBS wealth segment called Athletes & Entertainers that helps sports icons and singers plan their financial future.

There are many Adewale Ogunleyes.

There’s the kid born and raised in New York City by parents devoted to his education. There’s the Adewale – ‘Wale’, pronounced ‘Wah-lay’, to friends – who overcame injury and illness in college to become a star player in America’s tough National Football League. Then there’s the man called ‘Prince’ by some, by dint of his grandfather having been king of Emure, a town in southern Nigeria.
