An independent advocate for athletes

to stop fraud and financial exploitation.

Pro athletes have lost $500 million to fraud by money managers.

Without BrightLights' oversight, the epidemic of fraud will continue.

A pro athlete's physical health is monitored by many professionals,

yet no one monitors advisors responsible for an athlete's financial health.


BrightLights Founder, David Byrne, interviewed by CNBC's "Halftime Report" contributor, Josh Brown,

named by The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, & TIME as the most important financial follow on Twitter.


Let a Certified Fraud Examiner & former financial regulator 

be the watchdog for your money & best interests:

risk assessment

know your advisor

Will your financial advisor work in your best interest? What products is he incentivized to sell? Is he/she really a fiduciary or not? 

BrightLights' Scouting Report grades financial advisors on conflicts, fees, disciplinary history, and more. 

Choose the best. It's your future.

prevent future misconduct

Prevent FRAUD

A lack of oversight is responsible for nearly half of frauds, and the monitoring and audits of accounts result in the largest deduction in fraud.

BrightLights continuously monitors your investment and bank accounts to increase accountability & decrease your risk of fraud. 

protect your investments

Trust But VERIFY

For veteran athletes who have never reviewed their accounts for fraudulent withdrawals, unsuitable investments, or conflicts of interest, BrightLights' Deep Dive will review years of past activity to ensure you have a clean bill of financial health for retirement.



Don't become another statistic.
