Hedging Long-Term Performance Risk

RockFence Capital provides financial products to MLB and MILB players to hedge their long-term performance risk. We founded RockFence Capital to help MLB players manage the fundamental career risks they face: long-term performance and financial risk. Our team consists of a diverse group of finance, professional baseball, and technology professionals who have joined together to help Major League Baseball players understand their future market value and manage the risk of not optimizing their long-term earnings potential.

RockFence was founded by Chris English. Mr. English’s decades of experience in developing financial products to help companies and individuals manage risk and create long-term financial stability offers an invaluable asset to players facing the uncertainty of their early professional careers. Chris’s experience as owner and operator of several minor league baseball teams has given him an extensive inside knowledge of the special risks and opportunities professional baseball players face.

Jeff Lyman spent 9 years in professional baseball, playing on the 40-man roster for the Atlanta Braves and Oakland Athletics. Following his baseball career, he pursued a career in the technology sector. Jeff’s connection with a vast network of players and agents will allow RockFence to expand its outreach to those we can work with to manage their performance risk and maximize their career earnings.
