New Financial Advisors

Experience a Fast Start in Your New Career

Our Associate Financial Advisor program is a comprehensive training program to help qualified candidates gain the securities industry knowledge and licensing required to enter the wealth management profession. It is also designed to help sharpen the people and business skills necessary to be well prepared for success in one of the most challenging — and potentially most rewarding — sales careers available.

This elite 18-week program is unlike any other. It features a combination of self-study materials and interactive training modules, conference calls, classroom instruction, personal projects, case study review, simulated activities, role playing and one-to-one coaching. To help participants focus on mastering the extensive curriculum and achieving all the required milestones, a competitive salary, including benefits, is offered during the training period.

During the first 100 days in business, new financial advisors benefit from one-to-one coaching and peer-to-peer conference calls providing valuable feedback as they execute their business plan, work with our solution set and develop learned people skills in support of creating and deepening business relationships. This “fast start” phase of the program helps catapult new financial advisors forward during one of the most critical times of their new career.

Beyond the first 100 days, new financial advisors continue participating in monthly conference calls featuring business development information, professional development concepts and actionable market-driven ideas.
