We have openings for self starters to join our award winning and dynamic team of Financial Advisors working in their local communities on behalf of Acorn Life
Financial Advisor Career
Now more than ever people need help with their financial affairs. We are currently recruiting to expand our team of Personal Financial Advisors nationwide to help people with their financial planning. Demographic and economic trends are very promising for a career as a financial advisor. People are living longer, meaning they will have to plan to make their retirement funds last over a longer period of time. Increased life spans require that consumers plan for long-term needs. The variety and sophistication of financial products means that consumers need more advice to protect their incomes, families and to grow their wealth.
Impact: Financial Advising is not about selling. It’s about helping others – helping them prepare for the risks we all face – and being there when they need it most. In this career, you will literally change the course of people’s lives.
Independence: You will have control over your business. You will decide who your clients are and how you spend your time. Becoming an Acorn Life Financial Adviser is like going into business for yourself, but without the capital investment normally required in starting a business and with extensive support from Acorn Life.
Income: Financial Advisers invest a great deal of time and effort in the early years. But for those who stay the course, the financial rewards are very high.
The basic package on offer is €25,000 per annum plus bonuses. You could expect your overall first year remuneration to be €40,000 - €50,000 with these bonuses.
Personal Financial Advisor Role
We seek financial advisers to develop new business opportunities within their locality.
You will be dedicated to selling through the development of long term relationships with clients. Through face to face meetings, you will analyse the financial needs of clients and provide solutions that will help them achieve their goals and objectives. You will identify markets where you can build a referral base and grow your business. You will grow your client bank by selling to clients needs. This is an exciting and demanding role where results will be achieved through good lead generation skills, the development of long term business relationships with individual clients and the ability to deliver professional and trusted advice to them over the long term.
