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.

You will be dedicated to recruiting through the development of long term relationships in your community. Through face to face meetings and interviews, you will select suitable candidates for the role of personal financial advisors and once recruited you will work with them to 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 agency by recruiting and retaining top quality financial advisors. This is an exciting and demanding role where results will be achieved through good lead generation skills, the development of long term business relationships and the ability to motivate and manage a team over the long term.
