We are a financial planning & wealth management firm looking for a self-driven, compassionate, and knowledgeable Associate Advisor. We are authentic, genuine, fun, and very much “non- corporate.” The image of a stockbroker, insurance agent, or Wall Street executive is about as far from who we are as one can get. Our core values align with the importance of family and work/life balance; we don’t “live to work” but rather “work to live” and, within reason, will be flexible in knowing that “life happens”; we don’t want to have our team choose between “work” and “family”—as long as the job at hand gets done.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
Participate in all client appointments (in person and virtual)
Handle client-related requests and account service inquiries w/o advisor input that have been escalated from the Practice Manager (PM).
For new clients, assist PM with data collection and input into financial planning software
Organize and analyze financial data received from new and existing clients
Formulate financial plans and strategies for clients (give advice)
Assist clients with implementation of recommended and agreed-upon strategies.
Generate reports and other deliverables for both client-facing and back-office needs
Ad hoc trading to satisfy client withdrawals and deposits
Running scheduled rebalances to ensure all client portfolios are within tolerance
END GOAL: work together to transfer existing IPWM clients to you as the lead advisor, freeing up founder to bring on newer/niche clients to serve.
Strong interpersonal and telephone communication skills
Ability to provide high level of authentic service and compassion to client relationships
Previous experience in CRM database management (i.e. Act, Salesforce.com, Redtail, Infusionsoft, etc.). Redtail CRM experience is preferred, but not required. Using and building workflows is a bonus, but not required.
Be comfortable and proficient using Mac OS or Windows OS.
Demonstrated proficiency in Office 365 (emphasis on Excel).
Dedication to high quality of work and significant attention to detail.
Ability to work independently (think through and solve problems on your own) but also collaborates/communicates well in a team environment.
Bachelor’s or equivalent and minimum of 1-2 years’ experience in financial services required.
CFP® Certification is preferred, but not required.
Must pass basic background and credit check.
We believe very strongly that “you get what you pay for” in life, talent being no exception. For a highly qualified candidate with experience, we are not shy of acknowledging that and rewarding it in turn. Paid holidays & PTO (unlimited vacation begins in 3rd year), flexible work schedule, safe harbor 401(k), and professional training & development are also part of the package.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter and resume as a PDF along with a short video specifying what it is about this opportunity that is attractive to you. Don’t be “corporate”; let your personality come out. Email firstname.lastname@example.org indicating “Associate Advisor opening” in the subject line.
