The recruiting market for Financial Advisors is as hot as ever!

The recruiting market for top advisors is more competitive than ever. Broker Dealers and RIAs focused on growth need to have a strong recruiting strategy in place or they will struggle to win business.

The most successful firms are doing a number of things to recruit top advisors, including:

  • Offering competitive compensation packages
  • Providing access to top-tier technology and resources
  • Offering a strong culture of support and collaboration
  • Focusing on service excellence
  • Marketing programs focused on expedited growth

In addition to these offerings, advisors are also looking for firms that share their values and goals. They want to work for a firm that they are proud to be a part of, and that they believe in.

Here are some of the major factors advisors and their teams are addressing when looking for a new firm:

  • Compensation and benefits: Advisors are looking for a payout and expenses they feel are fair and don’t want to overpay for the resources they are being provided.
  • Technology: Advisors need access to the latest technology to help them provide their clients with the best possible service. They also want to be able to work from anywhere, so they need a firm that offers a flexible work environment.
  • Culture: Advisors want to work with a firm that has a strong culture of support and collaboration. They want to be part of a team that is working together to achieve common goals.
  • Service: Advisors want to work with a Broker Dealer or RIA that is committed to providing excellent service to their advisors. Advisors want to focus on providing advice and guidance to their clients without having to worry about trouble shooting back-office problems. This can include back-office responsiveness, flexibility and getting the correct answers in a timely manner.

Here are some additional tips for recruiting top advisors:

  • Build relationships with advisors early on. Get to know them, their goals, and their needs.
  • Be transparent about your firm’s culture and values. Make sure that they are a good fit for the advisor.
