People join People, not Companies
We believe that of all the occupations out there, being a financial planner ranks in the top 20.
Apparently, we are not the only one who thinks so.
CareerCast is a US-based organization that have been publishing jobs rating since 1988 using indicators such as work environment, stress levels and growth outlook to rate jobs and financial planners have always been in the top spots.
As wonderful as we believe this career opportunity to be, we don’t think it is suitable for everyone.
Statistics from LIMRA International, a leading trade association for insurance and financial services, indicate that the average four-year retention rate for financial advisors is 15%*.
That means that only about one in ten remain in the career after the first four years.
