Looking to potentially leave my advisor/financial planning role at an insurance BD in Milwaukee area. Any RIAs in the area looking? Or any advice on best ways to find opportunities at an RIA without posting a resume on a job site? I am not looking to start my own firm as my book is not that large.

Debating an offer from JP Morgan for VP Private Banker. Would be a big comp increase but also a role change. I'm currently a private banker on the lending side with 15 years experience with a cush gig and zero sales pressure. JPM pros are comp, a new challenge, build skills, expand network. Cons I lose my nice corner office and 30 hour work week, worse benefits/perks, and I'm apprehensive about the culture/sales pressure. Any insight or advice?

I need some advice on negotiating payout structure. I work for a pretty large firm in that we have 7 advisors and manage around $500M AUM. I’m just getting started transitioning from a primary licensed staff role to commission-only FA. Payout for me would be 40%. Is this normal? Should this be negotiated? Can it change as I get more business. Also side note I just brought in my first whale and I’m super excited about it!

I have almost 3 years working for a RIA (first and only job). I really like the company, colleagues, culture etc. I started as an analyst and now my role is portfolio management. I have also brought some clients to the firm (around $6M). My compensation is okey, but I would like to make more money. What are ways of adding value to the RIA other than bringing new clients? On prospecting, do you have any tips for a 26yr old on how to get new clients? It is not easy nor cheap to meet HNWI in miami

Advice needed please. I am a Recruiter considering going back to the Advisor world, though to be clear I have 6/63 life and health. Currently recruiting for a hybrid RIA so I know the business and a great deal about planning though no designations. I'd love any advice on whether or not I should try to get my 7/66 now or just find a firm to sponsor me & get them when I land. I definitely need a base and am considering a bank advisor role, but love the Independent space. Any advice welcome thx!

Curious to get an idea of where my company compares regarding compensation. I am one of a team of 5 advisors dedicated to about 6500 individual clients and $2.97Billion in client assets. Each one of us is fully licensed (7,66 and insurance), and I hold my 24. My base is $80k with a VC target of 40% of base salary. Goals are mostly made up of client satisfaction surveys, asset additions, and retention. I feel that we are grossly underpaid for the role, but not sure exactly how that compares.

BCG or MBB folks, got a call from the recruiter today that the outcome of decision round and calibration call today was positive and the lead partner will give me a call on Monday to discuss with me on the role and offer directly by himself. Trying to get some inside from the HR but she just asked me to wait and hear from the partner, sounds a bit weird and surprise to me as normally this state was usually with the HR.
