I am a financial advisor, licensed, CFP (only one on my team of 9) with 6 years of experience. My team has $1B AUM and I handle all the financial planning and estate projections for clients with NW up to $300M. I am also the primary relationship manager for ~ 50 clients ($100k-$11m AUM/client). I’m curious as to what fair compensation is for this type of responsibility? I’m also looking for ways to “track” my contributions for the clients I am not the lead on?
