How to manage / work with those who don’t see your vision?

I was hired because my company realises it’s out of touch with younger generations and I come from an arts background with a fresh take on things and am not your typical ‘financial adviser’.

However, all of my creative ideas are blocked and I’m told to tone them down but this is the whole reason they hired me.

How have you handled similar situations where people don’t get your vision and are preventing you from doing your job?

That is tough. The older advisors are destined to die with the book and you will find yourself with no assets in the next ten years... Not sure you can win that situation but good luck
