Advisors I have a sincere question. No judgment regardless of your answer. Say you have a Senior Registered Client Associate with AWMA designation & 20 years experience in additionto 2 other less experienced CA's as partof your team. You urgently need another advisor to join your team due to the sheer volume of clients. Would you prefer to:
1) hire a junior advisor with little experience & possibly no licenses
2) seek to promote 1 of your CA's
