Does anyone here hold a non-CFA designation (CFP, CAIA, FRM etc.) and what kind of role/position do you have?
Hi fellow ladies in finance! Curious to know: has anyone seriously contemplated leaving the industry for similar reasons? I have over 10 years experience working for various firms, now as a CFP but I'm really feeling the burnout. I've worked hard to be in this position, but honestly...I'm tired of working really hard to put plans together and help people that do not do what they said they they want to do, and instead we are nagging clients to get shit done. The things, as planners, we cannot do
I'm currently looking for entry level opportunities in advisory. I'm fully licensed (SIE/7/63/65) and ready to start my CFP as soon as it's affordable or sponsored. I'm struggling to find opportunities that don't have a large emphasis on insurance sales. Anyone have any recommendations or opportunities?
Currently a Wealth Advisor for Citi but I honestly hate it here with a passion it’s the worst company I’ve ever worked for in my life and I’ve been in Wealth Management in the banking channel for over a decade. Series 7, Series 63, Life, CFP, ChFC, and soon to have my MBA with a focus in Mergers & Acquisitions. I’m look to enter another area of Finance at this point instead of starting over somewhere else from scratch, but not sure what direction to go. Interested in Investment Banking or M&A.

I’ve been in the industry for 23+ years, 16+ of those spent as a Producing Branch Manager. I hold S7, S63, S66, S24 and I’ve completed the education for the CFP (need to pass the exam). I excel in relationship building and providing exceptional service. I’ve only been on the full-service side for the past 2 years and my book of managed money is about $10M, with another $10M+ being self-directed by clients. I’d love to find an RIA job, what type of role would be suggested?

What’s your take on including an alphabet soup in your signature? Which of your designations do you intentionally exclude and why? ex PhD, JD, MBA, CPA, CFA, CAIA, PMP, PMI, CIMA, CFP, etc etc

Anyone know of firms with the Los Angeles area that help you and encourage you to attain the CFP? I’m finding it hard finding local firms that have career trajectory from Client Servicing to full Advisory work.
I’m willing to pay for self study and take local classes but would love and appreciate sponsorship.
Any advice in general for making the jump from more client servicing to advisory would be greatly appreciated.
Ideally I’d love to make my way towards either an Advisor or Strategist.
About to turn 30 and getting increasingly worried that my social life is limited to my work place. Have a bunch of friends but they’re of course busy sometimes and I end up with no plans for a whole weekend (dating life is pretty dry as well). How can I meet more people? I always wanted to have a big friend group but seems impossible to find now, unless I join a cult or something lol

I have an interview coming up with Church & Dwight. When the recruiter emailed me with 3 interview times I thought he was asking me what time works best. Turns out he was telling me I was scheduled for 3 different interviews for 3 different teams in one day. Has anyone heard of a company doing that or gone through this for an interview? It seems odd to me

Anyone ever wish for a short hospital stay to just catch a fully excused break from work? I’m tired of keeping all these balls in the air.
I obviously know especially in this climate hospitals are the worst place to be - but I guess I just mean generally. How else can you get a fully detached break from this non-stop life?

Additional Posts in Retirement Plan Advisors
How do you get appointments with plan sponsors? They are hard to get in contact with and then 401(k) seems so low on their priority list or they "are happy with" (don't know about) their plan.
Recently attended an FA conf. where there was discussion about 401(h) plans & their tax advantages.
I know a variety of 401(k) providers available via my B/D but don’t know of 401(h) ones. Do you ?
Does anyone partner with any 401(k) robo-advisors like Guideline, Vestwell, Human Interest, Ubiquity, etc.? How are they compared to more established 401(k) providers? Pros/cons to any or all?
Does anyone have any thoughts as to how Ascensus’ massive takeover of small, local TPAs will affect the industry long term?
Thinking about all the fiduciary options: Participant 3(38), Plan 3(38) or 3(21), Admin 3(16). What can a RK provide that would help us win plans with you?
Please ask more to join. Would like to get some more feedback from other Retirement Plan Consultants. For example:
