What salary range should I be looking at for a Client Associate role - I have 4 years’ experience in the role, I have Executive Asst/Sales experience, and I have a Bachelor’s in English/History. I have not take the SIE yet (preparing) and I do not have a Series 7 and 66 license yet. Thank you!

57500 depending on your COL area. $2500 built in stipend post licensure.

I was working at Merrill Lynch in 2019 as a client associate. I remembered the base salary was 55k for new grad (without any licenses); when you are registered (with SIE, 7, 63), it’s 65k base. Bonus/comp is totally up to your financial advisor. I based in NYC.
Good luck

55k start. Can negotiate between 55-60k but 55 standard and only seen 60 from outsiders or with relevant degree (ie finance business). One time increase of 2500 after registration.

Curious what’s a fair salary in MA? Was just told that there is likely not going to be a chance for a raise during my upcoming performance review due to my salary already being “above average for the industry” based on my employer’s questionable research.

I execute tasks from two investment advisors and two financial planners - they make the decisions of what should happen & I make it happen.
