Location: NY, New York

The Position
The Financial Advisor is a critical member of the wealth management team and is the firm's face to the market. He/she not only identifies and cultivates new clients, but maintains a close, ongoing relationship with his or her existing base of clients. A successful Financial Advisor becomes the client's trusted advisor for all things related to financial planning.

Our Financial Advisors are registered investment advisors with a fiduciary duty to serve the best interest of their clients. Financial Advisors work closely with their clients to understand each client's long-term goals, financial needs, tax situation and tolerance for risk. Then they develop and execute a plan to help each client reach their goals in the most prudent way. The Financial Advisor is also responsible for monitoring the plan and its progress and communicating with the client on an ongoing basis.

Financial Advisors report to Managing Directors, whose role is to mentor and ensure an Advisor's success. Managing Directors guide Advisors in developing sales strategies, implementing a business plan, cultivating sales and servicing skills, and capitalizing on meetings with clients, professionals and prospects.

Each Advisor is supported by a group of highly qualified Private Client Associates who become an extension of the Advisor in handling a significant proportion of routine client inquiries and other logistical matters.

A Financial Advisor is a vital position at one of the nation's outstanding investment firms, and an opportunity to create a life's career with substantial financial rewards.
