Through Its Innovative Model, Advisors Ahead Has Built A Bridge Connecting Recent College Graduates With Financial Services Firms

Is the Financial Services Industry on the Verge of a Talent Crisis?

According to a new survey by Fidelity, more than 70% of brokerage and RIA executives say there is a shortage of new advisors to replenish the ranks.  The survey suggests that the industry may need to rethink its approach to hiring new talent.  Advisors Ahead believes that the continued success of the Financial Advisor profession depends on a training model that breaks from tradition and is attractive to the next generation of advisors.  Advisors Ahead has been delivering a new and innovative training platform since 2012, one which we believe will become the blueprint for the training platform of the future.

“Advisors Ahead receives “Two Thumbs Up” in my book!”

“Advisors Ahead receives “Two Thumbs Up” in my book!  I’ve interviewed two candidates for the position of Associate Lead Advisor for my office.  Either candidate would make a fine selection for this position.  Thank you again!” – John M., Advisor in Washington State

“I was fortunate to receive a scholarship through Advisors Ahead to the Peak Advisor Excell Conference. The conference was geared towards running a business and focusing on the relationship with the client, rather than the actual process of financial planning. It was perfect. In my financial planning classes, topics such as marketing, planning client appreciation events and motivating your staff are never discussed. I cannot be more thankful for this experience. From what I’ve seen and heard, Advisors Ahead is an incredible company and program. The trip was full of great networking and learning, and Advisors Ahead made sure that happened.”
Mitch Byrum, Student, Texas A&M University
“Through Advisors Ahead I was provided a wonderful opportunity to work with an Ameriprise Financial Franchisee out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. This privilege allowed for me to grow in my knowledge of the Financial Industry….From biweekly calls to setting up interviews with Financial Advisors across the country, the staff was nothing less than superb. They also provided me with quick responses to all the my questions and concerns.

In closing, Advisors Ahead has given me the necessary tools needed for a young person in this industry to become successful. Advisors Ahead is an amazing program and whatever you put into the program you will get back tenfold. I encourage everyone reading this to not miss out on a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
