Find what you need to thrive — flexibility, opportunity and community

You recognize that client relationships are key to a successful practice. We do, too. It's why we provide the flexibility, opportunity and community you need to put more within reach for your clients and your practice.

More flexibility in the things that matter most

You want more out of life — more time, more control and more ways to build your practice. So you have the freedom to choose how to affiliate with our company — by becoming an employee advisor or franchise advisor or choosing to join a team or run your practice independently. Whatever you choose, you'll have the flexibility to manage your practice in a way that works for you.

More opportunity to grow through financial planning

When it comes to our personal approach to financial planning and advice, we think you're a natural fit. That's because women have an advantage as financial advisors — they tend to be good listeners and empathize with clients.

Those are qualities that matter to us, because we get to know clients as people, not balance sheets. We listen closely to understand what's important to them and what they want out of life. Then, with their dreams in mind, we build a plan with the right products and solutions to help make them reality.

We'll provide all the support and training you need to deliver our unique brand of financial planning and advice. And you'll have the opportunity to touch your clients' lives in a profound way. You'll get to know them on a deeper level, gain more insight into their financial lives, and help them put financial independence more within reach.

More community among advisors

We recognize the difference women can make in this industry, and we've put in place the support, critical tools, training and networks you need to run and grow your practice in a way that's right for you, including:

  • Personalized learning paths combining peer-to-peer, web-based and just-in-time learning programs
  • Coaching programs dedicated to the development of advisors
  • Thought leadership supported by cutting edge research to provide advisors key insights
