With that, here are our top 10 reasons we encourage students, recent grads and career changers to explore a career path as a financial advisor.

  1. Industry-wide, financial services firms are eager to hire the next generation of advisors. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the number of job openings for financial advisors will jump 27%, or 60,300 additional jobs, by 2022. That’s much faster than the 10.8% average growth rate for all occupations.
  2. This dramatic need for financial advisors is attributed to the aging out of many of the industry’s current advisors. According to global research firm Cerulli Associates, 43% of financial advisors are over age 55 and the average age of advisors is currently 50.9 years.
  3. Just as the industry is expecting a decrease in financial advisors, more investors than ever are seeking the advice of professionals in the wake of the Great Recession, creating an increasing need for the next generation of financial advisors.
  4. According to a study published by Pershing LLC, an estimated $30 trillion in wealth will transfer to the next generation of investors over the course of the next 30 years. As this wealth is transferred, many in the next generation will be looking to align themselves with new financial advisors.
  5. Experienced advisors report a lack of time and rapport to develop relationships with their clients’ children and/or grandchildren.Laying the groundwork with these next-gen clients increases your chances of earning the privilege of managing their inherited assets.
  6. In a 2012 Cerulli Associates report, only 7.9% of financial advisers were women. At the same time, women have decision-making power over 39% of all investable assets in the U.S. This need for female financial advisors provides ample opportunity for women interested in a career in the financial services industry.
  7. Financial advisor ranked No. 4 on the U.S. News and World Report Best Business Jobs for 2014—based on hiring demand, salary, industry growth and work-life balance.
  8. According to the U.S Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the mean annual wage of a personal financial advisor was twice that of the average income reported for all other occupations. Some industry projections have starting salaries forecasted to rise 3.5% in the next year.
  9. As a financial advisor, there are multiple career paths to follow at large firms, small or mid-size branches or as an entrepreneur eventually opening a solo practice.
  10. Opportunities are not location specific. Like other service providers of influence, doctors, dentists and accountants, financial advisors are needed in large cities and small towns across the country.
