Women in the United States represent a major source of purchasing power and a revenue-generating opportunity for the financial industry yet the percentage of women financial advisors hovers around 30 percent — and has barely moved since 2005. In many firms, women represent fewer than 25 percent of total advisors, the threshold at which the U.S. Department of Labor officially designates an industry or occupation as “male dominated.” This book presents ideas, tips, and advice from field and corporate leaders who are successfully integrating strategies to attract and retain women into their firms and organizations.
If you sometimes feel as if your agency has a revolving door — with new agents entering while others are leaving — you have plenty of company. According to LIMRA’s, Compensation, Production, and Retention of Multi-Line Exclusive Agents Study, the four-year retention rate for multiline agents in 2014 was 43 percent. This turnover comes at a cost, both economic and cultural. This book explores a five-step strategy for getting and keeping new advisors on track to build a strong practice from day one, to slow that revolving door and boost retention for the long term. Available in financial services and traditional life and multiline versions.
This eBook identifies how field leaders create a culture of passion and purpose in their agencies and firms, how they communicate that culture to candidates and how they help new advisors discover their own passion for this profession.
