Quick question is there any upside to obtaining a Series 6 license

Quick answer–no.



If you’re at a place that encourages Series 6 you’re not at a real brokerage firm.



Additionally, most of the insurance companies–who favored Series 6 for
years (because their agents were not smart enough to pass Series 7)
have decided that their people need Series 7 after all.



The only upside is that if you can go to work with a Series 6 then grab it.



Series 6, by the way, is no walk in the park.  It is far more
difficult than Series 7 is in the topics it addresses.  In other
words, you’re going to see some things about funds and insurance
products on a Series 6 that have been deemed to be too difficult for
Series 7.



Do not approach any of these exams lightly–the morons who chime in about how easy they are are not scoring 100%.

Thanks

I actually put up a post not too long ago.

I was wondering if I had a opportunity to work with a indy, should I go for it being a newbie an all. (who's saying get your 6)

Or perhaps go the road of a wirehouse, I have a first interview with Merrill.

What are your thought's?

I wish I had thought of calling myself Mr. Magnificent, it's so much more subtle than "Tripod."

Good luck with Merrill--nothing wrong with starting at the top of the heap if you can get the job.
