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

Mr Magnificent:

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.
