Just started a new gig at a bank program. Besides a few decent sales, can already see that perhaps branch wont be a consistent revenue generator, even with hard work. How long before you start looking for a new position or speak with Manager about possible change of branch.?

I think you should wait 1 month before jumping.....

Yes....jump on the first business day of the next month...that'll show them who's boss!

Are you serious??  3 months and you have already decided that the branch you are in is not any good for production?   The tellers don't even recognize you from the bank patrons yet.  They don't know you. They don't trust you and they sure as hell aren't going to refer their customers to you.  


You need to promote yourself to the mangement, become a buddy to the tellers and more importantly, get out there and introduce yourself to the bank customers.  How about an open house, you sponsor the refreshments, where selected clients are invited to the bank to get to know you and be introduced to the bank investment program. 


Sheesh.  Do you want us to hold your hand too.

I guess it is not a question that merits any response without the facts of your situation.  It would depend on many things (years in business, AUM, your plan B and C, current and future marketing plan, etc.) Sorry for the smart a$s answer..but I'm glad you liked it.

Ive been in biz for 7 years....fully licensed with 24 and 65 to boot.


Dont have a plan b or c yet, wondering how it would look to other employers if i do start looking right away. I used to manage about 40 mill, but left the firm with the aspiration of getting a better deal in my new place. So far doesnt look that way, as I'm only managing about 10 mill, with maybe 5 mill portable or even worth taking.


Thanks

I bet the tellers were pretty damn impressed when they heard that you used to be successful and you carry a couple licenses that don't mean sh*t to them.  Check the ego at the door and you may find some success in the banking centers

"used to manage 40 mil".....Is that what they call it at the Schwab Discount Brokerage Center these days?

No ego to check overhead....Just trying to build a career. I get along well with the staff, and the only reason I mentionmy 65 is b/c focusing on managed money is a target of mine
