I graduated in 2014. I have been working as an Insurance Broker in Connecticut since then. Best compensation job at the time so I took it. Coming up on 2 years now & I am ready to make a change. I would love nothing more to change into a career path of Financial Advising or Wealth Management.

I put in 45-70 hours a week depending. I am making decent money but kind of topped out. The brokerage I work for does not pay renewals just new business & I do not mind putting in tons of hours but if I am going to put in that time I want to sell a product with more pop.

I currently have my P&C License and my Life & Health. I have decent selling back ground in the sense I am an insurance broker & cold calling persuasion is the name of the game. I understand I would need my Series 7 & 66 but need to be sponsored.

I just would need suggestions on best route to get into this line of business. How should I proceed(next step)? Any suggestions on which company to aim for to start a career in thsi line of work? Good idea switching from insurance to wealth management?

Any guidance would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Find a firm that does financial planning, money management and insurance so you can make the transition and still do insurance. Try your local FPA group or call some RIAs in your area.

You can always work on a designation or two in the mean time to make yourself more marketable.
