IN's revamped compensation calculator includes BLS city multiplier

After we published our 2013 InvestmentNews/Moss Adams Compensation & Staffing Study, we wanted to provide advisers with easy-to-use, anytime access to the most pressing data the study had to offer. To that aim, in November we launched our Adviser Staffing & Compensation Calculator. Now, we're proud to introduce a revamped version of our flagship benchmarking tool: The National Adviser Compensation Database.

Utilizing data collected from more than 400 firms, the National Adviser Compensation Database allows advisers to benchmark their staffing levels and compensation against some of the biggest and fastest-growing firms in the industry. In addition to filters for firm size, firm type, and professional designations, we have included a geographic market multiplier for the 150 most populous cities in the country. The multiplier, which was developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics through an analysis of compensation, jobs and cost-of-living data from the Census Bureau, can be applied to advisory firm compensation data, providing an added dimension that yields results uniquely tailored to individual advisory firms and their employees.

Try out the National Adviser Compensation Database now.
