The Advisor Center is pleased to announced the launch of two online tools designed to help financial advisors grow: Job Connection and GrowthCheck.

Job Connection is a new job board allowing subscribing firms to list open positions for sales assistants, compliance analysts, marketing consultants, receptionists and more. Powering InvestmentNews' job listings, Job Connection empowers applicants to search by position, as well as by firm, instantly viewing opportunities with multiple broker-dealers, RIA custodians, RIAs and branch offices.

In turn, Job Connection presents financial firms with an industry-specific and efficient way to connect as well as target a highly targeted pool of potential job seekers using one centralized platform.

“We want to help the firms in our community present their open positions to the marketplace and to help potential job seekers discover these opportunities,” explains Tom Daley, founder and CEO of The Advisor Center. “Firms will be able to leverage the existing marketplace to fill positions and promote their opportunities, brand and value proposition nationally through a central portal. Our solutions will help bring much-needed efficiency and affordability to the marketplace.”

The Advisor Center also launched GrowthCheck, a complimentary benchmarking tool to help advisors evaluate how well their businesses are positioned for growth with their current affiliations or business models compared to the rest of the industry.

“It's one thing for an advisor to want to grow his or her practice, but do they have the support in place to achieve sustainable growth?” Daley asked. “GrowthCheck is another free, objective resource we offer advisors to help them evaluate if where they are today is aligned with where they want to be tomorrow.”
