The Role of the Advisor
Financial advisors connect to our firm’s vast planning and global investing expertise, in a way that’s unique to each client.
Investing today is tough—there’s no rising tide to lift all boats, so aligning investment goals and processes is more important than ever. That’s what our financial advisors do. And since many clients come to us after liquidity or other life events, you could say we’re really in the business of making money meaningful.
Our advisors also work with clients who are focused on narrower goals, and provide stand-alone services targeted to meet objectives. These Alternatives and Focused Equities offer access to exceptional thematic and opportunistic investment ideas uncovered by our in-depth global research in both public and private markets.
Our Market-Leading Training Program
The firm’s culture is deeply rooted in lifelong learning and never settling for the status quo. Because our hiring profile is unique among our industry peers, we strive to recruit top decile professionals and provide them with best-in-class training. Every new advisor must complete our immersive 13-week training program, which is designed to cover critical areas and provide the knowledge and skills necessary to build a foundation for success.
Fully invested in the success of every advisor
Our new advisor training program is facilitated by portfolio managers, wealth strategists, economists, and senior management to ensure advisors launch from training with key skills and a deep understanding of our unique value proposition.
The ideal candidate
Our most successful advisors have largely oriented their practice around their passions—such as working with entrepreneurs and business owners, nonprofit organizations, professional athletes, global families, artists, and collectors.
