Associate Advisor

Schechter is looking for an Associate Advisor to join the team and provide support to other advisors in serving our clients investment management and financial planning needs. This is an ideal role for someone looking to transition into an advisory role without pressure to find new clients. The ideal team member is committed to service – not only to our clients, but also to other team members. Your “we first, not me first” attitude will serve you well here. Are you ok with frequent change? This is a fast-paced role that has lots of moving parts coming at you, and flexibility is the name of the game. Ultimately, we want you to learn the business. This means that you’ll take direction well, and you will be independent enough to want to apply your learning to growing your own client base (down the road) and thriving as an advisor.
