Established Appleton-based financial planning and advisory firm is seeking to add an experienced advisor to our team.   Our firm, established in the early 80’s, serves families and individuals throughout the greater Appleton/Green Bay/Oshkosh area with fee-based comprehensive financial planning, portfolio management, workplace retirement plans and some limited direct-held/insurance services.  Our independent Registered Investment Advisory practice coupled with our affiliation with a regional independent broker/dealer allows us flexibility to address varied financial service needs.

Our ideal candidate would have 5+ years of client-facing financial services experience with a track record of progressively increasing responsibilities, accounts and asset levels. The ability to work at a fiduciary level with families of all income and asset levels is essential, as is your experience in providing common sense, understandable financial advice and education.   Required minimally is a Series 65 license and some type of advanced designation (CFP®, CFA®, ChFC®, etc).  Series 6 or 7, and Life/Health Insurance licenses also helpful.  1/3 of your time would be spent supporting firm clients, planning and projects with 2/3 of your time developing your base of clients and families.  Our firm has the capacity to support your current clients, ensuring they “remain yours” while also helping our firm (and your career) to grow.    This would be an ideal position for an experienced advisor with a book of business that is looking to become independent, but be backed by structure and internal support from an experienced RIA firm.  Experienced late-career advisors looking to transition out within the next 2-10 years and ensure their clients are supported are also encouraged to talk with us.

We offer a base salary corresponding to the level of firm work; understandable revenue sharing and firm-wide bonus schedules; and a career track that can lead to equity and succession participation in the firm.  We also offer a professional yet fun office environment, the technology, tools, and marketing support to grow business, and a slate of employee benefits. 

Please submit a resume to Chad Nehring, CFP® at cnehring@conceptualadvisors.com.   Please include the best times and contact information to communicate with you. All information is held in confidence.


Looking to partner with a progressive financial planning and investment advisory practice? We are always interested in talking to motivated individuals that share our mission and core values.
