Financial Advising & Leadership Program

At Strategies for Wealth, we believe in being part of something bigger than yourself. We are a full-service financial firm founded over 85 years ago, and are seeking a group of highly talented, ambitious, and coachable rising college seniors to take part in our Financial Advising & Leadership Summer Program 2024 from June 10th - August 2nd.

The Financial Advising & Leadership Summer Program is a paid experience (virtual or in-person depending on up to date COVID protocols) where a carefully selected cohort will learn what it’s like to develop a career in financial planning at  a top firm, with over 9 billion in assets  administered, 60 thousand clients, and a 70% 5-year retention rate for financial professionals compared to the industry average of 13%.

Cohort members will also take part in training designed to spur their overall professional and leadership development. Each of the 8 weeks has a specific theme that cohort members will engage in through speakers, individual research, assigned reading/listening materials, and activities designed to strengthen their knowledge of each topic.

The themes are as follows:

The themes are as follows:

The last of the 8 weeks will culminate in a capstone project, where cohort members will take all that they learned over the course of the summer, perform their own research, and craft a presentation on a topic of their choice. This project is designed to highlight the independence, creativity, research skills, and technical knowledge of financial concepts that cohort members have developed over 7 weeks.

 At the end of the summer, program cohort members will be invited to continue taking part in Strategies for Wealth training and other development activities.
