Wealth management firms invest a lot of time, money, and resources into recruiting, training, and developing new financial advisors. Yet, despite their best efforts it is estimated that only 15% of new financial advisors make it to year five. The high attrition rate comes with an enormous cost to firms and the advisors themselves. What if we could increase the success rate for new financial advisors?
My guest on the latest episode of The Modern Financial Advisor Podcast, Sten Morgan of Legacy Investment Planning shares how he grew his practice from zero to top producer status in under 5 years. And now Sten is on a mission to help other advisors do the same.

Helping new financial advisors reach escape velocity quickly is one of the most important things we can do as an industry. With nearly 40% of existing advisors set to exit the business in the next decade, we can't afford to lose promising advisors just because it takes too long for them to achieve a base level of success. Below are a few additional resources that might be helpful in jumpstarting this effort:
- The Importance of a Target Market for RIAs and Smaller Broker Dealers - One of the most overlooked pieces of the advisor success formula is firm fit. In this episode of the podcast I shared a strategy for developing a firm-wide target market and recruiting financial advisors who are best suited to serve that niche.
- How to Attract Millennial Advisors to Your Wealth Management Firm - It's fair to say that most firms need to focus on recruiting younger advisors. But, attracting young professionals requires a recognition that their expectations of a modern work environment are likely different than what you are currently offering.
- How Financial Advisors and RIAs Can Increase Profitability by Using a Digital Assistant - Let's face it, there's a lot of busy work that financial advisors need to deal with. And it's not uncommon for the junior advisor to get saddled with doing a lot of the grunt work for senior advisors. Freeing up advisors' time from repetitive tasks can allow them to focus on growth.
