We have found that advisors who start their career the “right way” are happier and can focus on meeting their clients needs without the financial pressure typically associated with being full time immediately. The pressure of traditional career paths have led to high attrition rates for financial advisors. This can have a negative impact on client relationships and ultimately reflects poorly on our industry. Become a financial advisor with Parsonex and enjoy the journey of growing your business.
A Professional Financial Services Practice
We believe that customer service is the key to developing excellent long term relationships with clients. It is therefore critical that advisors build a business that allows them to profitably provide this excellent service to their clients. Traditional business models don’t support this effectively. Rather than focusing on sales, we believe in taking the long view. We train representatives to focus on building client relationships and focusing on service.
At Parsonex, we teach advisors to build a business using a long term service model rather than a traditional sales model. In order become a financial advisor and do this effectively advisors must:
- Build Residual Income – advisory fees and trail commissions incentivize long term relationships, service excellence. This also helps you build a stronger business foundation.
- Service a limited number of clients – by limiting the number of clients you serve you can build stronger relationships and provide better service.
The Parsonex system is designed to help advisors effectively do both of these! By starting part-time, advisors can focus on the long term and build a consistent income. This, in turn, can help you not only become a financial advisor part-time, but transition in the future if you choose to do so. Parsonex advisors choose how many clients they want to work with. You can scale your business as you choose and build around your lifestyle. As you gain experience, you may choose to mentor other advisors in our system. This mentorship program, where more experienced advisors help those less experienced, is part of the Parsonex culture.

A Comprehensive Training & Development Program
Our Advisor Development Program allows individuals who are new to the industry to learn the business at their own pace while equipping them with the tools necessary to become professional financial advisors.

There are three important development areas when you are getting started with Parsonex:
Licensing & Registration
We operate in a highly regulated industry and new advisors are required to obtain various insurance and securities industry licenses. See “Required Commitment” for costs associated with this process.
Experienced financial advisors will work with you to help you start building a client base, earning an income and building your business. This mentorship program gives you an edge by providing you real and practical experience that gets you on the path to long term success.
While licensing provides you the core knowledge and field training the hands on experience, there is much to learn as you become a professional financial advisor. Consistent training programs and personal coaching provide you the essential skills you need to be successful. The process is ongoing and our network of financial advisors share best practices to keep everyone up to date on industry developments and what’s working. In addition to the training program, our financial advisors have a clear development path that helps them advance their career and achieve their goals.
