I am in a training program at a major wire house. After crunching numbers vs. hurdles and reading throughout this forum I have a few observations.Even if you have a solid network as I do, its more about "when" and not "if" you can close some of that business. I believe given 5 yrs, you will see a good % of it, but you dont get 5 yrs. So you must cold call to find that % of people willing to do business today. My concerns are:1. The Muni mkt is half dead. People ive known who have bought nothing but muni's their entire life are in cash or not rolling. So that pitch is definetly not what it used to be.2. Even if you closed a 100k anuitized account a week, youd techincally be on unemployment by month 9. And 250k a week anuitized barelly cuts it considering there is a lag in the pc's hitting.So that leaves A shares, Anuities and large anuitized accounts to save your butt, unless Daddy is handing you accts.Questions:Whats is a good cold call pitch, to a qualified investor, to get a whack at his entire 500k account? Because him sending you checks to buy 1000 shares of xyz wont help much like it did in 1987.NFG-Hello Mr Smith, this is Bud Fox calling from jackson securities. How are you today?Mr Smith- Fine. How can I help you today?NFG-?
