I am wanting some feedback on the possibility of joining a solo advisor
who is indy through lpl. He has built his book to about 50 AUM in 3 years.
He is younger 30's and is possibly looking to start adding to his practice.
I on the other hand, am fresh out of college. I have been interviewing with
all the major wirehouses in a bigger city, and have turned down a few
offers to join a few teams. (reason-Not a good fit for me)
This would be in my hometown (population: 100,000) There are not many
brokerages. (1 SB, 1 AG, 4 EJ) He has done a great job so far.
I was not even thinking of going indy right now, but after meeting with
him, I have started to think of the pros and cons of it, because I was really
impressed with him and his outfit.
My other potential options are to get on in some type of support role at a
wirehouse and move into an advisor role in a few years.
