Raymond James has multiple programs in place for internal development. There
is an Accelerated Development Program (ADP) which is crafted for recent college
graduates to test out various departments within their desired track. The ADP programs
lists 3 different tracks: (1) finance, (2) Information Technology (3) Marketing.
Another development program for Raymond James is the Advisory Mastery
Program. This is a 19-24 month program for aspiring financial advisors. The program is
split up into 3 phases. The first phase lasts 4-6 months and is focused on the licensing
and exam preparation, exposure to the company culture, and little bit of mentor
shadowing. The second phase, the longest period is for months 7-19. During this phase
AMP contestants are learning about building up a portfolio of clients, developing
business plans, and attending networking events.
This phase focuses on 2 various primary topics: the marketing and sales for
client portfolio building, and the industry knowledge of investment products to offer. The
marketing portion includes knowledge on the introduction process, client referrals, sales
process, prospecting methods and Individual begin crafting a business plan. This is
intertwined with the development of the foundation of advising services and products
which include: insurance concepts, estate planning, retirement planning, learn about
product solutions, During this time, AMP candidates have 3 home office visits and then
they are released into the final phase during the 19-24 months of the program where
they have a customized graduation consisting of additional certifications, conferences to
attend to, and the implementation of building your own team/practice.
We believe these programs provide both strengths and opportunities for
Raymond James regarding recruiting millennial financial advisors. At this point, one of
the biggest weakness at Raymond James is that a large portion of their financial
advisors are ages fifty plus. This along with high replacement costs of employees and
the threat of multiple substitute advising firms has lead us to develop recommendations
that involve the internal development of Raymond James.
Recommendation #1
Implement a Graduate School Ambassador Program
Recommendation #2
Implement a Junior Financial Advisor phase into the AMP program
Recommendation #3
Add a Sourcing Recruiter for Millennial Target Market
Part 2a
Graduate School Ambassador Program
We suggest that Raymond James implements a graduate school ambassador
program at The University of Tampa with a team of individuals who have completed the
ADP program. This recommendation will be addressing the strength and opportunity of
having strong internal programs in order to develop skills and career paths at Raymond
Graduate ambassadors would speak to graduate classes and at the University’s
career fairs about the opportunities Raymond James has to offer, and how the ADP
program developed their skills for the business world. The ambassadors would also
hold Q&A sessions where those who are interested can go and learn more about
Raymond James and the different areas the ADP program has to offer. We think it
would be beneficial because graduate students could hear about the ADP Program and
have a face-to-face interaction with those who have been through the process.
These Ambassadors would come from the ADP Marketing sector. This is
because this portion highlights one of the four key areas of ADP Marketing一
communications. These ambassadors will be working working 5 hours a week; 2 to 3
hours of which is spent recruiting and finding future recruiting opportunities, and 2 hours
devoted to Q&A with interested students.
Junior Financial Advisor Program
Based on conversations with financial advisors who shined a light on the
dynamics of theri team as well as missing aspects within their team we thought it would
be beneficial to add a component to the 3 phase AMP model, creating it into a 4 phase
model. This would extend the keep the program at the same length and would create
slightly different paths and exit strategies as well as split up the 2nd phase.
The second phase would keep all the same stuff however it would not go as heavily into
some of these topics and I would shorten the phase by 2 months. Then the 3rd phase
would be a junior advisor role. For 4-5 months, an AMP candidate would join another
team, he or she would start as a shadow but would be getting hands on experience
under someone else belt and client book. They would be assisting with what each time
finds they need in a junior advisor role – assisting in the admin and client management,
financial investment strategies and join on client prospecting networking events. This
would then roll into phase 4, previously known as phase 3: customized graduate
education. The AMP candidate may either continue on the team he or she is on as a
junior advisor and grow with the team. Or they will branch off into their own business
line creating own team and using the prospects and knowledge gained over the time in
the AMP program and receive any additional destination, the CFP with manager
approval and choose the conference which best aligns to their current needs and onco
Phase 3 junior advisor program…. Go back to the mentor shadow under phase 1
Sourcing Recruiter for Millenial Target Market
Raymond James has a great name brand that they are able to leverage. This is a
great opportunity that the organization is left with that they are able to carry further.
Currently Raymond James’ name benefits them in their on campus presence, they are
seeked out by students when at job and internship fairs, and the name adds credibility
to any financial advisor when speaking of the services and experience they have as well
as the name of the organization that they as an advisor and prospect are tied to. The
most prevalent and urgent weakness that Raymond James finds themselves with is the
demographic of the current financial advisors and the threat of retirement around the
corner. The AMP and ADP programs are great for onboarding and help bring on many
of those new financial advisors and the younger postgraduate generation . An area that
Raymond James could grow in and would reap benefit would be the marketing and
recruiting within the millennials generation.
It would be beneficial for Raymond James to take on a sourcing recruiter onto
their recruitment team. This sourcing recruiter would be focusing on the millennial gap.
This is an opportunity that presents itself with the rise of technology and the social trend
of millenials changing jobs and careers. The sourcing recruiter can take advantage on
linkedin recruiter where they will see when someone is “available to new opportunities”
then the sourcer can step in and message the candidates that seem qualified and
interested based off prior background. Recruiting for this generation makes the most
sense in this approach because you are to as able to reach them through job fairs or
campus presence like with Generation Z.
