Financial advisory firm’s can be a stand-alone business
or it can be 1 department of an IR media communications firm
For some reason it is prevalent for many to erroneously assume that advisors work for free. They do not. Advisors and “bird-dog” brokers are also not the same thing. Not even close.

3 nation-wide components of FA staff compensation are;
Individual entry-level annual BASE SALARY from $50K + BONUSES median of 50% over salary + EQUITY participation in advisory firm. Senior management positions can get triple the base salary amount.
