Investment/Banking Careers in Toronto
I'm new here and thought I'd ask around for some career advice.
Basically, I work for RBC as a Banking Advisor and have been interested in going into the Wealth Management side of the business, and eventually become an Investment Advisor where I'll have my own client base. I know, I know, it is strictly sales and I wont be doing any sort of analysis or real portfolio management, but that is fine with me as I consider myself to be extroverted with the right personality for a career in sales.
So, I was wondering if people in the same, or similar industry, could help lay out a typical career path that would set me up for success for what I want to do.
What are typical salaries in the Wealth Management industry? How much can IA's expect to make after 3-5 years, assuming they last and don't wash up.
If there are any other careers that are similar, I'd love to know about them and what they do/how much they make. Apparently bank Mortgage Specialists make a KILLING.
Anyway, I'm curious to see what you guys have to say, and any potential advice that is valuable to me, going forward.
