What we look for in a financial professional

We seek talented people to grow with us, people who possess special attributes that afford them the opportunity to earn the respect and prestige of an AXA Advisors financial professional. The ideal individual will have:

  • Achievement-driven goals
  • A desire to help others
  • A team-oriented focus
  • Motivation to learn
  • High integrity and professionalism
  • Effective communication skills

To qualify, you should have a strong personal history of success. You should be results-driven, possess unequivocal honesty and integrity, and be motivated to helping others achieve financial independence. Having an educational background in law, accounting, banking, brokerage or executive management will be particularly useful and an advanced degree and designation (MBA, JD, CFP®, CPA, ChFC) are definite pluses.

How to Get Started

Before you may execute a Preliminary Employment Agreement and become authorized to offer products and services to clients, you must obtain the FINRA Series 7 registration and a Life, Accident and Health Insurance license. AXA Advisors will sponsor your pursuit of the required FINRA registrations.
Once you’ve obtained the necessary licenses and registration, you will execute a Preliminary Employment Agreement and begin your salaried training phase. You will be provided with time to study for the FINRA Series 63 exam. Our comprehensive training and onboarding program will supply you with valuable information designed to help you jump-start your career. In addition to your training salary, you will be eligible to receive commissions on approved business written during your training period, provided that you are duly registered, licensed, appointed, and approved to offer that product. Best of all, you will have the support of your manager as you navigate through your learning curriculum.
Key training topics that are covered include:
  • Product knowledge
  • Operations
  • Technology
  • Compliance
  • Prospecting
Now you’re ready to get started! Once the required initial training courses are successfully completed, you will move to a dedicated selling phase, in which your manager will work with you to help develop your sales and prospecting skills, incorporating mentoring, role-playing and hands-on experience. During this phase of the Preliminary Employment Program, you will begin to build your practice through marketing and sales visits with clients and prospects.
Once the required training and selling phase of the program has been completed, you are eligible to become a financial professional with AXA Advisors. Joining AXA Advisors with the licenses, registrations, and skills necessary will help you become a knowledgeable first-in-class financial professional.

Your professional growth

At AXA Advisors, training and development is a continuing process in which financial professionals build their business. We have an integrated training strategy that provides comprehensive knowledge and skills to support AXA Advisors’ expansive offering of financial products and investment services. Training combines instructor-led programs, eLearning courses, licensing and certification, field training and mentoring. Plus, you will be personally coached and mentored by an AXA Advisors Vice President committed to each new financial professional’s development. And while getting off to a great start is crucial, helping you to grow with AXA Advisors is something that we are just as committed to. We have something called the “Career Path Tracks.” This progression model is housed electronically so that you can take the initiative to grow professionally and develop as quickly or as slowly as you want. There are several areas for which you can grow including specializing in a specific market or choosing to explore a role in leadership and moving up the ranks as a Branch Vice President, Senior Vice President, or Executive Vice President

How’s that for taking charge of your own future?

AXA Advisors not only values diversity but believes celebrating the uniqueness of our workforce is fundamental to our growth and success.
