We provide classroom, online and one-on-one training to help your advisors implement best practices in client wealth management. We train advisors in efficient technology usage to help them win - the referral, the sale, the relationship. 

We use our online Training Center to allow financial advisors and sales assistants to improve their sales and administrative knowledge and skills without losing time out of the office. This professional development training program consists of 15 live and interactive webinars and 38 recorded “on-demand” modules that range in length from 4-30 minutes. The program materials address both hard and soft skills to help financial professionals to better understand their clients’ needs, to empathize with clients about their goals and dreams, and to handle the administrative aspects of their jobs efficiently and effectively. Webinars, which are repeated frequently, are also archived for those who are unable to attend the live presentations.

Wealth Management Training

CFS has developed a model for "Scalable Wealth Management" to address the variable needs of customers depending on the level and frequency of personalized service needed. The model addresses the need to efficiently utilize personnel resources by delivering the level of service appropriate to the customers' needs. The model reflects customer needs based on asset size and complexity of management needed, as well as their objectives, and level of personalized service desired and required. We'll train your investment professionals in this model and our staff will help keep everyone on track.

Our regular training sessions are also excellent learning opportunities not only because of the content, but also because of the emphasis on networking and sharing of best practices amongst top producing financial advisors. Learn from your peers who have been there before, and see how CFS helped them reach smart solutions.
