As a Financial Solutions Advisor within centralized segment of the Advisor Development Program, your journey begins obtaining your Securities Industry licenses, where you receive dedicated and personalized classes for your Securities Industry Essentials [SIE], Series 7 and Series 66 Exams.

You will then join the centralized team as a Financial Solutions Advisor. The Financial Solutions Advisors on the centralized segment are phone-based licensed advisors (obtaining series 7 and 66 required) that provide clients with holistic financial advice and guidance by identifying broader product and service solutions that meet their investment, savings and liability management solutions. FSAs demonstrate knowledge of investments and financial markets and apply key principles appropriately to the individual client's investment needs. Additionally, they align Merrill and Bank of America products and services where appropriate. We will equip you with everything you need as you move through the stages of development and move into the Merrill Financial Advisor role.
