A growing fee-only Registered Investment Advisor firm located in New Kent, Virginia, is seeking an experienced Financial Advisor to assist in our mission of helping people align their finances and investments with their values.
The Financial Advisor will be an integral part of a team providing comprehensive, value-based financial advisory services to our clients. The Financial Advisor will also provide financial literacy education to our community. The position will be hybrid, with one or two days of in-office days per week. The position will service existing “house” accounts as well as any new prospective clients in the Richmond/Williamsburg region.
Our firm believes in a full service, team-based approach. Certain team members are stronger on the financial planning side of the relationship, while others are better suited for the investment management side. While successful advisors will understand both disciplines and have responsibilities across each one, we are looking to hire talented, hard-working individuals and allowing them to fill the slot they enjoy the most.
