Independent financial advisory organisation, deVere Group, is expanding their graduate programme at the firm’s administrative hub in Malta, and will be followed by further training at one of the deVere academies in Dubai, Malaga, Sydney and New York.
The programme, which the firms says will help secure new talent and fill the future financial adviser gap, will see at least 125 graduates take part in the programme this year, up from 94 in 2017, said deVere Group founder and chief executive, Nigel Green.
Mr Green commented: “We now have advisers who started on the grad programme in every one of our major offices around the world. From Hong Kong to New York, Sydney to Dubai, Cape Town to Geneva, they are there achieving their personal objectives whilst professionally helping our clients fulfil their long-term financial goals.”
“With demand for sound, independent financial advice growing around the world, the baby boomer generation now in or heading into retirement, financial technology advances, and with many existing advisers exiting the industry due to the pressures of increasing regulation and retiring, there is a pressing need for the sector to step-up and to train and recruit the next generation of wealth management professionals to fill the impending adviser group."
