In this fourth and final episode in the millennial financial advisors series, we discuss an area that was not addressed with our previous guests.
The other guests were all running their own independent RIAs and generally targeting other young professionals with non-traditional business and pricing models. See the three earlier episodes with Brittney Castro, James Osborne and Alan Moore.
But what about millennial financial advisors who are pursuing a traditional career within a well-established RIA? What’s their story? How are the established RIAs finding, managing, and retaining talented millennial financial advisors in their business?
To find out, I dialed up my friends at United Capital, one of the country’s largest RIAs, and had a great conversation with Jarrod Upton and Brandon Moss. Jarrod and Brandon are two of the firm’s leaders and they work with their young, up and coming millennial financial advisors.

On Hiring Millennial Financial Advisors From Jarrod Upton
When bringing on a millennial individual, the key areas they want to focus on are: 1) really understanding who you are, 2) understanding your culture, 3) having very clear, defined goals and expectations, 4) getting hands-on experience early on to boost their confidence, 5) believing in what you’re doing, and 6) having a defined career path.
