Solutions & Strategies

Our advisors have the direct support of a field representative who is committed to helping them reach their full potential as well as hit specific goals through a number of programs designed for efficiency and growth.

Office Solutions that help your business become more streamlined and profitable. These can range from assistance in hiring qualified staff to providing you with the technologies and software that will help you move toward the efficiencies of a paperless office.

Business Succession Planning that enables you to protect what you’ve worked hard to build, maximize its value, and prepare to leave your business and clients in good hands when the time for transition comes.

Coaching Program designed to help you double your business. Advisor Group’s Coaching offering is a one-year program from the Academy of Preferred Financial Advisors (formerly Million Dollar Producer), that is recognized as one of the industry’s most successful coaching programs for advisors who operate high-level practices. Participants benefit from the special emphasis on client management and a focus on tax, estate and wealth planning techniques that are designed to build lasting fee-based practices.

  • Professional quality brochures, advertising and collateral pieces via the Forefield Marketing Library, which contains over 4,000 pre-approved marketing pieces and is available at no extra charge
  • Free customizable product sponsor materials
  • Subsidized access to high-quality third party materials and newsletters

Team Sales Support

Our Internal Sales Desk, Advanced Sales/Qualified Plans Team, Investment Advisory Services team, Insurance Consulting Services team and Retirement Plan Consulting Services team together provide advisors with comprehensive and consultative sales support across all product lines. Our goal is to offer solution-driven support across the spectrum and through all stages of the client engagement process.

The collaborative nature of our sales teams is central to our ability to effectively support our advisors by identifying opportunities to add value every time we have a conversation with an advisor.

Our sales and education efforts across all product lines are designed to help our advisors, in whatever way possible, deliver quality investment solutions and advice to their clients.
