This article will speak about getting a job as a wealth manager or financial advisory firm overseas and the options you have.
This is after many people asked me how to get into international financial services.
If you are looking for new jobs as an advisor and have existing assets under management you can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or use these contact options.
Option One – Get transferred overseas by your current employer
If you are employed by a large bank or financial services company and they have a branch overseas, you might be able to request an internal transfer.
However, opportunities are likely to be limited if you go down this route.
Option Two- Work remotely for your current employer
If option one doesn’t work for you, you can ask your current employer whether or not it is possible to work remotely.
Some employers might be worried about the tax implications of having staff overseas, but some might be able minded.
Some firms, like our own, have staff all around the world, and we don’t have an issue with remote staff within reason and depending on the country in question.
Option Three – Get a salaried job overseas
Especially when you are young, you might want to have the security of a salary. There are plenty of firms that have graduate schemes, and initial salaries.
Option Four – Work fee-only
If you want the chance to earn as much money as possible, but don’t want the stress of starting your own business, you can work fee-only for a company.
The advantage of this is that your fee split might be quite high, due to the fact that you aren’t a big risk for the company because of the lack of salary.
Option 5 – Sell out and start again
If you have a financial services practice in one country, you might want to sell out, and use that capital to start again overseas,
I have bought out financial planners and advisors before, and one reason why some people sell is due to retirement or a move to another country.
