Employment Opportunities


Welcome

FinTrust Investment Advisors has one mission:
“To deliver financial peace-of-mind with unequaled confidence and conviction.”

The execution of that mission requires that we have the right people, the right platform, the right processes and the right procedures. We value professionals who have a depth of knowledge, who believe in operating with integrity, and who act with a sense of stewardship for the client, their families, and their communities. FinTrust provides high quality advisors with an open, multi-custodial platform and a highly specialized support team to assist in scaling the advisor’s business and executing comprehensive solutions for their clients. FinTrust is an independent and branded firm with collaborative marketing, credentialed professionals, including those with CPA, CFA, CFP and AIF designations, and an integrated operational team. FinTrust’s offering allows advisors to separate themselves from the competition of both smaller independent practices and larger wirehouse firms.

FinTrust Investment Advisors is a boutique investment advisory firm built by advisors for advisors and their clients.

Fiduciary and Investment Advisory services include wealth management, retirement and financial planning, investment management, financial management/insurance/risk mitigation, corporate retirement plan, non-profit and fiduciary consulting through FinTrust Investment Advisory Services (RIA).

Brokerage and Capital Markets services include fundamental equity research coverage, capital introduction, quantitative equity and credit research, cash equity trading, fixed income portfolio optimization, corporate buybacks, cash foreign exchange, physical metals and securities lending through FinTrust Brokerage Services (Broker Dealer).

If you and your clients are looking for more infrastructure, less big corporate intrusion, and a more boutique financial services firm culture, then FinTrust may be a fit for your business. We would welcome the opportunity to listen and introduce FinTrust.

We then aggregate client data into a single accounting, client relationship management platform, and workflow system for seamless client delivery.

Technology

Best in class technology, a knowledgeable team, and integration of processes are core components of the FinTrust offering. You will find flexibility and scale become the center pieces for your ability to manage your practice and client relationships.

AdvisorView & Client Reporting

AdvisorView is your central point of interaction with your book of business, helping you navigate the applications you use to manage your client relationships and build new relationships. AdvisorView, when combined with By All Accounts, allows you and your client to share a secured vault and view a client’s assets regardless of custodian. From Performance Reporting to Tax Reporting, AdvisorView manages client reporting, and integrates all of your reporting needs with our financial planning software. Client portals and AdvisorViews can be customized and shared.

Wealth Solutions
Affluent clients expect more from their advisors. We can help you deliver.

As a firm founded by advisors for advisors and their clients, FinTrust maintains an extensive professional network, so we can help advisors compete effectively for high-net-worth clients by crafting unique, well planned, customized solutions to complex issues, including:

  • Handling the impact of significant wealth events (sale of a family business, corporate finance, retirement with significant assets, an inheritance, etc.)
  • Complex legacy planning and charitable giving design
  • Dealing with and hedging the risk associated with concentrated equity positions
  • Developing customized portfolios incorporating tax planning or sophisticated investment strategies
  • Seeking maximum returns on large cash portfolios
  • Tax minimization strategies
  • Asset protection strategies
  • Exit strategies for business owners
  • Use of trusts for estate planning

Practice Management

Your time is invaluable. We can help you use yours most effectively.

We know how valuable your time is, so FinTrust Investment Advisors has built an infrastructure of practice management support to ensure that you’re free to focus on the business of serving your clients and running a successful practice. From completely customized marketing and advertising campaigns to truly collaborative compliance oversight, we’ve got you covered.

Branch services

From helping you grow your practice by providing the resources you need to recruit high-caliber professionals to helping you streamline operations, manage administrative issues and even make trades while you’re out of the office, you’ll have a team of licensed professionals at your service.

Compliance Partners

Our compliance team helps you define what you can do instead of telling you what you can’t, and they’ll help ensure applicable FINRA, SEC, state regulations and internal policies are followed. We also provide compliance-approved continuing education courses that meet FINRA’s “Firm Element” requirement.

Two things you won’t find at any other firm – the freedom to create your own service model and the team to help you build it.

Marketing

One of the biggest challenges facing advisors today is separating yourself from the competition. At FinTrust we have taken the initiative to embrace social media with a dedicated marketing coordinator to assist advisors in implementation and supporting client contact, whether it be birthday cards, e-blast, or market commentary, FinTrust will help meet your communication needs. In addition we have ongoing lead generation to help you grow your client base.

Social Media

If you’re ready to incorporate social media into your practice, you’ll have full, compliant access to social media tools including LinkedIn and Twitter as well as tools to measure engagement. You can create your own posts or pull from a library of pre-approved content using Forefield. Learn more about what we can build together at www.fintrustadvisors.com

Infrastructure

Clients age and are concerned with their own legacy planning and want to be assured advisors are surrounded with the support of multi-professional team members to assist them and their families as their needs change. FinTrust will provide that level of confidence your clients want in knowing that you have the ability to meet the need of transitioning the financial responsibilities to other family members as the need arises.
