Changing firms is one of the most important career decisions you will contemplate.  At Compass Advisors we understand this and take our responsibility helping you to transition firms very seriously.


While we expect you will find the services we provide invaluable, they come at absolutely no cost to you.  Each of the client companies we represent has set aside significant recruiting budgets that pay for the cost of our services, and therefore have no bearing on your transition package whatsoever.  In fact, these clients encourage our participation to guarantee them maximum exposure to the widest available pool of quality prospects.


It is you, our client-candidate that drives the Financial Advisor recruiting process forward.  We know that as a solid producer you can secure attractive transition deals to go to a host of competitor firms. Every major wire house, regional and independent is aggressively searching for quality advisors.


At Compass we never have and will never drink the “Kool-Aid” of any one firm.  Others may pretend to be your representative when in reality theirs is a biased agenda, representing just one firm.  To the contrary, we represent you. We have contracts with several of the top firms in this industry.  Additionally, if one of our contracted partner firms does not turn out to be the right fit for you, we will put you in touch with select other recruiting firms we recognize as reputable so you can evaluate alternative opportunities.  At Compass, we promote a truly open-architecture environment.


At the core of our Code of Ethics is confidentiality.  We will never disclose your name to any firm without your permission.  Your name will never go into circulation within the industry, potentially exposing you to your current employer, college or clients.


You will find we have a working philosophy of doing whatever it takes – providing excellent service, building trust, earning respect, getting results and exceeding expectations.
