  • Overview

    Commonwealth Financial Network® is the largest privately held Registered Investment Adviser–independent broker/dealer in the U.S., with offices in Waltham, Massachusetts, and San Diego, California. Since 1979, we’ve been helping our field force of independent financial professionals help investors pursue their financial goals. We do that by providing them with the technology, research, resources, and support that allow them to keep their focus on what’s most important: investors and their financial objectives.

     

    With that said, we are not your typical financial services firm. For starters, we’re a fast-growing company, and we think and have fun like a start-up. Conveniently located on the commuter rail near the intersection of I-95 and the Mass Pike, we’re accessible from anywhere—and away from the congestion of a downtown commute.

     

    Commonwealth recognizes that our people are our greatest asset by investing in training and professional development. As a result, Commonwealth has been recognized 40 times (and counting) as one of the Best Places to Work by top publications in the region (Boston Globe, Boston Business Journal, San Diego Business Journal, San Diego Union-Tribune), as well as in the IT industry (Computerworld). With high marks in areas such as work environment, work/life balance, job satisfaction, and opportunities for advancement, Commonwealth is a place where you can thrive.

    About the Opportunity

    The Annuity Research department works with variable, fixed, and fixed-indexed annuities. We are a small shop, with just five members on our team. Our days are spent assisting advisors with case planning, product inquiries, and sales ideas. After carefully studying each case and evaluating any possible annuity solutions, our goal is to make strong recommendations that place the clients’ needs first.
     
    Are you a self-starter with excellent time management, customer service, and communication skills? Do you have a few years of experience supporting annuity products under your belt, along with your FINRA Series 6 or 7 securities registration? As an annuity product consultant, you would be responsible for supporting our variable, fixed, and fixed-indexed annuity business—specifically, our educational and marketing efforts.
     
    If you think you have what it takes—and are a natural at providing indispensable service—then let’s introduce ourselves.

    Responsibilities

    • Supporting our financial advisors on product-related questions and assisting with product recommendations as necessary
    • Supporting our internal departments on annuity-related inquiries and issues
    • Working closely with our partner insurance companies to educate Commonwealth advisors internally through our website
