St. Cloud, MN (PRWEB) May 27, 2009
PRIMEVEST Financial Services, a leader among broker-dealers serving financial institutions exclusively, and Human Capital Resources, a nationally known firm specializing in recruiting, employee testing/evaluations, and a wide range of consulting services, are jointly conducting a survey of financial professionals and managers in financial institutions. The survey link, available on both the Human Capital Resources and Bank Investment Consultant websites, is designed to uncover the current attitudes, perceptions and beliefs of financial professionals in the financial institution investment channel.
"In these turbulent times, financial institution-based investment professionals have very specific ideas about what the future may bring," said LeAnn McCool, national sales manager at PRIMEVEST. "We want to understand what they're thinking so that we can better serve their needs."
Paul Werlin, president of Human Capital Resources, has conducted several surveys in the channel and believes that there has never been a more opportune time to survey financial professionals in financial institutions.
"It is so important to really understand what investment representatives and their managers are thinking at this critical time," said Werlin. "We are delighted to be working with PRIMEVEST, so that together we can bring to light the issues, challenges and opportunities investment representatives and managers believe are of critical importance."
McCool added, "We expect to uncover rep and manager sentiments about a wide range of issues including their thoughts about the markets, the financial institution, the products they sell and the support they receive. We hope the insights we gain will help everyone in the industry."
The survey will be available online for financial institution investment representatives and management personnel beginning May 27 and ending June 14. A comprehensive report of the survey results is expected to be published in a future issue of Bank Investment Consultant.
