There is a growing need for a new generation of insurance and financial professionals, and it is a potentially rewarding career path for many students and professionals exploring mid-career changes.

  • The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects the employment of personal financial advisors to grow 15 percent from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations.
  • Over that time, BLS projects more than 300,000 position openings for personal financial advisors.

Financial education is a growing trend in the United States. Eight U.S. states require students to create financial literacy coursework as a high school graduation requirement, and nine more states have begun implementing similar requirements. NAIFA is a strong advocate for these requirements and urges every state to adopt them. Basic financial literacy not only puts students on a strong financial footing giving them greater opportunity to be financially secure, but it also builds interest among students in pursuing finance as a career.

The NAIFA Future Leaders program consists of four courses. (Each session runs from 12:00 to 12:45 pm eastern. Sessions are also recorded for on-demand viewing)

  • February 2 – Understanding the industry
  • February 9 – Finding Your Best Fit
  • February 16 – Choose Your Own Adventure: Career Options in the Industry
  • February 23 – Tools for Success: Becoming the 1%
