Anchor Bay Capital, Inc., an established independent Registered Investment Advisory firm, registered with the SEC located in Carlsbad, California, is seeking an exceptional, customer-focused individual to join our growing firm. We are expanding our client service model and are looking for a highly qualified financial planning professional to provide financial planning services for our clients.
WHO WE ARE
Our practice prides itself in providing clients with focused and well-reasoned long-term financial guidance. Our typical clients are looking to meet their long-term goals (e.g., retirement in 5 years, buying a home, etc.) and are not simply looking to “beat the market”. Started over 27 years ago, the firm has deep roots in its local community and a well-established referral network. We currently have 7 team members.
The firm’s business plan is built around a Comprehensive Wealth Management approach offering such services as investment management, estate planning, risk management, tax planning, retirement planning, 338 fiduciary investment management, and succession planning.
Since our inception in 1992, we have managed the firm with the long term in mind; we invest in our business and in our people. We work hard to maintain a culture that rewards teamwork. We have combined winning people, innovative technology and a value investment philosophy to deliver custom tailored financial planning and investment management services to our clients. We value fresh thinkers who wish to contribute in a collaborative, energized environment.
Founder Scott Spiering has been in the money management business since 1987 and is nationally recognized. He has authored two distinguished finance books: The Frugal Investor, and subsequently a more current version with the same title. Scott has also been featured in the media: Wall Street Journal, CNBC, CNNfn, CBS MarketWatch, and numerous television stations.
“In today’s marketplace, high net worth investors have endless options of where to put their money. These individuals are searching for a well-respected firm, outstanding market performance with low risk, superior client service and low fees. Anchor Bay Capital, Inc. is that firm. We have a reputation of excellence, providing innovative and customized financial solutions to meet the needs of our clients.”
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
The ideal candidate for this opportunity has an established client base with a minimum of $20-$25 million in transferable assets and a desire to live and work in North San Diego County, California. This professional must be extremely client-centered in order to help families build wealth and achieve their financial goals. While this professional must be committed to this vision, they must also recognize the importance of work-life balance and must be able to look beyond spreadsheets and graphs and appreciate the importance of human capital. They must be committed to the growth of their practices and share our vision of a firm with $500m of assets under management.
Our vision is that after a 6-month trial period, the successful candidate would use his/her book of business to buy into and acquire a percentage of ownership of the practice, and then, after 3 to 5 years, acquire, either individually or with some of the practice’s other team members, the remaining ownership. Please note that this practice is not interested in being acquired by a larger firm or selling its assets. It is looking for a long-term successor that shares its vision and goals.
The ideal candidate is a Certified Financial Planner who can fully appreciate our truly unique offer. Our objective is to provide a congenial work environment in which professionals may freely exchange ideas and realize their full potential.
