Estate planners are one of many quickly growing careers in finance. If you are looking for both a lucrative and personalized career in financial advising, this may be the perfect time to invest in a college program in estate planning or financial management!
Estate planning is one of many fast-growing careers in finance and financial management services. Estate planners meet individually with clients and recommend financial and investment advice to help them manage their wealth.
Needless to say, managing other people's money has its perks. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, The median annual wage of personal financial advisors was $64,750 in May 2010. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $32,660, and the top 10 percent earned more than $166,400.
Moreover, demand for estate planners and personal financial advisors is expected to rise faster than average over the next decade.
A bachelor's degree in accounting, finance,
economics, business, mathematics, or law provides good preparation for a career in finance or financial management. And a college program that covers
investments, taxes, estate planning, and risk management will give you an edge in entering the field.
So what are you waiting for? A college program in finance or financial management could be your ticket to this lucrative profession in estate planning!
