Careers with U-Vest™ Financial

As you know, being a financial advisor is a rewarding career.

You help people manage and help to secure their financial futures while doing the same for yourself. But the business challenges can be daunting and tiresome. You want to spend more time with clients, yet focused time is harder to come by.

Do you find yourself:

1.

1.

Managing the paperwork and worry that comes with complicated and ever-changing compliance requirements?

2.

2.

Trying to keep up with technology that seems to change just as you get used to it?

3.

3.

Watching technology fees, accounting expenses and insurance costs — business and personal — diminish your hard-earned compensation?

U-Vest™ Financial is on a mission to grow the company into one of the largest and most experienced financial advising groups in North Florida.

Client Centered

Advisors who join or partner with U-Vest™ Financial maintain control of their client base. We put death/disability agreements in place on day one to be purchased if something happens to you. And should you ever choose to sell your practice, you already have a buyer in U-Vest™ Financial.

We understand one size does not fit all. With that in mind, we offer three business models.


Check them out below!

Our Process


This full-support model is popular with experienced advisers: Everything is taken care of for you. This model includes:

  • Office space
  • E&O insurance coverage
  • Health insurance (includes family), 401(k) with match and profit-sharing, and disability benefits 
  • An assigned, licensed staff member (Series 7, 66, and FL 2-15) to assist with paperwork, orders and processing
  • The earning power of a large team
  • Wide array of managed investment platforms, annuity and life providers
  • Marketing and branding
  • Broker, licensing and technology fees covered by U-Vest™ Financial
Our History


This model works best for advisers who have their own office space and includes all of the above benefits except office space and health, disability and 401(k) benefits. (Even this can be tailored though, depending on the compensation model chosen.)

Our Values


This model is meant for advisors who may not be happy with where they are right now – whether that be due to compensation, lack of ownership in their practice or lack of support – but who want to continue to fully run their own shop. Independent partners:

  • Work directly with Waddell & Reed Inc. but have the support of U-Vest™ Financial so they are not changing firms alone
  • Have their own office space (or rent space in our office) and manage and pay their own expenses
  • Make their own brand, own their practice and have full control

Advisors who join or partner with U-Vest™ Financial maintain control of their client base. Interested? Let's talk.
