Lead Financial Planner (LFP)

Lead Financial Planner in Huntington Beach, CA (Posted 01/23/20)

We are looking for a Lead Financial Planner (LFP) to join us in our beautiful Huntington Beach, CA office. As our Lead Financial Planner, you will have an opportunity to build an amazing career as you practice financial planning at a top firm with a great team. You will lead client relationships, provide deep-dive comprehensive financial planning services, guide and train newer planners, and contribute to the strategic direction and growth of our firm.

That’s the high-level description, but you probably want to hear more about the details:

Read More


How to succeed:
A successful LFP at Inspired Financial will…

  • Lead client relationships so that you know the client as well as your best friend. You will manage every facet of their financial plan, anticipate their needs, recommend solutions and ensure they’re implemented. You’re part of a team who will help with implementation.
  • Communicate clearly and regularly with our clients and the team. No one will ever ponder the status of projects or requests because you’ve proactively contacted the client with updates and all the details are captured in Salesforce (our CRM system; bonus points if you can do simple coding in Salesforce!).
  • Collaborate closely with our clients’ other professional advisors. Their tax preparers and estate attorneys love you because you help them look good with the client since everyone knows the plan (you created/shared it, after all) and you’re keeping track of the details.
  • Lead and close prospective client meetings. We specialize in serving women in transition and your profound compassion for their situation, superlative communication skills, and deep technical knowledge make you an ace at securing new business.
  • Develop and train associate planners and client services staff for growth and advancement. We have a terrific team and you’re active in helping us all up our game. You also seek input from your colleagues to learn how you can do the same.

How to excel:
You want to be the best LFP we have ever had? Here’s how:

  • You are hungry for knowledge and growth. You are a lifelong learner and seek to improve your technical, interpersonal, leadership, and strategic thinking skills always. Bonus points if you’re a tax nerd and want to advance your education in this important area of financial planning.
  • You make stuff happen and you see how to make things better. In fact, you’re probably already thinking of a creative way to set yourself apart and get this job.
  • You love public speaking and writing. You get jazzed just thinking about sharing your knowledge in a funny, inviting manner. Whether it’s in a presentation or a blog, you’re ready to go!
  • Business development is not a four-letter word to you. You’re excited to build professional and community relationships that are meaningful to you and as appropriate, you’re proud to tell your colleagues about the great work you/we do at Inspired Financial.
  • You want to not just contribute to but lead the long-term growth and success of Inspired Financial. You’ve memorized our financial planner career path and know that on that path, equity ownership may be part of your future.

Must haves:
You must have B.A. or B.S. degree from accredited four-year university, your CFP® designation, and have at least three years client-facing work experience in a financial planning firm. If you’ve been in the business for at least three years, you likely have strong communication skills, are very organized with acute attention to detail, and are genuinely caring by nature. But we’ll mention that they’re very important, too, just in case.
