    What does an average day look like?

    Where is your location?
    thanks
    Essentially its all about finding and prospecting clients.

    But, there's also learning on the job which is invaluable and you're always working towards the end goal of becoming a wealth adviser.

    I'm in SE Asia.

    I notice from their website that the average client has $125,000 invested.

    Hi. I'm interested in working there. As a fianncial advisor myself with no salary, I think there's massive opportunity here. What I'd like to know is, where do the clients come from? Is it cold-calling? Are leads provided? Where are the customers? Are they all in Dubai, or do we call all over the world? And is there a way to source Dubai telephone numbers? Where do you get them?

    It depends on where you base yourself.

    You can only deal with clients in the country that you're living and working in, with some countries dealing with more than one location as there's not an office in every country.

    You source your own leads; how you do that is entirely up to you, but if you haven't got any leads, then you're not earning any money. Can't talk specifics about Dubai as I've never worked there, but any more questions, I am happy to field them.

    Basic Wage is €1100 per month, I worked there for 1 year. Of the 58 people that joined around the same time as me there were only 2 left at the company worldwide when I left after one year. Revolving door. Good stepping stone to something else if you can handle crap for 6 months

    What was your experience? Why the high turnover?

    Still considering applying, your advice would be appreciated

    Having worked there I would stay well away. If you are considering a serious career in finance, or simply don't want to tarnish your CV then deVere isn't the place. I met some great people there, colleagues who have now moved on, however the management is poor, a high proportion of the expense if burdened by you, the product offering is high fee, depleting investment performance and much of the time low risk investors are offered high risk products. The advisers in the majority are not qualified or in some cases the company doesn't have the licence. Overall though, the biggest thing was a complete lack of care towards clients and the offering. There is a culture of commission over care when it comes to clients, and then the client picks up the pieces.
