The Wealth Advisor works in collaboration with and support of one or more advisory teams on the behalf of HoyleCohen offering financial guidance and investment strategy expertise to our clients and securing new client relationships.


HoyleCohen exists to serve its clients.  By doing so, our clients are able to thoughtfully work towards  their financial goals.  We do this with passion and purpose and aspire to be: a high performance organization that works as one; motivated, productive, supportive, accountable; continuously learning, improving, innovating; with strong leadership, clear roles/goals, metrics, accountability; and an environment that inspires…passion with purpose.


Wealth Advisors are core members of our client service teams.  As a new member of the team, you would likely support approximately 75 clients, have a role on the financial planning team, research issues and solutions, and prepare and review meeting materials.  You will have an opportunity to learn from seasoned Wealth Advisors and grow your technical expertise through collaboration with our specialized Investment Team. Client relations are paramount; demonstration of excellent listening skills and professionalism is key.  HoyleCohen Advisory Team members are committed to continuous self-improvement and demonstration of HoyleCohen values; we display an eagerness to learn new skills and participate in special projects and tasks.  We are team oriented, proactive, self-motivated, and accountable for our results.

Our offices are open for our clients and staff.  While most of our employees work remotely the majority of the time, the right candidate must live in or be willing to relocate to the local metro area and be able to regularly commute to our San Diego or Santa Monica office for weekly team and client meetings.


Our process is rigorous.  Just as you would want to conduct your due diligence on any investment opportunity, we want all parties to have opportunities to talk to several members of the firm at varying levels, so we can make a mutually beneficial, informed decision.  While we continue to work remotely due to the pandemic, our typical hiring process looks like this:

  • Round 1 Preliminary Phone Interview with HR Manager
  • Behavioral, Cognitive, and/or Case Study-based Assessments
  • Round 2 Phone Interview with Hiring Manager & Department Peer
  • Round 3 Final Phone Interview with Hiring Manager & Senior Partner(s)
  • Conditional verbal offer (subject to criminal background and reference check)
  • Reference Check (3 professional references/1 former manager)
  • Congratulations and welcome to the firm!

We try to move quickly through this process, but we recognize that calendars don’t always align, and it may be challenging to schedule while working remotely.  If at any time you are unsure of where you stand in the process, please reach out to Stacy Love, HR Manager.
