Financial Planning Associate Job Description

Rockwood Wealth Management is an established financial advisory firm serving clientele from our office in New Hope, PA in beautiful Bucks County. We are in the family wealth management business focusing on high-net worth clients, families, and business owners. Through a planning process built on integrity, expertise, and attention to every last detail, we navigate our clients through every phase of financial planning and discretionary investment management.  We have been serving this area and regional niche for more than 15 years and have a constantly evolving succession plan in place to ensure that we’ll be here 40+ years from now.

This is a unique opportunity unlike most in the financial services industry. First, our firm is completely independent…there is no broker dealer affiliation. Therefore, as fiduciaries, our loyalty belongs exclusively to our clients. We do not practice market timing, we are not a product-centric firm and we absolutely do not have a sales culture. We focus equally on our clients’ comprehensive financial planning deliverables and investment management.

Second, we offer a competitive compensation structure and an equity ownership track for employees who demonstrate hard work and leadership characteristics while supporting the long-term goals of our firm. You will be a member of a collaborative and supportive team of high-performing colleagues all working hard to help us grow a successful and multigenerational business. At Rockwood, you won’t be stuck building your own book…all clients are clients of the entire firm; this is not an eat-what-you-kill position…we’re not that kind of firm.

The right candidate for this position is going to be equally comfortable generating an ultra-detailed financial plan and engineering and allocating a household portfolio across multiple accounts of different tax types…and then expertly communicating both to the client in a way the client enjoys the process.

If you are an aspiring wealth advisor (not a product sales person) we encourage you to contact us to determine if you might be the right fit for our firm.

Here is an overview of what you would get to do and the problems you would be challenged to solve if you joined our team:
