The rate at which banks are hiring wealth management experts is indicative of this trend. Smaller banks are also becoming increasingly attractive for experienced advisors because the opportunity to build equity is often greater in the small banking market. Larger financial institutions may be able to offer stronger base contracts but have trouble competing with the potentially high payouts that come with regional banks. Visit www.stockcall.com/ to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.

Regional banks do struggle to lure the ultra rich ($25 million plus) clients away from major institutions but those with assets in the $1-$10 million range are often a good fit for regional banks. Until loan volume returns to pre-recession levels, it is likely that the shift to wealth management services will continue for regional banks.
