Through a career in one of our branch offices across the country or at our corporate headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota, you can use your passion for your chosen field to make a meaningful difference. A finance, business or economics degree should be sufficient in most cases at the entry level, but an MBA is highly recommended. With an MBA, you can directly join at a higher level and would probably be assigned a more affluent client base than otherwise. In all honestly though, that advice holds true for any banking career, but it is what it is. You can just decide to quit financial services and service your high networth individual clients in some other industry. An official wealth manager can make $100K – $200K, plus the average bonus rate of 30 – 60% of the fixed salary component.
