I think the suggestions in this article are solid if you are hiring a junior advisor who will be largely in a support position and on some kind of salary. If you want to attract an experienced advisor who is bringing clients and assets with him/her, the key issue is KNOWING YOUR RECRUITING VALUE PROPOSITION. Advisors may have a value proposition for their clients/prospects but do not take the time to fine tune that and customize it to attact an advisor. Ask yourself the qiestion: Why should he join me? What does this firm have to offer him? Then ask the advisor what is really important to him and determine if you have a match. Good luck!
