Team-Sponsored Launch

Our financial advisors serve clients in new markets, creating opportunities for people who share our passion to enable clients to lead lives full of meaning and gratitude. By joining an existing team, you can leverage the diverse skill sets of

experienced financial advisors to serve more clients and accelerate the growth of your business. In this role, support and joint fieldwork opportunities will come directly from experienced financial advisors.

The Team-Sponsored Launch position provides some stability of income and the ability to focus on learning and development rather than production. This model can accommodate candidates seeking their first opportunity, career changers, and professionals currently working in the financial industry, with the goal of joining the team as a financial advisor within three months to three years.

Licensing and Training

Candidates in the Team- Sponsored Launch model will obtain the necessary licenses over the course of eight to 13 weeks (varies due to individual situations).

These licenses include:

  • Resident state Life, Health and Annuity
  • Securities Industry Essentials
  • Series 6/63 or 7/66 (7/63 and 65).

After completing licensing, participants may enroll in a comprehensive training program lasting up to eight weeks.

What you can expect

After licensing and training, you’ll start building your book of business with the ultimate goal of joining the sponsoring team in the traditional financial advisor role within three months to three years. During this period, typical activities include:

Meeting with potential clients to build genuine, long-term relationships based on shared values and goals.

Empowering clients to make knowledgeable financial decisions about education, investments, insurance, and retirement.

Building a strong personal network through local nonprofits, churches, and businesses for future growth.

Developing skills and best practices to be a successful financial advisor.

Desired Characteristics

Our culture and our people are special. We’re looking for people who are – or want to become – part of the communities where clients live, work and worship. Whether you’re a seasoned financial professional or looking for a career change, you could be a successful Thrivent Financial advisor if you’re:

  • Self-disciplined, independent, and driven to succeed.
  • Motivated by helping others and seeing them achieve their goals.
  • A natural coach or guide with strong interpersonal skills.
  • Passionate about living a life of generosity by serving others, not just selling products.

Successful Thrivent Financial advisors have come from a variety of career backgrounds, including outside sales, business management, education, ministry, hospitality, military and more. Skills acquired in these fields transition well into the financial advisor role.

Compensation and Benefits

Team-Sponsored Launch candidates receive stable income through individual and team sales commissions, and incentive pay structures. Candidates will also be eligible for Thrivent’s industry-leading benefits:

  • Medical, dental and vision insurance.
  • Disability, accidental death and dismemberment insurance.
  • 401(k) and pension opportunities.
  • Access to unique tools to engage clients in their community to make a real impact.
