The following are specific areas where we foster development: Market Development The agency drives a strong presence in a variety of markets including small business markets, special needs planning, executive benefits, and retirement planning. Our strategic alliances with CPAs, attorneys, P&C agencies, and related organizations enhance our foothold in these markets. New Skill Set High quality training and development for all advisors is of paramount importance to Commonwealth Financial Group. We focus on teaching new and enhanced skillsets that align with the specific advisor's goals and practice. This includes training on small businesses, efficiency planning and large case development. Additionally, we utilize external training programs from Sandler, The Pacific Institute, and the American College, including designation courses in Chartered Special Needs Consultants (ChSNC) and Certified Family Business Specialists (CFBS). Sales Process The Commonwealth Financial Group sales process centers around macroeconomic efficiency-based planning. Unlike a transactional model or the traditional needs-based approach, our planning process positions our advisors as the primary financial advice giver. In addition to providing a fee-based platform, our process uncovers unique strategies and opportunities that are often overlooked by other advisors. Practice Management The Practice Management Team's goal is to assist advisors in running their practice as efficiently as possible. Practice Management focuses on effective team and resource management, such as assistants and para-planners, as well as managing the correct activities in your business.
