Wells Fargo Targeting Wealthier Investors

Wells Fargo has come up their latest targeting strategy, and it is quite interesting and tempting. The plan includes the compensation packages for the investors’ advisors. This plan is intended as an encouragement to the advisors and brokers for targeting the wealthier clients.

As from the year 2018, the advisors are going to earn a large and handsome share on their performance hurdle. With the new Client Segment Grid now the advisors and the brokers have the opportunity to enhance their initial performance bonus. The new Client Segment Grid allows the advisors to earn up to 50 percent on the hurdle performance. Initially, it was at 22 percent, but now with the increased compensation, the advisors have the chance to get the maximum return on the following three hurdles: $11,500, $12,500 and $13,250. According to the plan, the advisors will get over hurdle amount 50 percent revenue.

But as far as the payment is concerned, it is mandatory for the advice to have at least 75 percent of households in its book with a minimum balance of $250000 as assets. Not only is this but also there is a threshold point of $ 2 million for each broker in revenue category. The revenue should exceed this limit within 12 months for them to qualify for the new Client Segment Grid. Moreover, there is mandatory participation in the one on one training program DELTA for a month.

There is a well-defined strategy for the group of advisors as well.  Each advisor is asked to have at least $ 800000 earning his own with the sharing of 90 percent of revenue earned from the deals. Moreover, to discourage any forgery or fraud, the teams are required to be together in business for six months at least.

Furthermore, if you are an advisor and you are not working well as a team to get the stipulated 50 percent of the revenue even then there is no need to worry at all. There are various other packages available to compensate the efficient performers. Even if your team can only qualify for the 22 percent return if you perform well, then you would be able to qualify for the Premium Plus hurdle (11500). In this compensation, you will not only get the $5000 but also get to pay the smaller percentage of the revenue brought by the team as a whole.

Well, everything seems to be changing its position with the new Client Segment Grid, but there is one thing which is unchanged, and that is the hurdles offer by Wells Fargo and also the payout rate.

The new Client Segment Grid plan of Well Fargo is going to affect more than 14,564 of its advisors, who have $500000 under asset management along with 75 percent clients in their books. Now the advisors can earn up to 3-4 percent of the compensation on the profit of $400000 to $3.09 million.

However, for those advisors with a profit of more than $3.09 million then compensation goes up high to $200000.
