The group currently has 190 advisers, following the addition of 24 in the first quarter of 2008, with the ambition to break through the 400 barrier by 2012.
AWD hopes its attractive package, which includes opting for full and variable employment, will see the numbers swell to those heights in that timeframe.
Other benefits include enabling advisers to retain the full benefit of front-end and trail commissions, access to central lead generation and affinity business and a buy-out plan for those wanting to move into the AWD structure.
There is also a three tiered structure set out for those wishing to link with the firm. This includes a self-employed option for high achievers who pull in a commission in excess of £250,000.
Middle to high achievers receive a salary and commissions, while others can go down the full employment route. This status is also reviewed on a yearly basis to allow advisers to progress.
AWD Group Plc national sales and operations director Stephen Kavanagh says: “We only want the very best advisers who are hungry to progress their business. Our new recruitment drive is designed to attract star quality IFAs who deliver top results and deserve an industry-best remuneration and support package in return.
“As part of Europe’s premier advisory group, AWD Holding AG, which has over 464,000 advised customers, 6,000 financial advisers and revenues exceeding €725 million, we can offer IFAs the security of a large company in terms of financial strength but having a small company feel in its relationship with its people and its clients.”
