Ep #38: Residency Programs in Financial Planning

XY-Planning-Podcast-final

On this episode of #XYPNRadio, we're chatting with a very special guest: financial planner, financial planning mentor, and XY Planning Network member Andrea Eaton of Cornerstone Wealth Advisors.

Cornerstone was founded by Jon Guyton, a financial planning thought leader for his work in retirement planning. Jon has published a lot of research on retirement withdrawal rates and was named one of “15 Transformational Advisors” in 2013.

Cornerstone is the first firm to offer residency programs in financial planning. They provide a three-year residency that is radically different than any other program we're familiar with at XYPN. Advisors are hired for a three-year period, at the end of which they leave and pursue another opportunity, similar to a medical residency.

Residency programs in financial planning may sound unusual, but Andrea shares just how useful and beneficial Cornerstone's program is to the firm itself. After two successful residency completions and third set to finish in the next year, Cornerstone Wealth Advisors has enjoyed plenty of success running their residency program.

Listen in to learn how Cornerstone’s program works and how you can consider integrating a similar model into your firm.
