Established in 1999, Pioneer Financial Group is an independent financial services firm specializing in financial education and customized planning strategies.  To maintain our independence, we have chosen Securian Financial Services as our broker dealer and registered investment advisor.  This unique relationship positions us well to serve both our clients and our advisors.  Contact us directly to learn more about the local opportunities here in RI and in our Windsor, CT locations.

Qualified financial advisors are in high demand as baby boomers struggle with determining the best income, investment, and risk management strategies.  Many are looking for direction and want to be sure they are going to be ‘OK.’  Pioneer Financial Group is seeking an advisor that has experience in working with these individuals along with a proven track record of success in the industry.   We specialize in programs that are geared toward first educating the client and then providing them with a process of developing a sound financial plan.  A client’s implementation of the financial plan is a separate process and is handled outside the scope of the plan.  As an independent firm, we are able to offer clients quality products that best fit their needs.  If you have the experience and skills to provide these services and can use improvement in how you market to these folks, then we should meet.

Our ideal candidate will be an individual who truly embraces financial services through a Fee-based Planning approach.   A bachelor degree is required and preference will be given to those candidates that have shown a willingness to continue their education in the industry through the pursuit of additional certifications. (i.e. CFP®, ChFC®, CLU® etc.)  A personalized financial transition package is available.  We offer full subsidized benefits including medical, dental, group life, group disability, errors & omissions coverage, 401k, deferred compensation, and long term care insurance.
