Financial Services Brokers
The U.S. Department of Labor (USDL) predicts that job opportunities for financial services brokers are expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2020 because of continued interest in the stock market and the increasing number and variety of financial products. Rising personal incomes and greater inherited wealth are increasing the amount of funds people are able to invest. Many people dabble in investing via their personal computers and the Internet. Even those with limited means have the option of investing through a variety of methods such as investment clubs, mutual funds, and monthly payment plans. In addition, the expansion of business activities and new technological breakthroughs will create increased demand for the sale of stock to meet capital requirements for companies around the world.
