Career Advancement

Per the 2019 AFP Compensation Survey:

While there are several organizational factors that help determine financial professionals' salaries (industry, size, revenue, location), additional factors also play roles in career advancement. The results of the 2019 AFP Compensation Survey suggest it is worth a financial professional's investment to earn a professional certification or higher degree, since holding those certifications or degrees tends to lead to higher incomes and upward mobility. Additionally, many financial professionals lack some of the non-analytical, but still highly desired, business skills. They may want to seek the support of their organizations' senior management and Human Resource leaders for training and mentorship in these competencies which will benefit both themselves and their organizations and competencies.

According to 2019 AFP Compensation Survey various factors influence a financial professional's potential for promotion. The most-often cited criterion for upward mobility is increased job responsibility (cited by 86 percent of respondents). Other factors impacting career advancement include:

  • Contribution to profitability (cited by 69 percent of respondents)
  • Earning an MBA or other advanced degree (36 percent)
  • Earning a professional certification such as AFP's Certified Treasury Professional® (CTP) or Certified Cash Manager (CCM) (24 percent)
  • Earning a CPA license (24 percent)
