What are the best LinkedIn groups for job hunters in investment and wealth management?

I'm collecting recommendations for LinkedIn groups that are helpful for job hunters in investment and wealth management.

If you name a group, I'd like to know WHY you recommend it. Is it good because it shares job postings? Does it give great job hunting advice? Or does something else make it stand out?

This is for a post on my blog, so please mention if it's okay to quote you by name and affiliation (or field in which you're job hunting). If you prefer, you can make your comment on LinkedIn.


To get you started, here are the names of some LinkedIn groups that may be helpful:
* Family Offices Group
* Financial Services Career Group - eFinancial Careers
I occasionally read and enjoy Jon Jacobs' articles on eFinancial Careers,  even though I'm not job hunting
* Hedge Fund Group
* Investment Professionals Group
* Mutual Fund and Investment Jobs & Careers

Thank you!

  1. There are lots of LinkedIn groups that offer good job hunting advice. In fact, people who post advice seem to post the exact same info to dozens of boards. Good exposure for them, but lots of duplication for you if you belong to many groups. My take: good advice is available almost anywhere.

    One frustration I have with most of the job groups out there is that they are dominated by resume writers and career coaches trolling for clients. It's frustrating because that's exactly what I would do if I were in their shoes, but as a job hunter I classify most of those posts as unhelpful clutter.

    Here are a few groups that I like for their job listings:
    Brokerhunter
    Financial Services Career Center Investments
    Finance & Accounting Professionals

    For good topic-specific groups, I like:
    Wealth Management Group
    Financial Executive Networking Group (open to FENG members only)
    Financial Planner Alliance
    Greater Boston Estate Planning Professionals
    Wealth Management Exchange

  2. Steve,

    These are great specific suggestions. I hadn't heard of some of them.

    Thank you!
