Ex-risk adviser joins ClearView as BDM
ClearView Wealth has appointed a former Enva risk adviser as its new business development manager for Queensland.
According to a LinkedIn post, Richard Monroe began his new role as a life insurance BDM last week with ClearView last week.
"I know ClearView very well and am a huge fan," said Mr Monroe.
"I love their products and have recommended them to many of my clients. I'm really excited to be joining the ClearView team and can’t wait to get out there and start helping advisers."
Mr Monroe was previously a BDM with BT Financial Group before he decided to become a client-facing insurance adviser, according to the social media post.
"It was a massive risk, but back then it was something I really needed to do. I felt that the risk was worth the potential reward," he said.
"I didn’t want to look back when I was an old bloke and regret not trying."
After four years, Mr Monroe said he "learned a lot about" himself, including that being in the adviser role was not for him.
"In many ways I am not suited to the role and, perhaps most crucially, I just don’t enjoy it. And life is too short to not be happy," he said.
