"When hiring financial advisors, large banks and financial institutions are looking for finance-savvy candidates who have the knowledge, experience, and sales skills to grow a substantial clientele base. In an interview, be ready to participate in a sales role-play with a hypothetical customer as well as discuss how you've attracted new clients in the past. While no formal degree is necessary, a background in business, sales, or finance is preferred."
(Paraphrase) Can you handle building a client base from scratch?
Yes, though it would be a matter of having the desire to focus only on sales (and not also planning and analytics)
