The freedom to work on your own terms

Background

Many people turn their passion into work. These people have a vision for their future which they strive to realise that vision through smart work and dedication. However, for many employed individuals, their vision for the future remains just a dream. Employed individuals spend a large part of their lives working relentlessly towards achieving the company’s goals and seldom have a say in how many hours or where they work and lack discretion over with whom they interact and more importantly, over what and how much they sell.

The challenge

One of our new Independent Relationship Managers was a client manager with a leading wealth management firm. By all measures, he was successful in his role. So, when he quit the firm and joined WELREX® to start his own independent business, it surprised most people. 

On his part, this was a well-thought-out decision. He had found that many aspects of his role restricted by his employer’s policies. Also, the close client relationships he had forged during this time period were deemed to belong to the firm. So, he had little to show for the time and effort that he had invested over the last decade, apart from a monthly salary and annual bonus. The stiff targets that the firm set for him and his team had started to feel like a burden and were slowly beginning to undermine his commitment. To top it all, he also had to contend with unproductive and fairly ubiquitous bureaucracy and internal politics. In an attempt to retain his sanity and pursue his work on his own terms, he decided to quit his job and join WELREX®.

The solution

At WELREX®, we liberate relationship managers from unreasonable bureaucracy and internal politics and enable them to forge their career path on their own terms. As a WELREX® Independent Relationship Manager, you have the freedom to decide where, when, and with whom you want to work. You set your own targets and focus on the things that truly matter for your business. At the same time, you have the benefit of our resources, technology and network to build your business.

The result

Since becoming part of the WELREX® community, this Independent Relationship Manager now has greater flexibility and feels more energised about his work. He can optimise both his time and build his own business – which would not have been possible for him in a corporate setup. He believes that he is now finally starting to create and enjoy the future that he has always envisioned.
