A stock broker provides a vital financial advice service. It is in the best financial interest for clients to hire a stock broker when buying and selling. Brokers have access to cutting edge knowledge and investment strategies. Stock brokers buy and sell orders for shares, stocks and securities on behalf of clients. This may be through a stock market or over the counter, for a commission.
How To Become A Stockbroker
You do not need any formal qualifications to become a stockbroker, as long as you apply for and pass licensing certifications. To do this you will need to pass Series 7 and Series 63 examinations at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
