  1. High Potential:

  1. Greater Client Satisfaction:

If a candidate does not own a Series 6 license, they limit themselves in terms of the services that are provided by licensed financial advisors and planners. This leads to a lower client satisfaction due to a limited approach towards providing financial counsel.
