Total earnings 2012
Employee benefits consultants (EBCs) brought home the most bacon last year, with the average salary at £87,096. This was up on earnings in 2011, just shy of £80,000. Snapping at their heels were broker consultants, with an average salary of just under £70,000, which was slightly under the average earned in 2011.
In third place and a little way behind were financial advisers. Employed advisers fared better than self-employed, receiving an average of £62,838 in 2012. The self-employed lagged behind with £60,533.
Paraplanners earned around the same as admin and support staff, with admin just slightly tipping the scales.
