Brokerage companies that employ persons acting in a capacity of an account executive are licensed by the regulatory organizations such as SEC, NYSE, and NASD. The typical job of an account executive is to trade investment products such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds for the benefit of the clients. In some cases, an account executive may also act as an adviser. A typical account executive is paid either commission, or salary, or some combination of the two.
