The Bank of New York (BNY) Mellon Corporation has announced that it is expanding its stateside wealth management sales workforce by 50 percent by 2015 , which will create 100 new industry jobs.

The Tribune Review reports that the expansion will generate positions across a number of states, including Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas and Washington.

BNY spokeswoman Susan Rivers told the media outlet that the company is hoping to have a presence in the top 25 wealth markets. 

"We"re finding that in the coming decade, we're going to see growth in individuals' assets, so we thought this was a strategic time to expand our sales force," she said. "These (customers) are people who will see the advice of a seasoned wealth manager."

Meanwhile, a new survey of certified financial planners has found that wealth managers and actuaries top the list of the best jobs of 2013.

According to Business Administration Information, the job market for financial planners and wealth managers is showing a boost for long-term prospects.

Cecil Bykerk, an actuary with nearly four decades of experience and president of the American Academy of Actuaries, told the industry news source that a number of opportunities exist in the field and similar sectors for those who are "skilled in mathematics and statistical analysis."
