The LPL Financial Advantage

The Power of Affiliation – Independent Advisors

LPL Financial was founded with a pioneering vision: to help entrepreneurial financial advisors establish successful businesses through which they could offer truly independent financial guidance and advice. LPL provides an integrated platform of tools and services such as:

  • Proprietary technology
  • Independent research
  • Comprehensive compliance services
  • Brokerage and investment advisory services

These services, and many others, are offered to over 16,000 financial advisors as the nation’s largest independent broker/dealer,* making LPL a leading distributor of financial products in the United States.

Having a strong partner allows LPL Financial advisors to leverage technology solutions and resources to focus on serving the needs of the client.  A broker-dealer should not stand in the way of serving the client.  LPL Financial seeks to enhance the advisor and client relationship.
