About LPL Financial
Our independence, your advantage
Our independence means we can provide you with objective financial guidance—allowing us to act in your best interests at all times.
As an independent firm, we have the flexibility to offer you access to a wide range of nonproprietary products and services—without the obligation to sell any particular investment or brand—keeping our focus solely on your wealth management and legacy objectives.
Additionally, we are supported by the resources of LPL Financial, the nation’s largest independent broker/dealer.* With $464.8 billion in advisory and brokerage assets,** LPL Financial provides the technology and breadth of services to support sophisticated wealth management solutions.
LPL Financial is a leading source of objective advice for accumulating and managing personal wealth. The Research Team at LPL Financial is one of the largest and most experienced research groups among independent brokerage firms, comprised of seasoned and accomplished industry veterans.
The LPL Financial SIPC membership provides account protection up to a maximum of $500,000 per customer, of which $250,000 may be claims for cash. An explanatory brochure is available at www.sipc.org. Additionally, through London Insurers, LPL Financial accounts have additional securities protection to cover the net equity of customer accounts up to an overall aggregate firm limit of $575 million subject to conditions and limitations. The account protection applies when an SIPC member firm fails financially and is unable to meet obligations to securities clients, but it does not protect against losses from the rise and fall in the market value of investments.
As your financial advocate, we leverage these valuable resources to prepare and deliver our most suitable investment ideas designed exclusively to support your financial and personal aspirations.
