Independent Advisors

As an advisor with LPL, you define your independent practice. Our role is simply to help you serve your clients more effectively and achieve the success you envision. Helping you—and all of our advisors—establish a competitive, independent practice is at the heart of our mission. Our open product architecture and innovative fee-based programs, coupled with objective research, provide you with the tools and flexibility you need to develop investment programs best suited for your clients.

No matter how carefully you have run your practice, there are often factors beyond your control such as the recent increases in government regulations and deteriorating margin conditions. Are you willing to risk this hard work on a broker/dealer that may not have the size and scale to survive this uncertain environment?

At LPL, we understand the challenges of today’s financial environment, and specifically the effect these changes have had on broker/dealers and on advisors’ practices. When you partner with LPL Financial, you’re affiliated with the largest independent broker/dealer in the country.* We want to partner with you to ensure the success of your practice for years to come.
