“The LPL platform really places clients first and allows us to give back to the community. Everything we did as part of this move and every decision we made was with our own clients in mind. When someone walks through the door at Claritas, we want them to know the whole company works for them.”

– Brian Lynn

“[LPL doesn't] have any proprietary funds or products; rather, we were told to select whichever products we felt were best for the client’s situation. This client-centric approach really resonated with me and felt right. Thus began my avenue toward the independent model."

– Laurie Barela
