LPL was founded with a revolutionary vision: Help financial professionals build competitive businesses while they served their clients’ best interests. And more than 30 years later, that remains true of LPL today. Building on that foundation, LPL offers comprehensive support for financial professionals across the spectrum of our industry: from independent financial advisors to financial institutions, from local advisor teams to large-scale RIA firms, from fully autonomous business owners to advisors employed by LPL.

We believe in the value of independent advice, but at LPL, independence is not one-size-fits all. How could we serve you?


We’re more than just the nation’s number one independent broker-dealer and top RIA custodian.1 We believe that Americans deserve access to personalized guidance from a financial professional, and our strength and stability helps us best support those financial professionals.
