BUSINESS
PRACTICES

We have a robust corporate governance framework that ensures oversight of our strategies and operations, and promotes ethical behavior across our business. This also guides our actions and holds us accountable for our culture, values, and business objectives.

SUSTAINABLE
INVESTMENTS

More than ever, your investors may be requesting sustainable or socially responsible investing strategies to guide their investments. To meet the need of those investors, we offer financial professionals access to a wide range of sustainable investment options like centrally managed portfolios, mutual funds, separate accounts, and exchange-traded products (ETP).

CORPORATE
SUSTAINABILITY

At LPL Financial, we pursue an ESG vision: to take care of our advisors and their clients by operating responsibly and ethically and strengthening trust with our mutual stakeholders. This vision guides our sustainability priorities and reflects our commitment to conduct our business in a responsible manner. We publish an annual to share our initiatives, accomplishments, and ongoing efforts.
