How does it work?

You subscribe to Paraplanning Services according to our fee schedule. Your subscription includes the services of both a designated Plan Manager and a team of Plan Associates. The Plan Manager serves as your personal planning partner and works to understand your planning philosophies and identify strategies that align with your clients’ goals. The Plan Manager then partners with a Plan Associate, who is responsible for data entry, analysis creation, and defining opportunities. The Plan Manager oversees the quality and accuracy of the plan delivery.

You receive a full plan as generated by the financial planning software, which you can access, maintain, and adjust in future planning discussions with your client. You also receive an LPL Financial Plan Summary recapping client goals and assumptions, key highlights, observations, and action items.

The Paraplanning team acts as an extension of your services. We remain in the background unless otherwise indicated in the type of plan you request.

Paraplanning Services supports eMoney, WealthVision, Right Capital, and MoneyGuidePro.
