Black Financial Advisor Business Community

Representation matters.

In an industry known for rapid innovation, diversity and inclusion efforts have lagged far behind. Black financial advisors have waited too long for their expertise to be valued and their contributions to be recognized. That’s why at LPL Financial, we’re not waiting — we’re working hard today to break through barriers to growth and create equitable opportunities for underrepresented communities.

Our financial advisors trust our commitment to keep listening and learning, and you can too. We created the Black Financial Advisors Business Community to ensure your voice is heard and to provide a dedicated space to connect with peers, share ideas, and grow their practices. It’s just one of the many resources available to you at LPL.

We have everything you need to thrive: the freedom to run your business your way, the financial technology and resources to help your clients confidently pursue their financial goals, and a supportive community by your side. 

Don't wait for your firm to catch up.

"One of the strongest and biggest reasons I’ve been an LPL advisor for 35 years is the independence that LPL offers to me. Being free to operate my practice the way I feel is best, and to be able to bring best in class services and products to our clients, is a true benefit of being an LPL independent advisor."
