The Value of Being an Independent Black Financial Advisor


"One of the strongest and biggest reasons I’ve had an LPL advisor for 33 years is the independence that LPL offers to me. While the technology and support that I receive is second to none, it is the ability for me to be totally independent that offers me the greatest benefit in serving our clients. 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."

Lee V. Bethel - President , Comprehensive Benefit Services Inc.


“Being a financial advisor is the best professional decision I have ever made. When I decided to become an independent financial advisor I knew I wanted to be with the biggest and the best, which is why I chose LPL Financial! The firm has exceeded my expectations in every way imaginable. The practice management capabilities are limitless, the people are superbly resourceful and innovative, the culture is infectious and the depth of the firm is astonishing. LPL has proven to be everything I didn’t know I needed.”

Denika Tokunaga, - President, Maven Wealth Management
