The Value of Being an Independent Financial Advisor at LPL

LPL Financial Creative Graphic

“Relationships are the best part of being an independent financial advisor with LPL Financial. Partnering with LPL provides me with the resources to be a fiduciary of my client’s wealth while still being able to create investment portfolios customized to meet their individual needs. As a Hispanic advisor, LPL has proven to have a welcoming culture, as can be seen with our Spanish language educational material for clients and multiple Advisor Business Communities for advisors to share experiences.”

LPL’s Advisor LPL Inclusion Council is “made up of advisors at all the different levels of practice, with different backgrounds and specialties. It's become this wonderful resource at LPL that continues to get better every year as the council expands. The people who run the council started noticing that the more we provide to this group, the more we're providing to the firm. I'm very proud of the work we've done.”

“The restrictions of being a wirehouse advisor weren’t so obvious until I came to LPL. I couldn’t wear my hair this way, or wear this lipstick color, or I could only wear these two color suits. As a Latina, I am a colorful and affectionate and I wanted to be authentically me when interacting with people. I’ve been in the industry over 25 years, and I’ve never felt so at ease, so invited, so part of something… and with that has come outstanding success. My clients and I both know that the color of money is green, but LPL recognizes that there is something about giving me an outlet to express myself that helps me be the best version of myself. Muchas gracias LPL for being a great partner in helping me help my clients, in the way I believe is best for them!”
