CHARLOTTE, N.C. – May 10, 2022 – LPL Financial LLC announced today that financial advisor Peter Carmack, CFA, has joined LPL Financial to launch an independent practice, Carmack Capital Management, LLC. He reported having served approximately $510 million in advisory, brokerage and retirement assets* and joins LPL from Wells Fargo Advisors.

Based in Lee’s Summit, MO., Carmack has built his decades-long career on developing personalized and comprehensive financial strategies for his clients, which include individuals, families and businesses. Since he began his journey in the financial services industry in 1993, he has used his clients' financial goals in conjunction with their current financial situation to structure a systematic approach that supports them as they work toward their financial aspirations. Together with his longtime client service associate, Jaimie Morrison, Carmack aims to offer a differentiated experience for his clients through highly personalized financial advice.

“We have always focused on being careful, conservative and competent – and I believe that’s what makes us different,” Carmack said. “Our clients rely on us to listen to their needs, identify the best options for them and guide them through the current investment environment. We care deeply about providing them with outstanding service and we created this practice with their best interests in mind.”

Why they made the move to independence

With the goal of launching an independent practice that would help him provide personalized advice and unparalleled service to his clients, Carmack turned to LPL. “The financial landscape is rapidly changing, and in order to achieve my mission of providing my clients with the highest quality of care, I needed a financial partner that could support their evolving needs. We found that with LPL,” Carmack said. “I’ve always wanted to run my own practice and I can’t image a better place to do that than with a firm that has served as an enabling partner to financial advisors for over 30 years. By joining LPL, I have the opportunity to choose the products and services that best serve my clients, and I’m confident this move will enhance my ability to service their accounts.”

Scott Posner, LPL executive vice president, Business Development, said, “Our team extends a warm welcome to Peter and Jaimie, and we’re honored to support the launch of Carmack Capital Management. We’re committed to providing our advisors with the innovative technology, integrated platforms and resources needed to help them to run their business efficiently. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Carmack Capital Management and we wish them great success in this new chapter.”
