"Just as we have seen throughout 2015, this quarter we continued to attract high-producing advisors who manage sizable books of business. And while we have welcomed advisors from all channels, we see our success in recruiting out of the independent channel as further affirmation of our leadership position in the market place. Advisors recognize the value of affiliation with LPL to be able to provide objective advice to their clients and have the support of our innovative tools and resources."

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release regarding LPL Financial Holdings Inc.'s (together with its subsidiaries, including LPL Financial LLC, the "Company") potential future levels of assets serviced, growth, business strategy, and plans, as well as any other statements that are not related to present facts or current conditions or that are not purely historical, constitute forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company's historical performance and its plans, estimates and expectations as of Nov. 4, 2015. The words "potential," "anticipates," "intends," "believes," "expects," "may," "plans," "predicts," "will" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees that the future levels of assets serviced, results, plans, intentions or expectations expressed or implied by the Company will be achieved. Matters subject to forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, including economic, legislative, regulatory, competitive and other factors, which may cause levels of assets serviced, actual financial or operating results, levels of activity, or the timing of events, to be materially different than those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements. In particular, the Company can provide no assurance that the assets reported as serviced by its newly recruited financial advisors at their prior firms will translate into assets serviced at LPL. Important factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include: the choice by one or any of the clients of the Company's newly recruited financial advisors mentioned in this press release not to open brokerage and/or advisory accounts at LPL Financial and/or move their respective assets from advisor's prior firm to a new account at LPL Financial; discovery of errors made in the calculation of assets serviced reported by the newly recruited advisor; changes in general economic and financial market conditions, including retail investor sentiment; fluctuations in the value of assets under custody; effects of competition in the financial services industry; and the other factors set forth in Part I, "Item 1A. Risk Factors" in the Company's 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent SEC filing. Except as required by law, the Company specifically disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of developments occurring after the date of this press release, even if its estimates change, and you should not rely on those statements as representing the Company's views as of any date subsequent to the date of Nov. 4, 2015.
