LPL Financial Welcomes Financial Advisor Corey Phillips
“LPL as an industry-leading partner to financial advisors and I am eager to implement innovative tools and resources that LPL has to offer.” – Corey Phillips
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Jan. 6, 2022 – LPL Financial LLC announced today that financial advisor Corey Phillips has joined LPL Financial’s broker-dealer, corporate registered investment advisor (RIA) and custodial platforms. Phillips reported to LPL that he served approximately $115 million in advisory, brokerage and retirement assets.* He joined LPL from Park Avenue Securities, part of the Guardian Life Insurance Company of America.
Based in Pittsfield, Mass., Phillips’ journey to becoming a financial advisor was a bit unique. After college, he teamed up with his brother and father to own a small retail liquor store and rental properties. “My experience as a store owner connected me with people from all walks of life and added a truly unique layer of perspective to my work in financial advising,” said Phillips, who eventually left the retail world to launch his new career as a full-time financial advisor in 2014. The experience, he said, gave him a personable and engaging approach to his client relationships — he always makes an effort to practice active listening, understand his clients’ financial objective and personalize strategies to their diverse needs.
Why Corey chose LPL Financial
In searching for a new wealth management firm, Phillips chose to move to LPL and team up with Alex Kastrinakis, a former colleague who joined LPL last year. They plan to fully partner and launch a new brand later this year.
Phillips stated, “LPL as an industry-leading partner to financial advisors and I am eager to implement innovative tools and resources that LPL has to offer. I believe my clients will now enjoy an effortless and intuitive investing experience, and I have all the necessary capabilities to diversify investment options, maximize my clients’ return potential and differentiate my practice. Additionally, LPL has no proprietary investment products, so I can be a fiduciary and offer strategies and insights that are in my clients’ best interests.”
Scott Posner, LPL executive vice president, Business Development, stated, “Our team at LPL extends a warm welcome to Corey, and we are honored to support him and Alex in launching their rebranded practice later this year. We believe advisors know what is best for their clients, and they should be empowered with the independence and flexibility to do so. LPL strives to be a committed partner to our financial advisors, offering a wide range of differentiated services and innovative technology experiences. We look forward to a long-lasting partnership with Corey and the growth of his business.”
