CHARLOTTE, N.C. – March 22, 2021 – LPL Financial LLC today announced that financial advisor Tim Vanderloo CFP®, has joined LPLFinancial’s broker-dealer, hybrid registered investment advisor (RIA) and custodial platforms. He is aligned with Silverleaf Wealth Management, an existing LPL firm. Vanderloo reported having served approximately $200 million in advisory and brokerage assets*. He joins LPL from Wells Fargo Advisors.

Vanderloo, who started his career in sales and computer consulting, brings 21 years of financial service experience to Silverleaf.

“We are pleased to welcome Tim and Susan to our team,” said Justin Gibson, president of Silverleaf Wealth Management. “We believe his experience and deep knowledge will help Silverleaf expand the range and depth of services we can provide to our clients. Their commitment to offering personal service and trusted guidance aligns with our firm’s values and vision to put clients’ best interests first. Their extensive background in dealing with the unique challenges facing high-net-worth families will be an asset to the entire firm.”

Tim Vanderloo, understanding the needs of clients

Based in his hometown of Omaha, Neb., Vanderloo made the move to independence with a goal to build a practice that prioritizes the financial goals of his clients. “My belief is that financial planning is the pinnacle of knowing and understanding the needs of a client. The process allows me to discover what matters most to clients to be able to make knowledgeable recommendations for appropriate products and services,” he said.

Silverleaf’s multifamily office and boutique approach appealed to Vanderloo.”I can drive relationships and identify goals for my clients and then bring in other professionals and additional resources to fully serve all of their financial needs,” he said. “I really liked that Silverleaf has the backing of LPL, a large organization with extensive research, innovative technology and access to the latest planning tools. I’m confident that I will have all the resources I’ll need to serve my clients, and that my voice will be heard when I reach out for additional support.”

Scott Posner, LPL executive vice president, Business Development, said, “We welcome Tim and Susan to LPL and congratulate Silverleaf on growing its team of advisors. Launching a new business on our independent platform is an exciting step and we are honored to be Tim’s partner in the next chapter of his career. We will continue to leverage our scale to invest in robust resources, business solutions and integrated capabilities designed to help advisors differentiate their practice, meet the evolving needs of their clients and build their business with long-term value in mind. We wish Tim and the Silverleaf team continued success and look forward to being their partner for many years to come.”
