CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Aug. 31, 2023 – LPL Financial LLC announced today that Legacy Wealth Advisors, Inc., has joined LPL Financial’s broker-dealer, RIA and custodial platforms. The team reported having served approximately $280 million in advisory, brokerage and retirement plan assets*, and joins LPL from Cetera.

Based in Town and Country, Mo., the business is led by Founder and President Kevin Loyd, AIF®, Loyd has 22 years in the financial services industry after starting as a full-time intern while attending the University of Missouri – Saint Louis. The ensemble team includes fellow financial advisors Calvin Keth and Jeremy Spellmeyer, and together they focus heavily on helping their clients with retirement planning and wealth distribution.

“We make it a priority to come up with an entire roadmap for our clients on how and when to take the money out in the most tax-efficient way,” said Loyd, host of the “When Retirement Happens” radio show. “We cherish the relationships we’ve built with clients over the years. It’s so rewarding to not only sit down with them and help them solve problems but to also hear stories about their kids and grandkids. By getting to know them on a more personal level, we can develop personalized plans to maximize their goals and help ensure a meaningful financial legacy.”

We think clients will appreciate the consolidated statements and digital tools available to access their account information. Ultimately, we will be able to serve clients more effectively, which is what they deserve.”
