Go Independent, But Don’t Go It Alone

Advocacy, a bigger voice, power in numbers, economies of scale, the leverage to your bottom line. Going independent doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Many advisors find it easier to run their own business as part of an established network while enjoying true independence. Many Financial Advisors new to the independent model seek complete professional administrative /operational support and office infrastructure . As one of the largest LPL Financial offices in the country, we provide ongoing support on key compliance, back-office, and supervisory issues that would otherwise interfere with the advisor’s business. By sharing the knowledge of those who’ve already made their move, your transition and our dedicated process makes your transition smooth and efficient allowing less downtime for you and your clients.

An established branch may provide the perfect combination of autonomy, support and net profitability
