Our Registered Investment Advisor Model

We know that managing your wealth and planning for important goals like retirement and estate planning can be complex and time consuming. You require a qualified partner you can value to bring the right experience and resources to you when pursuing your financial goals.

Being independent, we can choose from a broad array of products and services. We are not required to represent any institutionally promoted products, so we can offer personalized financial information based solely on our clients’ financial agendas.

The advantages of our firm’s structure are
  • Transparency—Clear, easy-to-understand explanations of the products and services available to you
  • Support and Resources—Depth of investment choices that are often unparalleled in the industry
  • Personalized, Independent Advice—Independence and flexibility to deliver strategies with no quotas or institutionally required products 

Our professionals operate with the backing of the nation’s leading independent broker-dealer, LPL Financial. This relationship allows us to operate an independent business without any required products to sell, while still having access to top of the line resources and tools. 

Brokerage (LPL Financial)

LPL Financial (Nasdaq: LPLA) was founded on the principle that the firm should work for the advisor, and not the other way around. Today, LPL is a leader in the markets we serve,* supporting nearly 20,000 financial advisors, and approximately 800 institution-based investment programs and 500 independent RIA firms nationwide. We are steadfast in our commitment to the advisor-centered model and the belief that Americans deserve access to personalized guidance from a financial advisor. At LPL, independence means that advisors have the freedom they deserve to choose the business model, services, and technology resources that allow them to run their perfect practice. And they have the freedom to manage their client relationships, because they know their clients best. Simply put, we take care of our advisors, so they can take care of their clients.
