Keeping up with the increasingly complex financial markets is a demanding task, but our team of advisors has decades of experience getting results for our clients while enjoying access to world-class research, state-of-the-art technology, and comprehensive investment tools. We will work with you to map out an investment plan that is tailored to your goals and tolerance for risk.
Our overarching approach is to pick investments that have a track record that we can trust. We trust their approach and their history of results, and we trust their prices for our clients. We steer away from fees that undermine results, and we always weigh tax considerations. However, there is no “one-size-fits-all” strategy to investing. Instead, we prefer to be flexible and strive to offer you the investments best suited to meet your financial goals. Your unique circumstances and personal objectives dictate the method of investing and the types of vehicles chosen to help pursue your goals. Investments you already own can be combined with the ones we select to complete your customized portfolio and support the success of your long-term plan.
Fee-based asset management allows you and your financial advisor to share a common goal – to grow the value of your assets. A long-term approach to investing, fee-based asset management ties your advisor’s compensation directly to the performance of your account. Instead of commissions, your advisor earns an annual fee based on the market value of your account. You and your advisor concentrate on what matters most – building an investment portfolio designed to help pursue your specific needs.

To give clients the maximum level of protection for their accounts, the LPL Financial SIPC Membership provides account protection up to a maximum of $500,000 per customer, of which $250,000 may be claims for cash. An explanatory brochure is available at www.sipc.org. Additionally, through London Insurers, LPL Financial accounts have additional securities coverage to cover the net equity of customer accounts up to an overall aggregate firm limit of $575,000,000, subject to conditions and limitations. The account protection applies when a SIPC firm fails financially and is unable to meet obligations to securities clients, but it does not protect against losses from the rise and fall in the market value of investments.
Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against loss. There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.
