How Independence Can Help

LPL was built on the belief that independent financial guidance benefits everyone—and advisors are best able to serve clients when they have access to innovative tools and solutions that work for them. Because we do not sell any particular products, our analyses and recommendations are objective to an investment or insurance company.

Your advisor has access to professional market analysis from our research team—one of the largest and most tenured research groups among independent brokerage firms. Our analysts’ knowledge of the market and economy allows us to provide insights and
recommendations to advisors across a range of investment products. 

We offer no proprietary investment products and engage in no investment banking activities, which means:

1. Our research and market insights are objective.

2. Your advisor is free to recommend any investments that will help you work towards your financial goals.

Our Research team regularly reviews investment products, ensuring products your advisor recommends meet our rigorous standards of due diligence. With your advisor, you can invest with confidence, knowing the guidance you receive is independent and grounded solely in the needs of your unique financial situation.
As an advisor, we're free to recommend investments from some of the nation’s top providers, including those in:

Financial planning—college, retirement, estate, etc.

High-net-worth products and services

Individual investments—stocks, bonds,mutual funds, trusts, annuities, insurance
