LPL Financial is the largest organization of independent financial advisors in the United States. LPL Financial was formed in 1989 through the merger of two brokerage firms: Linsco (established in 1968) and Private Ledger (established in 1973); and has since expanded its number of independent financial advisors from a few hundred to more than 13,300 in 2012. LPL Financial has main office locations in Boston, Charlotte, and San Diego. Approximately 2,900 employees support financial advisors; financial institutions; and technology, custody, and clearing service subscribers with enabling technology, comprehensive clearing and compliance services, practice management programs and training, and independent research. LPL Financial advisors help clients meet investment goals with a number of financial services, including equities, bonds, mutual funds, annuities, insurance, and fee-based programs. Unlike many other brokerage firms, LPL Financial does not develop its own investment products, enabling the firm’s investment professionals to offer financial advice free from broker/dealer-inspired conflicts of interest.
