We have one of the most innovative and comprehensive asset management programs in the securities industry. LPL Financial offers four fee-based platforms, anchored by the original fee-based platform: Strategic Asset Management (SAM). Within SAM, we construct and personalize our clients’ portfolios with access to over 4,500 no-load/load-waived funds and Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF’s).
With a fee-based account, our goals are aligned with our clients’. Rather than pay commissions, our clients pay an annual fee. If the accounts grow, our clients are rewarded by the increased value and our Wealth Strategists are rewarded by earning your business over the long-term. SAM accounts also offer flexibility in purchasing individual stocks and bonds. These accounts allow us to create diversified strategies for your investment portfolio with transparency through our detailed statements and reporting.
Investing involves risk including loss of principal. No strategy assures success or protects against loss. Advisory fees are in addition to the internal expenses charged by an investment company, and if you hold such a security, these should be included when evaluating the costs of a fee-based account. Clients should periodically re-evaluate whether a fee-based account continues to be appropriate for their needs compared to other alternatives.
