Focus 2018 Is Here. Are You Ready?

Next week is Focus 2018, our flagship conference that brings together the best and brightest in the industry to discuss the most relevant opportunities for and challenges facing financial professionals today. The conference runs from Sunday, July 29, to Tuesday, July 31.

Are you ready?

It is a jam-packed three days of presentations, idea exchange, and fun in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to hearing from our CEO Dan Arnold and many other LPL team members on what we see for the future of the firm and the industry, we have an amazing lineup of guest speakers and entertainment, including CNBC Senior Analyst and financial industry expert, Ron Insana.

If you aren’t able to join the more than 6,000 people attending the event, including more than 3,000 advisors, don’t worry—we have you covered. We’ll be live-tweeting many of the highlights as they happen. Be sure to follow LPL Research on Twitter via @LPLResearch, as we’ll have multiple people watching all the presentations and reporting back the most interesting and worthwhile takeaways. Also, we’re using the hashtag #LPLFocus, so you can follow all the tweets from everyone there.

What about the LPL Research team? We’ll be presenting as well, with Burt White, chief investment officer and managing director, Investor and Investment Solutions, set to present on the main stage on Tuesday, July 31, in front of more than 6,000 people. Other members of the Research team will be delivering smaller breakout presentations on the Midyear Outlook and more.

If you plan to attend Focus 2018, be sure to come up to the LPL Research booth and say “hello” to the team. We’d love to chat!
