LPL Street View: What Does LPL Stand For?

Market Blog

Wednesday, June 23, 2021

LPL Financial recently hit two major milestones. First off, we hit more than $1 trillion in assets from our more than 18,000 advisors and their more than six million client accounts. The other big milestone is we officially made the Fortune 500 for the first time in our company’s history.

We are very proud of these milestones, but there are still great opportunities ahead of us. But what are we doing that has helped us hit these recent milestones? And why are we only just getting started? At the end of the day, it is all about helping our advisors grow their businesses. Our mission statement is we take care of our advisors, so they can take care of their clients. That is what LPL stands for and what we are all about. Helping our advisors help their clients.

For more on this, please watch this recent Street View video with LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick, as he discusses what we are all about, but also tells a funny story about what LPL doesn’t stand for. You can watch the video from our YouTube channel or below.
