Here Comes LPL Focus!

Market Blog

Wednesday, August 4, 2021

LPL Financial is so excited to kick off our annual Focus conference, with more than 10,000 attendees sharing ideas, learning, and having a great time over the next three days. Given the world we live in, it will be virtual again this year, but we are excited to get back to in person next summer. Still, this year will hopefully be the best ever.

Highlights include various LPL executives discussing what is new with LPL Financial, trends in the industry, and how our more than 19,000 Advisors can help their clients. LPL’s CEO Dan Arnold will conduct a special keynote interview with Mike Krzyzewski, basketball coach at Duke University; guest speaker Abigail Posner from Google will present on embracing expansiveness and how this innovative approach gives you an edge. As demand for advice from advisors grows, there will be many things to learn, opportunities to laugh with new and old friends, and a chance to make some great memories over the next few days.

What is LPL Research doing? We are doing special LPL Market Signals LIVE broadcasts all three days, available each morning for our advisors. Additionally, we are set to discuss our 2021 Midyear Outlook in an always popular virtual Breakout session. Lastly, we’ll have a virtual booth, staffed by our full team each day, to exchange live ideas and chat with our advisors.

“Overall, these next few days will be fun, tiring, exhilarating and probably a little stressful at times,” commented LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “It took a small army of dedicated employees to pull it off, but in the end, helping our advisors is what it is all about and we can’t wait to get started!”
