Questions Regarding the Partnership with LPL Financial
We are really excited to announce that LPL, the country’s largest independent broker-dealer firm, will be partnering with Lucia Capital Group later this year. A broker-dealer is a company that provides regulatory compliance and support to registered investment advisor firms, and acts as the buyer and seller of securities for its customers. In addition, LPL will also act as Lucia Capital Group’s clearing firm that will custody our brokerage and advisory assets.
If all of this behind-the-scenes technical stuff is a bit hard to understand, that’s okay, because for you, our clients, little will be changing. Lucia Capital Group will continue to operate as always as your independent financial planning firm. Your financial advisor, the Buckets Strategy®, your service and support team, Rick “the Professor” Plum, and the entire Lucia family will all remain the same.
Naturally, some things will be changing for us in the background, and in this week’s edition of Lucia Capital Group Weekly, Chairman and CEO Ray Lucia Jr. explains in further detail what will, and will not, be happening as we go forward. Watch the video for more information!
