The LPL Financial Investment Strategists consist of seasoned and accomplished industry veterans, comprising one of the largest and most experienced research groups among independent brokerage firms. The team works continuously to interpret and adjust to the latest economic and financial developments to help ensure your Model Wealth Portfolio benefits from consistent monitoring and meaningful, current information.
At LPL Financial, our independence places the Research team in a unique position to access a broad universe of investment products. We work side-by-side with your advisor and we have no business conflicts that prompt us to recommend (or reject) any investment product. Our decisions are unbiased and based solely on whether the investment fits a specific need or requirement.
We focus our greatest strengths on building and monitoring portfolios for investors. The collaborative process between members of our team with specific experience ensures that all of our portfolios are well diversified and designed to meet your theme-based goal.
The Investment Team
Employing time-tested, rigorous analytical methods strengthened by an environment that fosters intellectual curiosity, thought leadership, and integrity — the priority of the Research team at LPL Financial is to deliver optimal performance to your Model Wealth Portfolio.
- Portfolio Strategy: Our portfolio strategists understand that whether we are heading into a recession or bull market, it is important to make decisions that can work with the current environment while keeping an eye on conditions down the road. This team works to determine the appropriate areas of the market in which to invest on an asset allocation basis. They continuously monitor the ideas held in the portfolios and those that are up-and-coming to ensure that we have the best ideas in the portfolio at all times.
- Investment Strategy: Our Investment Strategy team leads the firm’s due diligence efforts focusing on mutual funds, separately-managed accounts, variable annuity subaccounts, exchange-traded products, and alternative investments. This team follows a thorough and market-tested investment discipline and understands that while investment products that comprise your portfolio may vary, what differentiates a strong performer from the pack is demonstrating a repeatable process and proven, consistent results through multiple economic cycles. Understanding how a manager or security performs in various conditions is a key to our recommendation process.
- Research Analytics: Since our recommendations within Model Wealth Portfolios are implemented within an all-inclusive model, it is important that we identify the underlying securities in which an investment targets to invest. The Analytics team uses statistical tools such as regression, optimization, and attribution analysis to determine the value that an investment has added within a particular asset class, sector, or industry over time.
Selecting Your Model Wealth Portfolio
In collaboration with your advisor, you can create an investment strategy that is aligned with your goals and expectations. One of the best ways to pursue your unique financial goals is to align your investment strategy with your vision for the future and feelings about risk, savings, and wealth.
Model Wealth Portfolios are built to specifically meet your changing investment needs as your lifestyle and future goals evolve. LPL Financial Research has designed portfolios to allow you to focus your wealth on what is most important to you, such as protecting your wealth in a down market, minimizing taxes, trying to capture excess returns, or generating retirement income. The portfolios are thoughtfully constructed and seek to benefit from the combination of professionally designed asset allocation strategies and rigorous investment selection. This process helps position each portfolio to benefit from long-term outlooks and short-term opportunities. Special emphasis is placed on the risk-reward characteristics of the investments.
