When Robert began his career, he noticed an inherent conflict with many firms in the industry. After working with several large financial organizations, he decided to look for a company that was independent, in order to provide a objective environment for his clients and himself. He decided to join LPL Financial, the nation’s largest independent broker / dealer, as reported by Financial Planning Magazine June 1996-2018 based on total revenue. He believes that the best investment process starts with working with a firm that offers objective recommendations. LPL Financial does not offer proprietary products and does not engage in investment banking activities. He is able to provide investment recommendations that integrate a broad scope of investment products.
Robert has access to hundreds of the top institutional money managers in the country, which cover all of the asset classes.
