About LPL

Set a New Standard for Your Finances

All investment transactions must be executed through a licensed broker-dealer, and we have chosen LPL due to its commitment to high standards of excellence and top-quality technology.

LPL was formed in 1989 through the merger of two small but successful brokerage firms, Linsco (established in 1968) and Private Ledger (founded in 1973). Today, LPL is America's No. 1 independent brokerage firm* - with more than 5,500 financial advisors, based in more than 3,300 branch offices nationwide.

LPL's rise to prominence has been driven by a commitment to independence, excellence and the simple premise that achieving your financial goals requires:

  • Solid, unbiased advice
  • Meaningful, timely information and research
  • Easy access to value-added investments and services
  • Unparalleled customer service

Spinnaker Wealth Management can deliver all of these to you, thanks to support from LPL's technology, comprehensive training programs and dedicated personnel.

As LPL moves into its fourth decade, they remain committed to leading the independent brokerage business. They continue to set the highest standards in every aspect of supporting their advisors so that we may help you realize a new standard for your financial future.

Your Needs Come First

LPL offers no investment products of their own, so LPL advisors are not subject to product quotas and sales goals, but focus on understanding your individual financial objectives. To help them meet your needs with suitable options, LPL provides access to thousands of individual securities and forms alliances with the nation's leading providers of investment and insurance products.

Access to Top-Notch Investment Research

Because LPL offers no proprietary products and engages in no investment banking activities , we are able to provide unbiased investment recommendations that integrate a broad scope of investment products, including stocks, bonds, annuities and mutual funds.

We can construct individual investment portfolios by utilizing LPL's top-notch proprietary research on the economy and a wide variety of investment-related topics. LPL's Research Department uses state-of-the-art, technology-based tools and in-depth personal interviews to monitor open-end mutual funds.
