LPL Financial Announces Vendor Affinity Program & Inclusion of Succession Resource Group

By David Grau Jr. on Aug 25, 2015 9:10:28 AM

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - August 25, 2015) - Succession Resource Group, Inc. (SRG), the industry leader of acquisition and succession solutions for financial advisors, is pleased to announce its selection for inclusion in LPL Financial's new Vendor Affinity Program. The program is a new initiative designed to help advisors reduce the complexity and costs of running their businesses by offering a central repository of vendors who have been reviewed by LPL, the nation's largest independent broker-dealer*. LPL advisors can access the tools and expertise provided by SRG to leverage practice acquisition and succession planning as short and long-term growth tools.

SRG's solutions can help LPL advisors value, refine, protect, grow, and eventually transition their most valuable asset -- their business. SRG's solutions compliment LPL's internal consulting team to enable LPL advisors to receive comprehensive industry expertise/perspective and provide access to SRG's growing pool of customized valuation and succession tools. "At LPL, we remain committed to developing smarter and simpler ways to do business," said Dan Arnold, President of LPL. "The Vendor Affinity Program is a tangible way that LPL's scale can directly impact our clients' bottom line and further underscores the value in affiliation with LPL."

Founder & CEO of SRG, David Grau Jr., MBA said his firm is excited about the alliance with LPL Financial given how closely aligned SRG, LPL, and advisors' goals are for building businesses with sustainable and transferable value. "Succession planning is about building something for the next generation, for both advisors and their clients," said Grau. "Yet, industry-wide, less than 1 in 10 advisors has taken any meaningful steps towards planning for their eventual transition. If the average advisor was 40 years old, we could all keep our heads in the sand. But the average advisor is now in his or her mid 50s, so it's nice to find a partner as committed as we are to building sustainable advisor practices and raising the bar on succession planning industry-wide."
