LPL Financial LLC, the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer, announced that financial advisors Rodney Van Buren and Whitney Colton have joined LPL Financial’s broker-dealer, registered investment advisor and custodial platforms.
The advisors reported having served approximately $200 million in advisory, brokerage and retirement plan assets and join from VALIC Financial Advisors Inc., the broker-dealer for AIG Retirement Services.
In connection, the team has launched an independent practice, Van Buren Wealth Management, based in Melbourne, Florida. They are joined by client relations and executive support staff members Karen Savage and Nicole Wilbert.

We learn about their personal situation, dreams and goals and understand their risk tolerance,” Van Buren said. “These are personal, thoughtful connections, and we expect to continue building these relationships.”
