LPL Financial LLC, the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer, announced that financial advisor Nate Carlon of Carlon Wealth Advisors has joined LPL Financial’s broker-dealer, registered investment advisor and custodial platforms.
He reported having served approximately $300 million in advisory, brokerage and retirement plan assets, and joins LPL after remaining at Stifel Financial for seven years.
Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Carlon started his career in banking and then serving as a fixed income specialist before he built his wealth management practice over the past 15 years. Carlon Wealth Advisors also includes Client Services Manager Lora McLaughlin and Jono Carlon, Wealth Operations Analyst.
“We want to elevate the client experience by incorporating robust technology and unique communication efforts to strengthen bonds, better educate the client and better manage goals and expectations,” Carlon said. “We felt LPL provides the best flexibility and resources to help our clients navigate change. We were especially drawn to LPL’s focus on driving advisor success, which in turn drives success for the clients. Additionally, LPL’s integrated platform gives us the greatest amount of flexibility to build out our firm in a manner that we feel best suits our clients.”
Last week, LPL reported that recruited assets during the quarter totaled $13 billion. The firm announced that their advisor count increased 246 during the quarter to 21,521, a year-over-year gain of 1,430.
LPL supports more than 21,000 financial advisors, 1,100 institution-based investment programs and 500 independent RIA firms nationwide.
