LPL Financial LLC, the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer, has added financial advisors Mark Sudol, Gary Sudol, and Jeffery Lavin of The Sudol Group to its broker-dealer and corporate registered investment advisor platforms. The firm’s advisors join from Ameriprise Financial Services and serve approximately $300 million of client brokerage, advisory and retirement plan assets.
Mark Sudol founded the Las Vegas-based firm in 2003, adding a second location in Gardenia, California, in 2010 when Lavin joined the firm. Along with Gary Sudol, Mark’s brother, the advisors work together to serve clients throughout Greater Las Vegas and Southern California. They team includes office support staff Courtney Sudol and Sarah Ahlheim.
“We believe LPL’s platform gives us the most open canvas to help our clients paint their financial futures. There are no proprietary products, so we are free to advise our clients and create portfolios that are truly catered to their needs,” said Mark Sudol, who has more than 35 years of experience in the financial services industry.
LPL Financial provides service to approximately $706 billion in brokerage and advisory assets as of the second quarter of 2019. The company provides proprietary technology, comprehensive clearing services, practice management programs and training, and independent research to more than 16,000 financial advisors and 700 financial institutions.
