LPL Financial LLC, the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer, an RIA custodian, and a wholly owned subsidiary of LPL Financial Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: LPLA), today announced the addition of NetVEST Financial LLC (“NetVEST”), an independent financial firm focused on multigenerational wealth and estate planning, to its broker-dealer and corporate RIA platforms.

Led by John Cartolano, an industry veteran with over 25 years of experience within the financial advisory space, NetVEST provides fee and commission-based services with a focus on retirees across the nation.

The firm also has a group of in-house professionals skilled in the following areas: investment management, retirement planning, trust design, estate planning strategies, as well as tax, insurance and education plans. Additionally, NetVEST created the “Trusts and Beyond,” coaching series, with seminars conducted four to six times a month, to educate retail investors about trust and estate planning management.

John Cartolano, President and CEO of NetVEST Financial LLC, said, “I am delighted to affiliate with LPL Financial, a firm that has supported me for many years in the past, and which I am privileged to partner with once more. Central to this decision is my recognition of LPL Financial’s commitment to everything that is truly crucial for our sustained success within the financial advisory industry: Support for independent and objective advice, with the advisor at the core of all client interactions, and an open architecture platform that is free of proprietary products. I am extremely pleased to bring my team back to LPL Financial, and grateful for the continued loyalty and commitment of our clients.”
