Holistic financial wellness programs to become available to advisors and plan sponsors

LPL Financial LLC, the nation's largest independent broker/dealer*, an RIA custodian, and a wholly owned subsidiary of LPL Financial Holdings Inc., today announced that it is expanding its Worksite Financial Solutions platform to include workshops and webcasts developed and delivered by Financial Finesse’s team of financial planners. Financial Finesse provides unbiased workplace financial wellness programs and has worked with LPL Financial since 2011 as an independent education provider.

“Every employer has distinct needs when it comes to financial education and financial planning,” said Dave Reich, EVP and Head of Retirement Partners at LPL Financial. “There is no one-size-fits-all approach, and the more options we can bring to the table, the more we can customize programs that directly address their needs. We believe Financial Finesse’s workshops and webcasts can be an important resource for advisors and plan sponsors.”

The new Financial Finesse workshops and webcasts are highly interactive and focus on engaging participants through case studies, competitions and real-time calculations that show how financial decisions made today may impact an employee’s financial health over time. Topics are delivered in the program’s popular Money Madness format, where groups of workshop and webcast participants compete by correctly answering important financial questions in an effort to achieve the winning score.

LPL Retirement Partners’ Worksite Financial Solutions platform is designed to provide employers with a guidance-based, beginning–to–end retirement solution intended to help employees create confidence in their financial future. The program offers a full suite of services, including Financial Finesse’s online financial wellness assessment, and assistance with joining an employer’s plan for the first time, accumulating assets, seeking help with career transitions as well as in-plan participant advice, all designed to help improve an employee’s financial outlook by helping them save, consolidate retirement plan assets and appropriately invest their savings.
