LPL Financial LLC, the nation's largest independent broker-dealer, a custodian for registered investment advisors (RIAs), and a wholly owned subsidiary of LPL Financial Holdings Inc., today unveiled a new Worksite Financial Solutions mobile application during the LPL Retirement Partners Annual Conference 2014, held in Scottsdale, AZ . The app will serve as an extension of LPL’s Worksite Financial Solutions platform, providing plan participants with access to manage their retirement plan accounts directly from their mobile devices anywhere, any time.
The launch of the Worksite Financial Solutions mobile app reflects LPL’s ongoing commitment to delivering flexible, cutting-edge solutions that address plan participants evolving financial needs. LPL retirement plan advisors at the conference received a preview of the app, including interactive demonstrations, allowing them to log in and explore the new tool. LPL expects to officially launch the new app by the end of the year.
“The rollout of the Worksite Financial Solutions mobile app represents a significant step forward for LPL Financial Retirement Partners and our ability to help advisors provide holistic advice that’s tailored to retirement plan participant individual goals and circumstances. Using this innovative solution, retirement plan participants will be able to manage financial decisions with greater flexibility and ease than ever before,” David Reich, executive vice president of Retirement Partners. “The app further differentiates LPL Financial’s retirement plan advisors by enabling their plan participants to work toward achieving their financial goals.”
Using the new app, clients and plan participants will enjoy the following benefits:
- End-to-end plan enrollment support to guide users through every phase of the retirement planning process
- Access to qualified LPL advisors and the Retirement Results Team for support with managing their retirement plan accounts
- Robust financial education tools, including calculators, tutorials, videos and articles on how to manage each phase of their financial life cycle
The technology offers significant benefits for advisors as well. Co-branded for each advisor’s practice, the app represents yet another tool for advisors and plan sponsors to offer their plan participants. The app will also help enhance the advisor-plan participant relationship by providing additional opportunities for communication and interaction on a regular basis.
“Retirement plan participants demand the ability to make financial decisions when they want, where they want,” said Reich. “Understanding this critical need, LPL Financial is excited to present this new tool to help propel the retirement plan advice industry forward in the mobile space.”
