Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) August 03, 2015
Advicent Solutions, the leading provider of SaaS-based technology for the financial services industry, today announced that the company has been selected to participate in LPL Financial’s new Vendor Affinity Program.
LPL, the nation’s largest independent broker dealer, launched the Vendor Affinity Program last week at the Focus 2015 conference. The program is designed to help LPL advisors reduce the complexity and costs of running their businesses. The program offers a centralized list of vendors who have been reviewed by LPL and have agreed to provide their products and services to LPL advisors at preferred prices. Advicent was named a vendor on the program based on advisor experience, software versatility, compliance and security requirements.
“We recognize that technology is a major contributor to creating increased efficiency and driving greater productivity in our clients’ businesses,” said Victor Fetter, LPL Financial managing director and chief information officer. “Being able to connect LPL clients with leading technology solution providers adds a new dimension to the level of service and support we can provide to clients to help them manage and grow their businesses.”
Loren Brockhouse, Advicent’s senior vice president of sales said, “Today’s market landscape requires financial advisors to provide excellent advice and innovate at the same time. By partnering with industry leaders, such as LPL, Advicent equips advisors with the tools necessary to make impactful changes in both their businesses and the lives of their clients.”
Advicent’s inclusion in the initiative goes hand in hand with the company’s core mission to enable everyone to understand and impact their financial future.
