Are you a team player with a growth mindset? Are you interested in working on meaningful projects? Do you want to work with cutting-edge technology? Are you interested in being part of a team that is working to transform and do things differently? If so, LPL Financial is the place for you!
LPL Financial (Nasdaq: LPLA) was founded on the principle that the firm should work for the advisor, and not the other way around. Today, LPL is a leader* in the markets we serve, supporting more than 18,000 financial advisors, 800 institution-based investment programs and 450 independent RIA firms nationwide. We are steadfast in our commitment to the advisor-centered model and the belief that Americans deserve access to personalized guidance from a financial advisor. At LPL, independence means that advisors have the freedom they deserve to choose the business model, services, and technology resources that allow them to run their perfect practice. And they have the freedom to manage their client relationships, because they know their clients best. Simply put, we take care of our advisors, so they can take care of their clients.
This role is a VP position on our Advisor Solutions product team responsible for our advisor platform, ClientWorks. Specifically, this role will oversee our account lifecycle management suite of capabilities and members of the small product team responsible for supporting that suite.
ClientWorks is our comprehensive advisor platform designed — and continually refined — to help financial advisors run their business more efficiently. This intuitive system offers a single location to access all client account types, access data, and process business. It includes tools for account opening, client management, trading, and more.
Our job on the Advisor Solutions team is to ensure that ClientWorks continues to improve by evolving with the changing needs of our advisors and continuously simplifies and streamlines the work they do everyday in our system.
