LPL offers plan to guarantee value of adviser’s business
The plan is designed to prevent financial disruption if an adviser dies or makes some other unexpected exit from the business
LPL Financial has launched what it calls its Assurance Plan to protect the value of an adviser’s business in the event of the adviser’s death, permanent disability or other unplanned exit from the business.
In the case of such an event, LPL said its plan will provide a guaranteed, predetermined minimum purchase price based on a multiple of the adviser’s recurring revenue.
LPL said it also will facilitate the sale of the adviser’s business to another qualified LPL adviser, commission-free, which can provide additional proceeds above the guaranteed amount to the adviser or his or her family.
