LPL Financial Branch Celebrates a Decade of Unified Independence
From Captive Wirehouse to Flexible Independence, Richard Dragotta celebrates 10 years of Unified Independence and success
By: Richard Dragotta
Indeed guessing right and being early has positioned Dragotta as one of the largest network of advisor groups at LPL Financial as his network includes over 75 advisors and branches predominately in the tri-state area. “We congratulate Rich on his 10th anniversary at LPL Financial and look forward to continuing to support him as a valued client, says Derek Bruton Managing Director and National Sales Manager for LPL Financial”
During a decade of consolidation and mergers on Wall Street, Dragotta created AdvisorSource which he trademarked to define his local outsourcing solutions which include turnkey expertise in transitioning advisors to the independent model. “I wanted to help liberate other advisors like me that were not just interested in a higher payout but wanted a better quality of life as well as the desire to provide conflict free objective advice without a corporate agenda. Even though we are independent from each other we share a common unity, camaraderie and many economies of scale. As the great Yogi Berra might say, let’s be independent together” says Dragotta.
“I have been fortunate in aligning and partnering with other great advisors and building a dedicated, experienced and professional staff team to implement and execute my vision,” he added. “ I am looking forward to the next decade and again I think I am early in expanding my model towards the what I believe is the future progression of this independent model; hopefully it will work out…..you got to go with your gut”.
