LPL Was Not Immune To The Industry's Third-Quarter Slump Hot

LPL attracted 12% more asset flows in the recent quarter than it did in the summer of 2010, but total AUM declined 7% on a quarter-to-quarter basis.

 

These numbers reflect the third-quarter slump we have seen from other massive national advisory firms, UBS and Raymond James being notable exceptions.

 

Interestingly, LPL also seems to be shifting toward high-net-worth markets. Its new recruits are managing a lot more money -- 50% more, on average -- than their more established colleagues.

 

While those new advisors still account for only a small proportion of the firm's overall production, they are definitely changing its formerly middle-class profile.

 

And with LPL's resources behind them, they might pose a more serious competitive threat than ever to advisors who've built their own business catering to these relatively scarce clients.
