CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LPL Financial LLC (Nasdaq:LPLA} announced today that Riolo Financial Group has joined LPL Financial’s broker-dealer, corporate registered investment advisor (RIA) and custodial platforms. The team reported having served approximately $250 million in advisory and brokerage assets*. They join LPL from Ameriprise Financial.
Based in New City, N.Y., the planning-based practice was founded in 2014 when industry veteran Dominick Riolo CFP®, teamed up with his son, Frank Riolo CFP®. With the move to LPL, their longtime colleague Lisa Sherman CFP®, officially joins the team. The three financial advisors are assisted by two office support staff members. “We work to make sure each client has a roadmap that takes their entire financial picture into account and adapts to their changing needs,” Dominick Riolo said.
After extensive due diligence, which included interviewing six firms and speaking with their respective advisors, the team chose to partner with LPL for the next chapter of their business. “With so much consolidation in the financial advice industry, it was important for us to affiliate with a leading wealth management firm. As a publicly traded firm, we believe LPL can provide our business and clients with long-term stability in this ever-changing world,” Riolo said. “Additionally, the move to LPL allows us to have more freedom in how we operate. LPL fully supports its advisors as independent business owners; we aren’t measured against other advisors, and LPL does not create conflict by offering proprietary financial products.”
Scott Posner, LPL executive vice president, Business Development, stated, “On behalf of the entire LPL community, we extend a warm welcome to Dom, Frank and Lisa. We are proud they recognized our stability as a benefit to their practice and clients. We are committed to our advisors’ success and will continue to invest in innovative capabilities and robust business solutions designed to help them thrive. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with the entire team at Riolo Financial Group.”
