LPL Financial has hired its first employee advisor since it acquired 33 employee advisors with Allen & Co. and launched the channel in August.
Tiger Blackwell, CFP, has joined LPL as an independent employee advisor from Stifel Nicolaus, where he worked with about $100 million in assets. He has been in the business for 21 years, according to FINRA BrokerCheck.
“It is an honor to welcome Tiger to the LPL family and be his partner as together we change the expectations of the independent space,” according to Rich Steinmeier, who leads business development for LPL.
“LPL is committed to delivering independent solutions designed to meet the needs of advisors wherever they are in the evolution of their practice,” Steinmeier added.
Blackwell’s practice is based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and his work in an office arranged by LPL. Also, he plans to add his daughter to the practice, according to a press release.
