Santa Ana, CA — October 11, 2016 — Daniel Romero from Romero & Levin Wealth Management, Inc. recently attended LPL Financial’s Retirement Partners Annual Conference, an invitation-only event for LPL advisors who focus their business on managing retirement plan business.
The conference brought together more than 220 advisors with LPL executives, providers and industry experts to discuss trends and tips for practice management, with a big focus on transition support for LPL advisors to adhere to the new U.S. Department of Labor fiduciary rule. The conference also provides advisors an opportunity to align with resources from LPL and the firm’s extensive network of providers. Advisors had the opportunity to network and share ideas with peers and attend breakout sessions covering a variety of topics that can help them grow their practices and impact the financial lives of plan participants.
Keynote speakers at this year’s event included Marcus Luttrell, a decorated Navy Seal and author of the New York Times bestseller, “Lone Survivor,” and Dr. Steve Taubman, a bestselling author and mindfulness expert.
“The financial advice industry is going through such significant changes. That makes it more important than ever to be engaged and aligned with the resources and requirements needed to operate my business in the most efficient and effective way,” said Romero. “Saving through employer-provided retirement plans has never been more important to the American worker and I am committed to ensuring that I can leverage the specialized resources and support of LPL through ongoing education like this conference to be able to serve investors’ best interests.”
