For the past several years, interest in Hybrid Programs has certainly grown sevenfold and LPL (like any other securities firm) is reacting to this trend and certainly going to receive their fair share of the Hybrid Pie. It will be interesting to see what regulatory changes occur in the years ahead and how it might affect the Hybrid Advisor community. Not too many firms exist which offer one clearing/one platform for service. Schwab nor TD clear for broker-dealers so their Hybrid Program is somewhat a hodge-podge system.
