A post-IPO good news story. Always fortunate to be in a growth market.

A couple comments. The success IFP has enjoyed the past few years could not have been achieved without the partnership and affiliation with LPL. They are not, and never have been, competitors of IFP. Our relationship is one of two partners, servicing the needs of our advisors and clients and LPL had been extremely supportive of our efforts to grow our firm. In my opinion, the LPL hybrid platform is the most independent and robust program available because they bring resources to the table that most other BD’s can only dream of providing.

We are extremely pleased with our partnership with LPL and look forward to continuing that relationship for many years to come.
