Sure would be nice to have data, research evidence and proof and hard-nosed critical discussions of the business aspects of this hyper-competitive, heavily regulated and important business but I guess LPL sees themselves more in the showbiz and entertainment business. Maybe they are right.

Does LPL think advisors need to be entertained? How are a film director’s off the cuff remarks useful for anything?

How about some hard numbers on social media for example, or at least case studies?

Is there a firm talking seriously to RIAs about the (many) challenging and serious issues they face? Apparently, not from LPL.

There’s a marketing and recruitment opportunity — the non-entertainment focused conference.

Surprised the reporter isn’t thinking more critically here.
