With BlackRock ahead and blue ocean behind, LPL finds its robo comfort zone
With the 150 basis-point-plus price of Guided Wealth Portfolios, LPL's robo plan doesn't look so robo, except for the onboarding
LPL is caught in between a brokerage and advisory business model which serves neither well. A low cost, high value added advisory business model is at odds with a high cost low value added brokerage business model. To reconcile the differences means fees must come way down and the use of advanced technology to greatly enhance and advance the advisory services value proposition will reorder the industry around the consumer’s best interest. This is the free market at work. All likely viewed by b/ds as heresy.
