LPL invites 180 of its bigger-book reps to Dana Point as part of its latest Fortigent-fortified bid to move upmarket

An interesting article marred by sloppy copy. An editor needs to go into this story and clean it up a bit. It is a grammatical mess in a number of places.

It remains to be seen if LPL can truly make in-roads with high-net-worth and ultrahigh-net-worth investors and the advisors serving them in a meaningful way. The company is plagued [still] by service and technology challenges. Advisors serving the mass affluent have a tough enough time getting correct answers from the service centers and internal business units for relatively straight-forward matters. One can only wonder how well equipped it is to handle the more exotic and complex the HNW/UHNW client presents. Despite all the soothing comments coming from executives, it really has a long way to go before in service and tech before it can be taken seriously in this segment.
