2018 was an active year for LPL and our industry. We saw the passage of the Senior $afe Act, actively promoted a best interest standard of care, advocated for preserving and enhancing incentives for retirement savings, just to name a few. The LPL Government Relations team also launched the LPL 50-State Network made up of LPL advisors and employees across the country. This grassroots network provides a local connection with policymakers in Washington, DC, as well as the states. Please view this video for an overview of our program.

We wish you and yours a Happy Holiday and Prosperous New Year!
