LPL Financial has chosen Guardian as a strategic partner for their Retirement Plus Program, according to “Guardian Selected as Strategic Partner for LPL Financial’s Retirement Plus Program.” This press release, from the Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, says that as one of the biggest and longest standing mutual life insurance companies in America, Guardian will make their best annuities and 401k plans available to a wider audience. LPL Financial is the “largest network of independent broker-dealers in the nation,” providing the best products for retirement and a support system for independent financial advisers who are focused on retirement plans.
Exhaustive research was done on numerous companies before Guardian was selected by LPL Financial. Guardian’s Retirement Solution Business recently underwent a large transformation which added to their senior management staff, improved their product offerings, and increased their entire sales force. This partnership will make Guardian’s wide array of retirement products such as 401k annuities available along with adviser training and additional marketing for LPL Financial. Both companies believe this partnership will help them meet their goal of providing clients with the highest quality and most flexible retirement products they can.
