Independence

As independent advisors, we have no obligation to use firm promoted products or are incentivized to follow home-office initiatives. Working with an advisor at GWM Advisors means you’re working with a professional who focuses solely on serving your interests and not the interests of a parent company or firm. This means that when you invest through one of our advisors, you can benefit from:

  • Objective guidance and advice: With access to leading independent research, your advisor can help you make informed, objective decisions.
  • Investment choice and flexibility: LPL Financial does not offer any proprietary products, so your advisor can help you choose unbiased investment products and strategies from many of the nation's leading investment managers.
  • Convenient account access: You can manage your account online anytime, day or night, from the convenience of your own home or office. In addition, easy-to-read account statements keep you informed of account activity and performance.
  • Supported by LPL Financial: With the backing of LPL Financial, the nation’s largest independent broker/dealer,* you know that your advisor has access to all of the cutting edge tools and research he/she needs to help turn your life’s aspirations into financial realities.

When you work with one of our advisors, you can rest assured knowing that the advice you receive is tailored to work towards your goals - not the goals of a Wall Street firm.
