Broker Check

LPL Financial



KEEPING YOU INFORMED.

You may have recently heard – either from us or in the media -- about an agreement between Macquarie Financial Holdings Pty Ltd. and LPL Financial Holdings, Inc. to jointly acquire Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc. It is our priority to keep you informed as details become available and to share what the acquisition may mean for you.

As you know, we are independent financial advisors affiliated with Waddell & Reed, Inc. (WRI), a broker-dealer and registered investment advisor. WRI provides support to our business as we work directly with you. After the acquisition, LPL Financial LLC (LPL) will provide similar support services. 

LPL Financial is one of the nation’s leading financial services companies and a publicly traded company under ticker symbol LPLA. The firm’s mission is rooted in the belief that objective financial guidance is a fundamental need for everyone. LPL doesn’t offer proprietary investment products or engage in investment banking activities; this means advisors affiliated with LPL aren’t pressured or influenced by LPL to sell its products. Thousands of financial advisors nationwide can rely on the firm’s tools and resources to help them provide financial guidance and recommendations to address their clients’ needs.

Our primary focus and core philosophy is to always act in your best interests. We sincerely value your steadfast dedication and will continue to serve your financial interests.

We deeply appreciate your relationship and are sincerely grateful for your patience over the next several months while we learn and grow together. 

Sincerely,

Craig Johlfs & the Johlfs Financial Group Team

WHAT WILL CHANGE FOR YOU?


First, your account statements will look different, and we can go over those together if you want so you understand what you’re looking at.

Second, you’ll have access to LPL’s Account View technology, which provides you with secure, 24-hour online access to your investments via computer, tablet, or smartphone. We will go over this technology together during a Virtual Zoom Meeting in August.

WHAT WILL REMAIN THE SAME

You’ll continue to receive the same financial guidance and communications from me and my team. As always, we’ll continue to assess your financial future based on any expected or unexpected changes in your circumstances or goals, as well as what’s happening in the markets and economy. Your best interests remain our top priority.
