(NASDAQ:LPLA), today announced that ITI Strategies, Inc. (ITI), an independent financial advisory firm, has joined LPL’s broker-dealer platform.

We can build upon that foundation and take our business further now that we have access to LPL’s enhanced technology and robust tech support services and compliance support from Private Advisor Group.”
