CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LPL Financial LLC announced today that financial advisor Ivan Hendricks, AAMS, has joined LPL, aligning with Strategic Wealth Services. He reported having served approximately $280 million AUM* and joins from Merrill Lynch.
Hendricks turned a passion for investing into a successful 16-year career of financial advisory. Through the influence of his financially astute grandfather, Hendricks was captivated by stories of investing and learned valuable nuggets of financial advice. After pursuing a degree in finance, he combined his love for investing with his desire to help people, and began guiding his clients along their financial journeys. After 16 years, Hendricks made the decision to elevate his practice by affiliating with an organization that would empower his work while respecting his ability to run his business on his terms and for the ultimate benefit of his clients.
“I spent almost a year investigating my options, going through the pros and cons and LPL always came out on top. They bring such a depth of resources through their Strategic Wealth Services that helps me do better for my clients,” said Hendricks. “Their personal approach really stood out and is completely authentic. There is a huge support system. I feel like I have a brain trust and all hands on deck behind me. It’s a well-run operation that lets me focus on what’s in the best interest for my clients.”
That freedom to do what is best for his clients is encapsulated in his company’s name: Candor Wealth Partners. Honesty and transparency are stated hallmarks of Hendricks’ business model.
“The ability to do what best serves my clients is so vitally important to me. LPL frees advisors to do what they love, while providing integrated services and support such as innovative planning software,” he added. “It’s a win/win.”
“We’ve developed comprehensive and diverse financial platforms designed with deep insights into what advisors need,” said Scott Posner, LPL executive vice president, Business Development. “Giving advisors what they need to advance their business on their terms is one of our mission-critical objectives. Today’s ever-changing financial landscape demands proven scalability and performance. We couldn’t be happier to have that acknowledged by Ivan and welcome him to the LPL team.”
Outside of advisory, Hendricks enjoys spending time with his family and pets, and engages in a variety of extracurricular activities. He loves spending time in nature and creating music and art. He has also volunteered in a variety of charity and community projects. Young people and families in transition hold a special place in his heart.
