CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LPL Financial LLC announced today that Floe Financial Partners has returned to LPL Financial’s broker-dealer, corporate registered investment advisor (RIA) and custodial platforms. The Floe team reported having served approximately $345 million in advisory, brokerage and retirement plan assets*. They join from Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network.
Since 1987, Floe Financial Partners has provided wealth management and financial planning to individuals, families, charities and corporations. With a focus on personalization for each client, the team is experienced in providing independent financial management and advice in investment planning, risk management, retirement planning, college funding and estate conservation. Operating out of Pasadena, Calif., financial advisors Robert Floe and Marjan Neyestani Khazra have a combined 65+ years of industry experience. They are joined by Directors Chase Edwards and Anthony Minero, along with support staff Leslie Salazar, Victoria Ditmer, Samuel Kempner and Nicolas Saltz.
As part of their efforts to connect and personalize their services, the group frequently brings their clients together for events. With a passion for theater, opera and classical music, Floe often performs songs during these special occasions, showcasing the team’s commitment to fostering both professional and personal relationships with clients.
As they began looking for a partner who shared their commitment to providing differentiated experiences for clients, Floe Financial Partners interviewed 18 firms before returning home to LPL Financial. “What resonated with us was seeing how much LPL has evolved over the years, as well as their commitment to investing back into the business. LPL is planning for the future with such innovative technology and digital capabilities,” Floe said. “The relationships we’ve built with our clients span years—some even decades—so it was important to align with a firm that will support them, both now and for generations to come. Our team is excited to take advantage of LPL’s integrated technology, including new types of reporting and enhanced portfolio management services, designed to help us really differentiate our client service.”
From day one, the Floe team will tap into LPL Business Solutions to help them run a more efficient practice. They are using Admin Solutions to reduce daily tasks and optimize client communication, providing their in-house support with a highly skilled LPL administrative professional. They are also utilizing Marketing Solutions to help evolve their brand, reach new prospects and nurture client relationships through customized digital campaigns. Once fully on board and settled, the team is planning to tap into M&A Solutions to help them grow quickly.
Floe is passionate about helping others become successful in the financial services industry. He plans to add junior advisors to his team, and he’s also looking into conference speaking opportunities.
Scott Posner, LPL executive vice president, Business Development, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Floe Financial Partners back into the LPL community. What really stands out about this group is how dedicated they are to giving back to the community—from volunteerism to charitable donations—and providing clients with a one of a kind service. We’re honored that Robert, Marjan and team recognized our capabilities, including our marketing and admin solutions, and chose us to help them continue building their practice. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Floe Financial Partners.”
