First time investor here. I have plans to move $40k into a BlackRock 60:40 fund through LPL Financial. Any helpful thoughts, considerations, encouragement or warnings? Thanks in advance.

What are the primary differences between Raymond James, LPL, and Wells Fargo for someone considering the Independent channel? Pros and Cons (hybrid broker/RIA model of business)
Raymond James or LPL...biggest goals are more flexibility with regard to marketing/branding, more autonomy and higher payout...in that order. And go!
I’m a managing partner of a hybrid RIA with $2.2B of AUM and control with 85 advisors in 5 states. We custody at TD, Interactive Brokers, & more
Selling book of structured autocalls brokerage..all purschase when market was down with 6-12 month left to mature... 6467848487 cell....LPL preferred

With LPL paying 50 bps to come on board and places like Ameriprise paying up to 300 bps (are you kidding?).... how does a wirehouse or regional advisor adequately assess pros/cons in making the move?
Has anybody heard of LPL Financial? A recruiter reached out and was wondering if anybody have any info about it.
Got a job offer but the pay base is only 5% more than what I make. I’ll be promoted in a few months so I could be possibly making more at my current job.

I’m trying to negotiate but if it doesn’t happen do you think I can find something better or do I do this for a year and exit? I’m 2 YOE
