Held in Boston from July 28 to July 31 focus10 was one of the industry’s largest gatherings of independent financial advisors, and remains the industry’s premier sales and education event. Approximately 4,500 attendees from around the country assembled for the opportunity to learn new strategies and skills, expand knowledge in numerous product areas and network with peers and industry experts. They also heard from influential speakers who addressed current events and financial industry trends. The speakers included President Bill Clinton, Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric and Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic.

Supporting our independent advisors as they help their clients achieve the American Dream on their terms remains our overarching mission at LPL Financial.”
