StrateFi Wealth Administration Launches With Assist of LPL Strategic Wealth Providers


SAN DIEGO, Aug 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – LPL Financial LLC (Nasdaq: LPLA) announced today that financial advisors Jason Sherr and Merrick Nguyen have established a new independent practice, StrateFi Wealth Management, by joining LPL Financial’s Strategic Wealth , founded the Services (SWS) model that is tailored to the specific needs of breakaway consultants. The consultants said they served around $ 235 million in advisory, brokerage, and retirement assets *. You join LPL from Wells Fargo Advisors.

Sherr and Nguyen are long-time colleagues who met through the Orange County CAL (UC Berkeley) Alumni Club. They joined their practice about 10 years ago when Sherr wanted to expand his team and Nguyen was looking for growth opportunities. With the assistance of Kim Burdeaux-Neal, Director of Client Relations, they take a team approach to their mission of providing comprehensive financial services and investment advice to help clients grow and maintain their wealth and pass their wealth on to future generations.

The team, based in Irvine, California, and Reno, Nevada, serves a diverse customer base of around 160 households *. Your goal is to control what is controllable, Sherr said. “We cannot control the markets, but we can control how assets are diversified, what to invest in portfolios and other strategies to guide our clients through the complex financial landscape,” said Sherr.

When starting their new practice, it was important for the consultants to find a name that embodied the essence of their firm. “We have chosen to combine the words ‘strategy’ and ‘financial independence’, which represents our strategic approach, our mission and our ultimate goal to help our customers achieve financial independence and lead the life of their choice” said Nguyen.

The consultants strategically planned their step into independence. “It wasn’t ‘when’ but ‘when’ we became independent because we want this to be our last step,” said Sherr. You have chosen to partner with LPL Strategic Wealth Services because of the combination of innovative technology and ongoing management support. They also appreciate that the Breakaway solution removes the constraints of red tape and allows them to serve their customers and grow the business at their own discretion.

“With the SWS model, we have the technology, support and resources to really get started on day one,” said Nguyen. “Our primary goal is to offer our customers improved services.

With the support of the SWS team, we have more time to get in touch with customers, analyze their portfolios and really offer them a differentiated experience. “

All SWS teams have access to LPL’s integrated wealth management platform and the sophisticated resources necessary to run a successful practice, as well as an additional level of continuous, personalized support for day-to-day operations and long-term business management.
