He was instrumental in helping LPL grow into the largest independent broker/dealer in the United States bringing in hundreds of new branch offices and many financial institution (banking) relationships. These independent offices and financial institutions receive technological support, research, training, legal and compliance support, which allows LPL to bring “Wall Street to Main Street”.
Joe changed his affiliation with LPL in 1999 when he transitioned from an employee to an independent business owner and client of LPL. He has operated as a LPL Registered Principal, and Owner of Delano Financial Management since then.
Aside from private investment management for retail clients, Delano Financial Management (DFM) also provides management services to a dozen LPL Financial Advisors serving both retail clients and working through several financial institutions throughout the state of Massachusetts, with headquarters located in Marlborough, MA.
