CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Jan. 9, 2020 - LPL Financial LLC, a leading retail investment advisory firm and independent broker-dealer, today announced that Envestnet MoneyGuide is the newest technology solution integrated with ClientWorks Connected. Advisors who choose to use the leading financial planning software will now benefit from an enhanced experience, with data flowing seamlessly between the tool and ClientWorks, making it easier and more efficient for advisors to deliver planning services.

'The demand for personalized advice continues to rise, making it more important that advisors have access to technology resources that can help them evolve their practices and increase value with clients. As a partner to our advisors, we are committed to investing in our technology platform to make it a differentiator for their businesses, across models.

MoneyGuide is a top financial planning solution, according to the 2019 national T3 survey. It helps advisors use financial planning to motivate clients to create, implement and maintain investment strategies as they work toward financial wellness. Through integration with ClientWorks, LPL advisors see real-time account values, down to the position level, as well as plan probability in real time. Additionally, plan reports are seamlessly imported back into ClientWorks. The software is available to advisors with single-sign-on functionality, with no extra clicks necessary after logging into ClientWorks, making it easy and effortless to leverage the tool as part of their technology workstation.
