LPL Financial is a member of FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). Unlike most major Wall Street firms, LPL Financial does not offer their own investment products, so they are objective in their research and outlook.

His passion for skiing remains as he was a member of the U.S. Ski Team and competed on the World Trophy Freestyle Tour for six years and was a World Freestyle Champion in 1977.
