Now in its sixth year, the Sponsor Forum brings together LPL's leading product partners to share its strategic vision and plans for the coming year, in relation to partnership opportunities in support of LPL's more than13,500 financial advisors.

Mr. Arnold opened the forum with a presentation on LPL's vision for the future, working together with essential business partners. This was followed by a presentation by Mr. Fetter on the role of technology in LPL's partnership relations, and by a speech by Ms. Khoury on the potential of social media in support of these relationships.
