More than twenty five years as an independent investment professional with an affinity for solving complex problems has led to our unique process. Rather than being a cheerleader for a specific market or product, our focus is on protecting and growing wealth regardless of market condition.

Investors save and take risk not for the pleasure of owning stocks or bonds, but for the purpose of being financially independent. We see the various markets we participate in as simply tools in that pursuit – a means to an end. To learn how this method of investing can benefit you, call today and schedule an in-office or online appointment.

PLC Asset Management has a broker/dealer affiliation with LPL Financial, LLC (LPL). By partnering with LPL, we are able to access a tremendous range of independent investment research, wealth management strategy, and investment options.

Trade processing, clearance, client reporting and other systems are also performed by LPL. LPL Financial, LLC is subject to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and other principal exchanges of which it is a member.

LPL Financial, LLC is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), a federal nonprofit corporation that protects customer assets in the unlikely event that a member broker/dealer–RIA should fail to meet its financial obligations.
As a result, if your broker/dealer–RIA should fail, and LPL fails, cash awaiting reinvestment and all securities held in your account are protected by SIPC coverage up to $500,000 (limited to $250,000 for claims in cash). Coverage does not protect against a decline in the market value of securities.
