This is the season premiere of FPPad Tech Tour!
Note: Treat this video as you would treat a TV show. FPPad Tech Tour is committed to telling the stories of people who are working hard to support financial advisors. These stories can’t be told in a two-minute video. So fire up your Apple TV, Chromecast, or your smart TV, kick off your shoes, and enjoy this up-close-and-personal video series.
Our first stop on FPPad Tech Tour is in Charlotte, North Carolina, where we met up with Victor Fetter, CIO of LPL Financial to learn about what attracted him to manage LPL’s technology solutions for the nation’s largest independent broker dealer.
