LPL Financial says Randall Pickett has joined its employee advisor model from Oppenheimer, where he had $180 million in client assets.

Pickett and wealth associate Leslie Stephenson have joined Linsco by LPL Financial and are the second team located in its new Dallas office.

Pickett and Stephenson, who have worked together for more than six years, operate as The Pickett Group of LPL Financial.

“A key part of what I do is to really make sure I understand what’s important to my clients, and then work directly with them to develop a holistic financial plan and investment strategy designed for their specific situations, time frames and risk tolerance,” Pickett said in a statement.

Pickett, who started his career as an institutional bond salesman, has nearly 35 years of experience providing financial consulting and wealth management services for high-net-worth families, individuals, corporations and foundations, according to LPL.

“The entire focus of LPL is empowering advisors so we can focus on our clients, and they back up that commitment with investments in their technology, services, business resources and more,” Pickett said in a statement about the move. “We’re excited to have access to a wide range of offerings that will allow us to provide our clients with differentiated experiences.”

With Linsco, advisors maintain complete autonomy of their brand and business, and how to best run their financial practice, according to LPL. They also have access to key resources including seamless digital services, hands-on marketing and administrative support, and an experienced branch management team who serve as advocates and thought partners, LPL adds.

“We’re looking forward to leveraging LPL’s integrated wealth management platform and innovative technology, particularly their financial planning offering, which will not only make delivering planning services easier, but also more efficient,” Pickett said in the statement.

“Looking ahead, it’s my goal to build a team that supports our clients as they work toward their financial aspirations, and LPL’s platform gives me many more opportunities to do just that,” he added.

Pickett has been in the industry since 1988 and has been registered with eight firms, according to his BrokerCheck record.

The Pickett Group of LPL Financial is the second team to join the Linsco office in Dallas, following Bespoke Private Wealth of LPL Financial, which launched last month.

The Dallas office will have space for several more advisors in the future and is expected to become one of Linsco’s larger sites, according to LPL.
