LPL announced that Mineola, N.Y.-based Demetrios Paraskevopoulos has joined its broker-dealer, RIA and custodial platforms.

Paraskevopoulos joins LPL from Ameriprise, where he managed $230 million in client assets, in order to pivot to a more independent, entrepreneurial approach to his business, according to the announcement.

“My goal with clients is simply to take care of them wherever they may be on their financial journey,” Paraskevopoulos said in released comments. “For me, it’s all about the client experience and making their finances less complicated. I find out what matters most to each client and then work side-by-side with them to create a personalized, easy to understand financial plan that puts them on the best path toward financial success.”

Based in San Diego, LPL now serves more than 22,000 advisors, according to the announcement, at approximately 1,100 enterprises and 560 RIAs.
