Christian J. Garofalo began his financial services career in 2000, upon graduating from John Carroll University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. He has been an independent financial advisor and registered representative his entire working career and has been registered with LPL Financial since 2004. He holds his FINRA Series 7 and 66 securities registrations with LPL Financial and the Series 66 with Tyler-Stone Wealth Management along with the AIF® Accredited Investment Fiduciary® designation maintained by Fi360.
Through LPL Financial, he has access to all that the country’s largest independent broker-dealer* has to offer, including timely financial research and the ability to provide his clients with customized financial advice.
In addition to working with individuals and families with wealth accumulation and retirement income planning, Christian works closely with privately held businesses in various regions of the country to develop and maintain defined benefit and defined contribution 401(K) retirement plans. Given the recent mandates of the DOL, providing employers and plan participants customized advice and guidance has never been more essential in the 401(K) arena. Christian is able to extend 3(21) and 3(38) co-fiduciary services to plan sponsors through the registered investment advisory services of LPL Financial and the Retirement Plan Consulting Program.
Originally from Rochester, NY, Christian now resides in Hudson, OH with his wife, Sarah and two children, Gannyn and Luke.
