Your LPL Financial Advisor

California Coast Financial Services, LLC has a staff of experienced and knowledgeable financial consultants available to meet with you in various branches of California Coast Credit Union.

Unlike advisors in many large brokerage firms, our Consultants are located within your local branch at the credit union, to provide you with the one-on-one relationship and personal attention you have come to expect from California Coast Financial Services. Because of this relationship, you will enjoy the convenience of having more investment choices to choose from, access to a wide range of products and services, and the confidence that all of your financial needs can be addressed in one place.

And because your LPL financial advisors are not required to offer specific proprietary products, you will receive unbiased information and recommendations which are tailored to fit your individual needs.

Our Advisors are registered through LPL Financial, the nation's largest independent broker/dealer* providing you with access to an unlimited amount of resources and industry expertise, helping to provide you with full-service investment and retirement planning with a long-term commitment to help pursue your financial goals.

*As reported in Financial Planning Magazine June 1996-2013, based on total revenues.

As a member of California Coast Credit Union, you are invited to take advantage of a complimentary consultation with one of our California Coast Financial Services Consultants. Together you can discuss your personal planning needs, which may consist of How to Maximize your Retirement Earnings, Tax Deferred Investments, Mutual Funds, Traditional and Roth IRA's, Annuities, 401k Rollovers Strategies, Life Insurance, Education Funding and Retirement Analysis and Planning.
