Welcome to THE NETWORK

THE NETWORK began more than 25 years ago, as a "study group" of top advisors brought together by our founder and chairman, Jim Herrington, to exchange ideas and share best practices.  Jim identified the need for independent financial planners and investment advisors to network with their peers, and in creating the original "NETWORK," he drew on his personal production experience. 

His vision attracted other producers who shared a common bond of excellence and the desire to elevate their practices.  Today it has grown into one of the largest branch offices at LPL Financial.*  Please take a look around our website or give us a call at 650-571-1934 to learn more.

* Based on revenues, as of 2015.
