The two companies are in discussions regarding a possible transaction, Global Retirement Partners Managing Partner Geoff White told the publication.
LPL Financial earlier considered closing the platform, saying it didn't serve a "substantial portion" of advisers nor met "the return on investment needed to continue," the publication reported, citing Andy Kalbaugh, the company's managing director and divisional president of national sales and consulting.
