Lincoln Financial Network, the retail distribution division of Lincoln Financial Group, has expanded Office of Practice Management (OPM), designed to help independent advisors more efficiently operate and grow their practices through a combination of resources.

Lincoln Financial said that the OPM focuses on the critical components of a practice including; strategic business planning; marketing support; compliance consulting; staffing support; advanced technology and continued training and education.

Lincoln Financial Network national strategic advisor Seth Wolnek said that through the OPM advisers will have access to a range of internal and external resources to help them bring their practices to the next level.

"This will be accomplished through strategic seminars, new technology, learning programs, and research that provide insight into various trends in financial planning, regulations, legislations, and best practices.

"The current environment presents numerous opportunities, and we are dedicated to providing our advisors with the resources necessary to succeed, with their clients, in this ever-changing profession," Wolnek said.
