Private Advisor Group

Brightworks is proud to align with Private Advisor Group of Morristown, NJ. It was founded by Patrick Sullivan and John Hyland, who saw the need for greater support for independent advisors, such as ourselves. Recognizing that compliance is of significant importance, Brightworks selected Private Advisor Group to add another level of protection for our clients.

Today, Private Advisor Group is comprised of a network of high end advisors with over $30 billion in assets over management. Securities offered through LPL Financial, member FINRA/SIPC. Investment advice offered through Private Advisor Group, a registered investment advisor. Private Advisor Group and Brightworks Wealth Management are separate entities from LPL Financial.
