LPL Financial announced this week it was doing more belt-tightening and has eliminated 70 jobs and is delaying salary increases for employees for at least 6 months.

LPL’s CEO, Mark Cassidy, announced in October to investors that the firm intended to keep a sharp eye on growth of expenses during 2016 and to launch a  $500 million share buy-back. 

These cost saving measures no doubt are at the behest of, and part of an effort by Marcato Capital, the hedge fund that purchased a 6.3% stake in LPL, to improve the bottom line. After all, hedge funds don’t make huge investments in companies to have them stay lax on the bottom line.
