DFPG Honored as One of Utah’s Fastest-Growing Companies

Utah Business magazine has named DFPG Investments to their annual Fast 50 list, which recognizes Utah’s fastest-growing companies.

The Fast 50 honorees are selected through a combination of criteria, including a minimum of 5 years in business, revenue growth, and total revenue. Utah Business magazine will recognize DFPG at the annual Fast 50 awards luncheon and will feature DFPG in their September issue.

“We are thrilled to have been recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Utah,” says Ryan Smith, DFPG’s president. “Our growth is a reflection of our hard-working reps and advisors, our dedicated home office staff, and the core values we place at the center of everything we do.”

DFPG’s footprint spans nationwide, with registered representatives and investment advisors located across the country. As a broker-dealer and registered investment advisor (RIA), DFPG provides a full-service platform that enables its financial advisors to more effectively serve their investors. DFPG is recognized within the financial services industry for its expertise and due diligence in alternative investments, with a focus on securitized real estate.

Smith described DFPG’s growth in recent years by saying, “Our growth story is characterized by a simple formula. DFPG created a focused and deep expertise, and then we built a brand around it. Our brand has come to be recognized as an industry leader in our segment of the market. The benefit of this approach is that, so long as DFPG delivers on our brand promise, the demand generated within the market will create continued opportunity.”

In addition to being awarded Utah Business magazine’s 2017 Fast 50, DFPG was also including Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000, which recognizes America’s fastest-growing private companies.

DFPG Investments, Inc. is a national, full-service, independent broker-dealer and registered investment advisor (RIA) that specializes in working with representatives who want to incorporate alternative investments, with an emphasis in investment real estate, in their business.

DFPG Makes Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000

DFPG Investments will be included in Inc. Magazine’s prestigious Inc. 5000, which recognizes America’s fastest-growing private companies.

In addition to be included in Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000, Utah Business magazine awarded DFPG its 2017 Fast 50 award, which recognizes the fastest-growing companies in Utah.

Mike Bendix, DFPG’s CEO, says that DFPG’s inclusion in the Inc. 5000 is an important milestone for the firm. “The pedigree of past Inc. 5000 recipients, along with the national nature of the list, makes this a very special recognition for our company. But it’s just a milestone for us, we have a lot more to accomplish.”

Along with acting as DFPG’s CEO, Bendix is the former president of the Alternatives & Direct Investment Securities Association (ADISA: www.adisa.org), which is the nation’s largest alternatives investments association. Bendix is still very active at ADISA, serving on its board, and was awarded the ACE Award, which is the association’s career achievement award, in 2014.

“Our vision for DFPG has always been to create something special,” continues Bendix. “Since our inception, DFPG intended to be a values-driven organization with a long-term plan. The plan is fairly simple: DFPG wants to find financial advisors whose clients’ needs necessitate the experience and expertise we offer, primarily in alternative investments, and then ensure we always follow our core values.”

Bendix adds, “As we continue to execute our plan, recognition and awards, like the Inc. 5000, are great milestones to track our progress. But the real gauge for our success will be in continuing to deliver the value we work each day to create, to follow our core values by placing investors’ needs first, and to align ourselves with industry partners who share these same ideals.”
