Salt Lake City, Utah – January 31, 2015 – Mike Bendix, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of DFPG Investments, Inc. (DFPG), has been selected as the Alternative & Direct Investment Securities Association’s (ADISA) 2016 President-elect. ADISA, formerly known as REISA, is a national trade association with over 20,000 members who offer and manage alternative investments.

The announcement that Bendix will serve as President-elect comes months after he was awarded ADISA’s 2014 “A Champion of Excellence” (ACE) award. ADISA’s annual ACE award recognizes an ADISA member who has reached the pinnacle of their career through accomplishments in their professional life, within the community, and the advancement of the industry and alternative investments.

In response to being named 2016 President-elect, Bendix said, “I am proud to be a member of ADISA, along with all the things this association does for its members and for investors. I want to thank my family, my business colleagues at DFPG, and my fellow ADISA members for this special opportunity.”

Prior to being named President-elect, Bendix served in several ADISA capacities, including the Executive Committee, the Due Diligence Forum, the Broker-Dealer Advisory Council, the Membership Committee, the Education Committee, and the Legislative & Regulatory Committee.

Bendix says that the alternative and direct investments segment of the investment industry is often misunderstood by both financial professionals and individual investors. He says ADISA “exists to promote education” and “raise the standards of integrity” among those professionals offering or managing alternative investments.

Alternative investments typically include non-traded REITs, real estate partnerships, real estate funds, Delaware statutory trusts (DSTs), tenant-in-common interests, oil and gas interests, and other securitized real estate investments.

Bendix brings over 25 years of experience in the real estate and financial services industries. He currently serves as the CEO of DFPG, a national, full-service, independent broker-dealer, and as President of Bridge Equities, Inc., which is a branch of DFPG.
