SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – August 10, 2015 – DFPG Investments, Inc. (DFPG:, a national, independent broker-dealer, announced Monday that the firm has recently added 20 new registered representatives, which represent eight offices, located across six states, and that collectively manage an estimated $425 million in client assets.

“On the one hand, we’ve been fortunate to benefit from some of the industry unrest where reps are seeking more competitive solutions,” says Mike Bendix, DFPG’s CEO, who notes that the 20 reps joining DFPG come from multiple broker-dealers.

Bendix continues, “On the other hand, DFPG has deliberately positioned ourselves in the market to be an obvious choice for reps that want to maintain their independence, while operating a traditional or hybrid model, and who want to deepen their capabilities in alternative investments, particularly investment real estate.”

Bendix, who is currently serving as President-elect of the Alternative & Direct Investments Securities Association (ADISA: adds that DFPG, which operates out of Salt Lake City, Utah, also appeals to investment representatives that value the firm’s unique culture, commitment to compliance, and competitive payouts, in addition to being recognized as an industry leader in alternative investments and investment real estate.

“DFPG is a value-add partner for reps who are seeking to align with a broker-dealer that offers the culture, resources, and commitment to help build their businesses,” says Bendix.

Ryan Smith, DFPG’s President and CCO, says that “we get a lot of inquiries from reps that feel lost in the shuffle or who feel like they aren’t getting the support they need from their broker-dealer to be successful.” Smith continues, “Frankly, we completely understand that DFPG isn’t the right fit for every rep that calls. But, when we determine a match, we are very confident in what we can provide them.”

Smith was recently awarded one of only three scholarships into the Certified Regulatory and Compliance Professional (CRCP) program that was established by both FINRA and the Wharton School of Business.

Referring to the fact that each of DFPG’s principals (Bendix, Smith, and Dan Luke) are producing reps and operate their own branch office, Smith says that “When reps learn that we’re producers, who understand how to build and grow our practices, they begin to see that the value DFPG offers has been developed through similar experiences, needs, and ideals, as their own.”
