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.”
