As the #1 distributor broker-dealer in the world for variable life insurance, The Leaders Group maintains a foothold in the industry and ranks fifth in overall insurance revenue in InvestmentNews’ latest annual independent broker-dealer survey. The Leaders Group is also in the top 20 of InvestmentNews’ broker-dealers ranked by pre-tax earnings. Data is collected from firms that participated in the InvestmentNews 2019 IBD surveys.
Back in early 2012, we launched our Road to 1000 initiative, setting what we thought was a nearly unattainable goal of more than doubling the number of affiliated financial professionals. While the strategies and marketing may have changed along the way, I am thrilled that with the hard work of our team and a dedication to ‘doing the right thing,’ we have arrived at this important milestone.Sean Wickersham, President and Chief Marketing Officer
