Integrating Three Circles
of Financial Solutions on One Platform
“Valmark is the pre-eminent broker dealer for hybrid firms (multi-disciplinary, selling life insurance AND investment products). Other firms may say they service both sides of your business, but they usually are very inadequate in one or the other. Valmark services life insurance as well as ANYONE in the industry, and they have robust capabilities on the investment side, plus they offer TOPS®, which really rounds out the offering.“

The Valmark Financial Group Family of Companies
Each of these companies brings a package of solutions, services and products that allow Members to better serve their clients.
A Personal Relationship Means “You First”
The relationship your firm enjoys as a Valmark Member is tailored to YOUR strengths, YOUR goals, and YOUR business. Our flexibility is how you know we respect your expertise.
While many broker dealers may offer a wide range of products and services, their idea of “value added” often means giving you a list of “800 numbers”. At Valmark, you receive a dedicated team of internal professionals who provide integrated support for both your insurance and investment business through a central source. With one phone call, your internal team can coordinate all aspects of your case or inquiry – including technical and marketing support, case design, provider questions, software and online support, underwriting, compliance, client service and more.
HIGH TOUCH MEANS HIGH RETENTION
What is also indicative of the high value we place on our relationships with our Members is our turnover rate of only 1%, which is one tenth of that experienced by other independent broker-dealers.
Today, our average Member Firm generates approximately five times the total revenue that they did two decades ago. This is a strong testament to the sound and collaborative relationships we have built with our Firms, the continued alignment we have with our Members and their clients, and our steadfast commitment to staying flexible and ahead of changes taking place in our industry.
