Sigma Financial Corporation

Sigma Financial Corporation established in 1983. The following year, Sigma Planning Corporation (SPC) was formed to function as an SEC-registered investment advisor. Originally intended as a means of providing Sigma representatives with fee-based planning opportunities, the firm currently offers numerous money management services, allowing brokers to compete in the rapidly growing fee-based money management business. Sigman remains one of the few remaining truly independent firms within an industry characterized by mergers, acquisitions and mega-corporations. Over the years, Sigma has steadfastly rejected acquisition offers, preferring to remain autonomous and self-directed. In 2001, the firm entered into a joint venture with Midland National Life Insurance to form a captive broker-dealer (Sammons Securities) that would service Midland National Life agents. Sigma currently has approximately 500 brokers.
