Anybody ever heard of this fraternal organization? They have financial advisors, sell insurance and investments. Talked to one of their recruiters today. Not considering working for them, just curious as to who and what they are.

A friend of mine in Alabama mentioned them about a year ago, don't know much about them though..

I think they hosted a client event at Hardee's when I worked there in High School if I remember correctly. I'm not kidding.

I've run into them a little in our market.  Seem to be strictly annuity and whole life guys, with a big emphasis on recruiting, kind of like the old A.L. Williams approach, without the marriage to Franklin Templeton funds.

They've got an office in the suburb I live in but my mentor didn't even mention them when we were talking about FA firms in town.

How can you mention "whole life guys" in the same breath as A.L. Williams.   I'll assume that you simply meant from the recruiting angle.

Thanks for reminding me of one of my favorite opening movie scenes of all time:
