Helping Experienced Reps. Become More Successful!

At The Meckenstock Group, we've built our model for growth around independent producers who are established in the financial industry as experienced advisors, life insurance or annuity practitioner's. The common theme is we seek the one who desires a Broker/Dealer relationship that doesn't stifle their creativity in the markets they have expertise. Associating with Independent Financial Group LLC can help bring stability and confidence back to the registered products world that we work in. Independent is not just a name...we truly are!

With more than 500 representatives, IFG is very selective in the advisors that become affiliated. Our branch focus is on quality producers, versus quantity of producers. As iron sharpens iron, our network of successful advisors has strengthened the Broker/Dealer in terms of knowledge and expertise. We have leaders in the world of finance, insurance, annuities and marketing involved with our group. If you are seeking a change and new relationship with people that care, give us a call, 1-800-752-2439.



About The Meckenstock Group

Bobb and his late brother David formed Main Street Securities, LLC in 1999, as a producer friendly Broker Dealer. They built the firm to 70 representatives managing $1 billion for clients. At the pinnacle of the firm’s success, in 2004 Dave was diagnosed with cancer and died 14 months later. The challenges of running a broker dealer without his expertise became too complicated. After this personal loss and the impending recession of late 2008, Bobb decided to make life simpler and folded his broker dealership in 2010. After a thorough search, he was able to move his group to a compatible broker-dealer, Independent Financial Group LLC of San Diego, CA.

This new association will provide an array of innovative and leading edge solutions for the financial challenges that clients and representatives face. Our clients benefit from an expanded product list and our representatives benefit from a dedicated staff in Hays, KS and San Diego to promptly process their business. As OSJ of the Main Street branch office, Bobb uses his expertise in estate, financial planning and money management to assist his personal clients as well as other top advisors in his branch and around the country.

The Meckenstock Group is a privately owned financial planning firm with the home office located in Hays, KS. We have 3 distinct divisions: The Meckenstock Group for traditional life insurance and annuities, Main Street Advisors for our registered investment advisors, and Independent Financial Group of San Diego CA. is our broker dealer for all registered products.
