From 2016-2020, Symmetry Financial Group has had the unique privilege and honor to be on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies. This list, published annually, is Inc.’s ranking of the 5,000 private companies in American with highly proven track records when it comes to growth and performance. And, as of this August, Symmetry Financial Group is one of a handful of private companies who have now earned this achievement five years in a row, with its inclusion in the Inc. 5000 for 2020.
Based in Swannanoa, North Carolina, Symmetry Financial Group ranked 2,330 out of 5,000, having achieved 179% growth from its performance in the previous year. Inc. Magazine recognized Symmetry’s growth over the last three years, as well as the company’s successes in providing life insurance policies designed to help real people solve real problems and achieve a wide array of financial goals.
Why Symmetry Keeps Growing
As always, it’s the employee and customer experience that comes first at Symmetry Financial Group. The company provides its agents with some of the most robust compensation programs in the insurance industry, incentive and travel programs that give agents an opportunity to see the world, and the company provides agents opportunities throughout the year to give back to their community through a wide array of causes and charitable giving programs. When it comes to the business itself, Symmetry offers agents opportunities to build a business and excel as entrepreneurs on their terms, making it possible to work remotely both part or full-time as they build their agencies, create networks, and sell comprehensive insurance solutions.
In 2020, a major part of Symmetry’s continued success can be attributed to the company’s rapid pivot to video conferencing as a way for agents to hold meetings with their clients. Though in-person and especially in-home visits are limited in many parts of the country, families and homeowners are more interested in providing the protection of life insurance for their loved ones than ever before. Agents can use technology to continue to provide incredible customer service and ensure that their clients have the tools they need to empower their families.
Agents can also use video conferencing to lead meetings within their agencies and with their teams, allowing for expanded opportunities for personal growth and professional development. This has given some of Symmetry’s best agents a massive edge over the competition, and it has also helped them enable people who may have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic by helping them to become Symmetry agents or build agencies of their very own.
The Power of Company Culture
In addition to being listed five times on the Inc. 5000, Symmetry Financial Group was also recognized for having a Top Company Culture by Entrepreneur in both 2017 and 2018. This is because the company prioritizes the work-life balance of all of its agents, and by offering a powerful selection of products and creating incredible networking opportunities, team members are always incentivized to go above and beyond to nurture relationships and deliver incredible service for their clients.
Symmetry provides people from all career backgrounds and skill levels an opportunity to hone their existing skills, learn new ones, and take a journey into business ownership using a proven system and hard work to achieve sustainable, scalable growth. In the years to come, Symmetry and its agents will continue to push to grow the agency – and themselves – to new heights, and the company looks forward to seeing just how much is possible between now and 2021.
