Take your practice to new heights

The Journey starts here

Advisors Excel Journey
Journey impact
  • 235 producers attended 1 of the 2 Journey events in 2012
  • This group collectively wrote $1.8 billion in premium in 2012
  • 72 producers attended both 2012 events
  • Those 72 producers produced a $185 million increase in business over 2011
  • That's an average increase of $2.56 million per attending producer

Our Journey events are among our best-attended, most eagerly anticipated events of the year. And why wouldn’t they be, with an average $2.4 million increase in annual production per producer attending? For 2014, Advisors Excel has shifted The Journey into OVERDRIVE, bringing you not just one but MULTIPLE TOP PRODUCERS with even more practical, time-tested ideas that can be immediately implemented into YOUR practice!

For The Journey: Austin in September, we upped the ante even more by waiving the registration fee for all fully on-board producers who did at least $3 million in business with us over the past 12 months!

PLUS! We’re continuing to offer optional training from the AE Life team and Global Financial Private Capital on arrival day! Be sure to ask your VP of Marketing for complete details on this additional training, then prepare to be blown away by each leg of The Journey in 2015!
