FALLS CHURCH, VA (December 21, 2010) — Investment News Magazine named Terry K. Headley, LUTCF, LIC, FSS, of The Headley Financial Group in LaVista, Neb., one of the “20 Most Powerful People of 2011." The list includes “people who will shape both the face and the future of the financial advisory industry,” and includes a profile of Headley.
Headley is the Managing Partner of the Special Market Development Office and President of Headley Financial Group in La Vista, Neb. A senior agent and registered representative with the Principal Financial Group for the past 37 years, Headley formed Headley Financial Group, an affiliate of the Principal, in May 1982
Headley was elected president of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors when NAIFA members convened at the NAIFA Career and Annual Meeting in Seattle last fall. Headley’s advice for members:
In an interview with Investment News, Headley identified a number of challenging issues facing the insurance industry today: threats to limit tax advantages of insurance products, a provision in the health care reform law calling for a 3.8 percent tax on annuity payouts and legislators’ call for a fiduciary standard of care on broker-dealers under the Wall Street Reform law.
Headley recently met with SEC officials to explain the impact fiduciary duty would have on NAIFA members. With several other legislative issues on the agenda, Headley tells Investment News: “We have good allies and good relationships with many (on Capitol Hill) who will be assuming chairmanship posts at the committees, and we're structured to nurture those relationships.” Headley will serve as NAIFA president until fall 2011.
Headley and Wynetta, his wife of 40 years, reside in Springfield, Neb., just outside of Omaha. They have three adult daughters and two grandchildren.
