GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan —FormulaFolios Investments is thrilled to announce that its growth streak continued in 2017, with the company earning a coveted place on the Inc 500 list of fastest-growing private companies in America for the third year in a row. With a three-year growth rate of 1,275%, FormulaFolios placed at #385 on the 2018 Inc 500 list following a strong year during which revenue grew by $12.1 million – a larger amount than the company’s total revenue for 2015 and more than double the $6 million revenue growth it saw in 2016 – to $29.3 million, while headcount has grown to 92 employees.
According to Inc, FormulaFolios is the fastest-growing private company based in the Grand Rapids, MI area and the third-fastest growing one in the entire state of Michigan.
A Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), FormulaFolios uses money management algorithms to eliminate emotion from the investment processes and empower financial advisors to better serve their clients.
Founded in 2011 by Jason Wenk, a Grand Rapids-area native who currently serves as the company’s CEO and Chief Investment Strategist, FormulaFolios’ first appearance in Inc’s rankings was on the 2015 Inc 5000, placing at #944 on the broader list. It followed up by earning a #15 ranking on the 2016 list and was named the tenth-fastest growing company in America in 2017.
To accommodate its growth, FormulaFolios is continuing to expand its footprint, with renovation work currently underway at its headquarters on an additional floor that will be used as office space and an employee lounge. In 2017, the company added a floor that’s used to host training events for financial advisors and opened a second office in Orange County, California. FormulaFolios’ West Coast office is focused on providing financial advisors with comprehensive marketing products and services, helping them streamline their operations, reduce costs, and grow their businesses.
Given this track record and a dedicated team that’s supported by a company culture of “Doing Good,” FormulaFolios expects strong growth to continue for the foreseeable future.
