Welcome to Forum 400

Forum 400 was established 50 years ago by some of the most respected professionals in the life insurance industry. People like Ben Feldman, Sid Friedman, Gerald Gallop, Mehdi Fakharzadeh, Jack Dulworth, Bill Sapers, and Duane Gartner.

These legends built a life insurance think-tank to bring together elite insurance producers to openly share practical strategies and fresh ideas to positively impact client outcomes and remain at the top of the field. Forum 400 remains laser-focused on helping life insurance producers at the top of the field get better and serve their clients, while maintaining the highest ethical standards and integrity. This community represents the best of the best in the life insurance industry.

The foundation of Forum 400 is built on the pillars of collaborative culture, exclusive community, and practical solutions.
