About Us

In 1977, Greg Malan founded Malan Financial Group. After receiving his Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Eastern Illinois University, Greg was recruited by The Franklin Life Insurance Company, which was founded in 1884. Greg provided his clients with retirement plans and income protection products structured to fit their individual needs.


Over the years, Greg expanded his business by including many other well known companies, some of which are listed below:

Allianz ING Penn Mutual
American Funds Indland Prudential
American General Jackson National Sun America
American Reality Capital John Hancock SunLife Financial
AVIVA KBS Transamerica
Banner Life Lafayette Life Vanguard
Curian Capital Lincoln Financial West Coast Life
Fidelity Advisors Met Life Western National

*The aforementioned listed companies and their associated trademarks in no manner endorse, sponsor, certify or approve Malan Financial Group and or its services offered.

In 2003, Doug Malan joined his father in the business. He is an Investment Advisor Representative through the National Planning Corporation (NPC). What started as Greg Malan and Associates is now known as the family business.

In November 2011, a NEW division of Malan Financial Group was born - MidAmerica Financial Resources. This division was designed to embrace all the financial industry has to offer. Over the past several years, we have been moving in that direction, knowing that a new division would be developed. Our focus has become much more comprehensive. We acquire all information affecting our client's financial picture so that we can properly assess their current plan, or if one is not already in place, design one for them. We utilize our resource center, which consists of professionals such as accountants, lawyers, banks, mortgage specialists, etc. This is to assure that our clients have one comprehensive plan that addresses every area of their financial picture, instead of several plans that may not be working toward the same goal.

Comprehensive Financial Planning is an approach used by Financial Planners to give a client a real view of whether their current investment portfolio and investment strategies are capable of addressing their long term goals. Many people wonder if they will have enough money to retire on, if they are saving enough for their kids' education, or if something were to happen to them would they have enough protection for their family to get by. Using state of the art planning software, we are able to give our clients a complete financial overview and place their long term dreams within reach.

Resource One Advisors

Although MidAmerica Financial Resources is an independent firm, we are a member of a group called Resource One Advisors. Resource One Advisors is a large network of advisors throughout the mid west partnering together for the betterment of each individual advisor's practice and the lives of the clients belonging to that practice. This group was formed by men and women who have years of experience and personal relationships with each other. Since this organization is not captive, the standard to which we seek advisors is very selective. We are looking for people who are not only going to be outstanding in business, but outstanding in life.
