JOHNS CREEK, Ga., Sept. 21, 2021 /CNW/ -- World Financial Group (WFG) is pleased to announce that Penney Ooi has become the first woman to qualify for the status of Executive Chairperson.

With these qualifications, Ooi is able to provide securities and investment advisor products and services—in addition to life insurance—to individuals, families, and businesses.

"Coming into this opportunity, I wanted to create a better life for my family and me, free of financial worry," said Ooi. "With the help of mentors, my husband and I have had the privilege to help thousands along the same journey towards financial independence. The WFG opportunity doesn't require you to fit into a glass slipper—it gives you the platform to shatter the glass ceiling!"

She truly cares about the futures of the clients she helps and the people she brings on as agents," said Tom Dempsey, President of WFGIA.
