Esprit de Corps – The “spirit” of a unit–devotion and loyalty, with a deep regard for history, traditions, and honor.
My brother Bryan and I share a lot in common. I served in the Marines, where I was awarded the Southwest Asia Service Medal, the Kuwait Liberation Medal, the National Defense Medal, the Sea Service Ribbon, and Platoon Honor Man . I also studied history, graduating with my bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Arlington. I later became a financial advisor because I saw both a need and an opportunity: a need for financial advisors who operated with integrity and placed the client first; and the opportunity to partner with Gary and Bryan. I knew I could always count on their integrity and desire to do the right thing, and that’s the team I wanted to work with.
All of us at Rigg Wealth Management have served in the Marines, and I believe that experience is a huge plus for our clients. The values instilled by the Marine Corps are the values that we still use in both our business and personal lives. We have a desire for service, and strive to follow through with both action and dedication. I believe clients cannot count on other financial advisers having been tested in the same way.
Clients can also benefit from my ability to see the big picture while attending to details. Perhaps it’s because I’m a pilot. I learned to fly while I was in the military, where I later taught students to fly. I also have my Air Transport Pilot License, Boeing 737 Type Rating, Flight Engineer Turbojet Rating, and logged 13,000+ flight hours as a Boeing 737 Captain.
In my off hours, I enjoy hunting and riding motorcycles, and participating in sports and activities with my children Connor and Brittany and my wife, Kimberly.

October 28, 2017 – Wealth Strategy with Bryan Rigg, Your Wealth Professor
Listen In Every Week: Saturday on WRR from 7:00-8:00 am
We’re going to talk today about four different things. We’re going to lead off with annuities. When we talk to new clients, and we talk to people who listen to the show, the feedback is everyone’s heard about annuities, and everyone’s heard about CDs. It’s because it’s what banks do. It’s safe. It’s a reasonable return, and there are expectations that could be met. We’re going to get into what they are, and why they may not be what you think they are.
Then we’re going to get into Rigg Wealth Management. Their business here in North Dallas isn’t for veterans, but they have a lot of experience being veterans. We’re going to talk about what their special insights are for veterans if there’s any out there that are listening. Then we’ll get into definitions and differences with IRAs and 401(k)s. Most people do this more than anything else as far as a do‑it‑yourself kind of investment option. We’re going to get into the do’s and don’ts.
We’re going to close out the show with client stories. We’re going to have Bryan talk about some of the successes he’s had with some of his clients of late and in the past few years that are relevant. In case any of you are looking at coming on board, we wanted to remind you that you’re not the only one that’s jumping from one investment firm to another. Bryan, as an independent consultant, he gets a lot of new clients that come over from somebody else, and some first-timers, as well.
