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.

December 28, 2019 – Wealth Strategy with Bryan Rigg, Your Wealth Professor
Today, we’re going to talk about three different things. We’ll start the show with what people should do at the end of the year in regards to their finances. Bryan gives some tips on how to hold yourself more accountable to meet the deadline so you can just think about the family and not finances over the holidays. But Bryan will also give advice on what to do if the deadline has passed.
Then, Barbara Freeman joins the show once again to discuss her nonprofit organization, Freeman House (Freemanhouse.org). Freeman House has been serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area by providing transitional housing for men and women who are coming out of incarceration, recovering from addictions, and escaping homelessness since 2006. A house manager also joins the show to give her testimony to the nonprofit organization and the services they provide.
We’re going to close out the show with Bryan introducing his most recent book “Flamethrower”, which is now available on Amazon.com. According to some historians that proofread the book, “Flamethrower” is the most definitive work on an enlisted marine’s life during World War II.
