Put your passion for service to work.

First Command's 60-years heritage is built on helping military families get their financial lives squared away®, yet many of our Financial Advisors do not come from the military community. These Advisors chose this career when they realized this was not just a job crunching numbers, but a career that would allow them to build a successful business by making a positive difference in the lives of their clients.

“First Command’s culture is unique to our industry as family-focused financial coaches. In life there are a few “big rocks”—spending time with family, exercising, eating healthy, and financial security. Financial security is one of the big rocks you can delegate. As a financial coach, I have the tools necessary to make clients feel more educated and confident about their family’s financial security. As a small business owner, I have the flexibility to prioritize my personal and professional life.”

“I love the fact that we hold ourselves to a higher standard and always aim to do what is in the best interest of the client. I also like the company’s commitment to training Financial Advisors. Not just anyone can get licensed and become a First Command Financial Advisor. We have a rigorous training process to ensure we maintain a high quality of Advisors who join our firm. I appreciate the company’s client-centric approach to everything we do, and I enjoy a high satisfaction with my career knowing I’m able to help military families.”
