Through ethical, highly professional financial planning, we inspire confidence in our clients. In uncertain economic times, American families seek confidence in the institutions and individuals to whom they turn for advice. As a Registered Investment Adviser firm, First Command is committed to a fiduciary standard in our relationships with clients, assuming the obligation to always put their interests first in the advice and planning we provide.
We encourage our Financial Advisors to pursue advanced professional credentials, and more than 100 First Command Financial Advisors have earned, through rigorous study and examination, the Certified Financial Planner™ certification. Many hold other credentials, including the Chartered Financial Consultant designation, and still others hold industry-specific credentials such as the Chartered Life Underwriter designation.
The 27,000-member Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) recognizes First Command Financial Services as an FPA Alliance firm — a representative of the highest standards of ethics and professionalism in financial planning.
Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP®, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and federally registered CFP (with flame design) in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board’s initial and ongoing certification requirements.
