Through exceptional support,
First Command delivers value to you —
so you can deliver value to your clients.
First Command is committed to providing you with the support you need to launch, manage and grow an independent financial planning practice. From the knowledge, expertise and attentive personal service of hundreds of Home Office employees to your mentors in the field, you can count on a great depth and breadth of support to help ensure your success.
Financial planning support. Because each client has unique needs, no two financial plans are alike. Through the Home Office-based Financial Planning department, Investment Planning Team, First Command Bank Trust Department and other resources, you’ll enjoy access to experts who can assist you with planning policies, procedures and production; investment recommendations and portfolio analyses; and questions related to retirement planning, education planning, asset management, estate planning and more.
Product support. First Command’s product management teams provide training and information resources on a wide array of products to support clients’ financial plans, including professionally managed investment accounts; retirement and education accounts; life, long-term care, disability income and property-casualty insurance; trusts and more.
Compliance support. The financial industry is highly regulated and ever-changing, and Financial Advisors must ensure that their practices comply with all applicable regulatory standards. To assist you in this, First Command’s legal and compliance professionals provide a variety of information resources plus frequent communications on regulatory issues and updates. In addition, First Command employs a team of compliance inspectors to examine the operations of its field offices and make recommendations — prior to regulatory agency inspections — to help you achieve high standards of compliance.
Marketing support. First Command provides you with both strategic marketing planning and an array of advertising/marketing materials to promote your practice. Under the direction of the Chief Marketing Officer, Strategic Marketing Consultants work with divisional leaders, District Advisors and individual Financial Advisors to develop local marketing plans and programs designed to help build Advisors’ businesses. A dedicated Federal Market Manager assists Advisors with programs addressing the federal and military markets. A full-service creative team produces sales literature, print advertisements, presentations, signage, direct mail, web-based advertising and more to help Advisors communicate the value they deliver.
