Russell Riggan, AAMS® President, TFS Financial Advisor, RJFS

Russell is dedicated to helping his clients pursue the many important goals they have, such as building their investment portfolio and preserving their wealth, funding college for their children, enjoying a comfortable retirement and leaving a legacy for their loved ones.

The clients he serves include families, small business owners, corporate executives, farmers and ranchers, retirees and nonprofit organizations.

Owning multiple small businesses and being involved in a multigenerational family business has allowed Russell to experience generational business planning and estate planning, and relate to the challenges and opportunities experienced by small business owners.

Russell joined Raymond James in April 2021. “Raymond James assists me with providing comprehensive financial strategies tailored to the unique needs of each individual, family, business, trust or organization,” Russell says. “Raymond James also supports me in serving my clients with a focus on promoting a Christian-based practice.”

Russell chose to name his practice Talent Financial Services after a biblical parable. “In Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus tells the Parable of the Talents. It contains a critical lesson about how we are to be stewards of our God-given capacities and resources,” Russell says. “Talent Financial Services is devoted to helping our clients be good stewards of wealth.”

Previously in his career, Russell was a financial advisor with Edward Jones Financial in Snyder, Texas, for nearly 15 years, where he was a four-time qualifier for the Managing Partner’s Conference and the Financial Advisor Leaders Conference. He earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and an MBA from Texas Tech University.

Russell was named to On Wall Street’s Top 25 Regional Advisors Under 40 in 2016 and 2017. He was invited to the 2019 and 2020 Barron’s 100 Summit.

Active in the community, Russell has served as board chair of Cogdell Memorial Hospital since 2009, and has also served as a football and basketball coach for both Ira Youth Sports and Shining Stars Sports.

Russell is a native of Snyder, Texas, and lives here with his children, Kynlee and Rhett. In his free time, Russell enjoys team roping, hunting, and fitness.

Each year On Wall Street ranks the highest-producing advisers in wealth management who are under 40. Several hundred candidates were considered and 40 were chosen to receive the award. Finalists had to be no older than 39 as of Dec. 31, 2016, and be employed at a major, leading regional brokerage firm. Trailing 12-month production as of 9/30/16 is then used to compile the ranking. AUM may also be taken into account. The ranking may not be representative of any one client’s experience, is not an endorsement, and is not indicative of an advisor’s future performance. Neither Raymond James nor any of its financial advisors pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. On Wall Street is not affiliated with Raymond James.

Raymond James and its advisors do not offer tax or legal advice. You should discuss any tax or legal matters with the appropriate professional.
