With more than 19 years of financial planning experience, Travis has a consistent approach that focuses on six key areas: budgeting and cash management, investment planning, insurance planning, retirement planning, tax planning, and estate planning. But most importantly, Travis has a knack for taking sometimes difficult and confusing financial topics and making them easier to understand.
Growing up on a farm just outside of Pierce, Nebraska, Travis developed a deep appreciation for community, the outdoors, and hard work. He may not have realized it at the time, but that was a great foundation for his future profession. First attracted to the investment industry through a college finance course, Travis set out to use his passion for numbers to help others. He graduated from Doane University where he played football for four years and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in finance. He went on to complete the training and education to earn the designation of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional.
“Calm and level-headed” would be the way to best describe Travis and he is often the go-to guy in the office to answer questions and mediate decisions. That comes in handy at home as well. He and his wife, Gretchen, have “Team Riggert” consisting of four daughters and a son! As you can imagine, the Riggert family stays very busy with 5 kids. They also enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, camping, fishing, and hunting. The Riggert kids followed in their parents’ footsteps and love their sports. Travis usually finds himself helping with coaching duties in addition to being in the cheering section. In addition, the Riggerts are very active in their church, schools, and community.
