Aaron Rigdon

Ever since Aaron was young, he had a passion for analytics and investments. When he was a teenager, Aaron realized he wanted to pursue a career in financial services. As he further focused his education, Aaron found his calling with investment planning and relates it to fitting puzzle pieces together. He believes investment planning helps simplify peoples’ financial lives by relieving some of the stresses that stem from the complexities of managing their wealth. He finds it rewarding when he hears his clients take that “sigh of relief” after a meeting, knowing they have a trusted professional and partner on their side.

With nearly 15 years of financial services experience, Aaron is dedicated to helping his clients build, manage, protect, and transfer their wealth across generations. Taking a comprehensive approach, he specializes in financial planning, asset management, estate preservation strategies, and tax mitigation strategies for individuals, families, and business owners. Aaron cares deeply for his clients, prioritizes trust and candor above all else, and strives to develop relationships with each client that go beyond the numbers. He dedicates time to getting to know who his clients are, both personally and professionally, so he can better understand what motivates them; he then uses this knowledge to build comprehensive investment plans to help them meet their objectives and confidently live their lives.

As a Missouri native, Aaron holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Missouri – Columbia. Committed to furthering his education to better serve his clients, Aaron earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional designation from the American College in 2014.

At Smith Moore, Aaron splits time working out of the Fulton and Columbia branch office locations.

Aaron and his wife, Michelle, are parents to three beautiful daughters. In their spare time, they enjoy rehabbing homes as a way to use their hands and give their community a face lift. As a family, they enjoy jeeping and fishing when they have the opportunity. Aaron is an avid Missouri sports fan dedicated to cheering on the Mizzou Tigers, St. Louis Cardinals, and Kansas City Chiefs.
