Scott Campbell
Investment Adviser Representative, RICP

Founder & President of Austin First Financial, Inc.

Hi, I’m Scott Campbell, also known as The Retirement Instructor. Over the last 20 years, I have taught hundreds of classes on retirement, Social Security, investment planning and taxes for the University of Texas Informal Classes program and Extellent Professional Development Centers (formerly St. Edwards University Professional Education Center). I have the experience and passion to help you navigate a complex financial world and feel confident in your strategies for retirement.

I began my career in the financial services business in 1997. As a fiduciary, I embrace the opportunity to act in the best interests of my clients, with a duty of undivided loyalty and utmost good faith. I also am a strong advocate for evidence-based investing, wealth management and retirement planning and look forward to helping you define your ideal retirement.

As a Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP), I have the knowledge and expertise to navigate intricate retirement issues. I have passed the Series 63 and 65 securities exams and hold life, accident, health and HMO insurance licenses in South Carolina and Texas. In 1993, I graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Science degree in organizational communications.

I have been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, CBS Radio, Financial Advisor Magazine, Bankrate.com and CNBC.

I live in South Austin with my wife, Shannon, who is a physician’s assistant at Bee Caves Pediatrics, and our three children: Reilly, Sarah and Carson.
