VIDEO: Why I Became a Financial Advisor
By Dave Becker, ChFC®
The foundation of Dave Becker’s success as a financial advisor is his love for helping people.

Over the span of his career, Dave has guided his clients through some of the most dynamic and uncharted situations for investors, including the burst of the dot.com bubble and the subsequent correction from 2000-2002, the 2008 financial crisis, a global pandemic and interest rates at 41-year highs.
Dave, his wife, Staci, and their four children (Christian, Anna, Carson, and Jonah) reside in Cedar Falls, Iowa. In addition to his work responsibilities, Dave has also volunteered at school, coached soccer and robotics, served as a trustee at church, led a Cub Scout pack, and cheered his kids on in everything they do.
