John Simonson

Senior Vice President of Investments

I am a Senior Vice President of Investments with First Financial Equity Corporation in Tucson, Arizona. I have been a licensed financial advisor for nearly 30 years starting with Merrill Lynch in 1990. I have a degree in Economics from Dartmouth College, class of 1981. I was attracted to the financial services industry initially because of my love and fascination with economics and with financial markets. However, as I have matured in the industry my real joy comes from helping clients establish and meet their financial goals.

Many of my clients are now the children and even the grandchildren of my original clients. I currently have clients in 30 different states.


I have lived in Tucson for 47 years and I love the lifestyle here. In 2016 I moved my business from Morgan Stanley to First Financial Equity Corporation to have more freedom and control over my business and how I work with clients. I established Simonson Wealth Management with my assistant Alta and my son Teddy. Our goal is to continue serving our clients long term and to help them and possibly their children and grandchildren achieve their financial success.

When not in the office I am passionate about spending time with family and friends. I believe this is the most important thing in life. I also enjoy hiking, cycling, bird photography and most of all riding my Harley Davidson Road Glide.
