David Scranton

Founder/CEO, CFA®, CFP®, ChFC, CLU

David J. Scranton, CFA®, CFP®, ChFC, CLU is an Amazon bestselling author, nationally recognized money manager, and founder of Sound Income Strategies, Retirement Income Source, Advisors’ Academy, and Scranton Financial Group. David is on a mission to reach 7 out of 10 Baby Boomers with the important message: When it comes to planning and saving for retirement, it’s all about investing for income. 

With 35 years of experience, David has specialized in income-generating investments for the past 24 years. Prior to that, he followed a typical business model focused on stock market-based investments. However, in 1999, while many on Wall Street believed the sky was the limit for stock market investors, David’s knowledge of history led him to believe something different.

It was at this time that David made the change to a business model focused on income-generating investment options. As a result, he was able to help many of his clients avoid damaging losses during the two major market corrections we’ve experienced since the turn of the century.

David’s approach to financial freedom and stability in retirement is both refreshing and realistic. He understands the anxieties that many are facing when they consider preserving and distributing their retirement funds.

He helps take the guesswork out of the financial picture, providing real numbers and real solutions to help preserve your retirement savings for the long term. Often the greatest fear for those in retirement is outliving one’s hard-earned savings. That is why David uses his knowledge, experience, and training to help clients account for all the variables in their retirement so that they can enjoy greater financial stability throughout retirement.

David shares his market insights on networks such as Fox Business, CNBC, TD Ameritrade, and Yahoo Finance. He has his own radio show, “Retirement Income Source,” which airs weekly on stations around the country. He also hosts the popular “Retirement Income Source” YouTube channel to help educate viewers about financial issues that could impact their retirement. David is the author of three Amazon bestselling books, including “Return on Principle” and “The Retirement Income Stor-E.”

A proponent of financial literacy, David has hosted hundreds of workshops and seminars for educated retirees and near-retirees.
