David has been recognized, during his 30 years in the industry, as an advisor who is particularly protective of his clients’ assets. For the past 20 years, he has specialized in the universe of income-generating savings and investment strategies.

David is frequently sought out to share his insights on the financial markets on CNBC, Bloomberg, Fox Business, and other news outlets.

Experience & Credentials

Sound Income Strategies was founded as a Registered Investment Advisory firm by David Scranton (CLU, ChFC, CFP®, CFA, MSFS) and is registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. With a central office in Florida, Sound Income Strategies serves clients nationwide and is comprised of a team of investment management specialists with advanced training and experience with income-based investment strategies that emphasize income first and growth second.

With over 30 years of experience in the financial services industry, Sound Income Strategies Founder David Scranton (CLU, ChFC, CFP®, CFA, MSFS) is one of America’s leading independent financial advisors. Early in his career, Scranton “followed the crowd” with a business model that focused heavily on stock market-based investments. However, after years of independent research into stock market history, Scranton anticipated the onset of a new long-term secular bear market cycle in 1999. Armed with that knowledge, Scranton stopped following the crowd and changed his business model to one he felt would better serve his clients and protect their portfolios in the decades ahead. Since that time, Scranton and the advisors he has mentored have helped thousands of clients avoid devastating financial losses and build dependable retirement plans using primarily conservative income-generating saving and investment strategies.

Books by David J. Scranton

Mr. Scranton wrote Stop the Financial Insanity: How to Keep Wall Street’s Cancer from Spreading to Your Portfolio in 2011, and most recently, he became an Amazon bestselling author when he wrote Return on Principle: 7 Core Values to Help Protect Your Money in Good Times and Bad.

Based on years of independent research, these books explain the basis of David’s sound conservative approach to investing and retirement planning developed during his more than 30 years as a financial advisor.

Praise for David J. Scranton’s Books:

Armed with insights gained from a lifetime of study of stocks and investment alternatives, David Scranton offers perspectives investors should not ignore in these turbulent times where so many of the ‘old rules’ are being obliterated.

Steve Forbes

David is an important thought leader; always worth the read.

Peter Morici

I’ve been pleased to know Dave for a couple years. I’ve also been with him on The Income Generation and I’m wiser for it. He has a more rational approach to investing – one that relies on facts and historical market dynamics, not frenzy. Dave understands that investors aren’t all the same. Not everyone is looking for the chance at some fantasy 1,000% gain. Most investors want a reasonable chance at success while limiting their downside risk. Dave gets that.”
