Experience & Credentials
Sound Income Strategies, LLC was founded as a Registered Investment Advisory firm by David J. 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, LLC 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, Founder David J. Scranton is a seasoned independent financial advisor. Early in his career, David “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, David foresaw the possibility of a new long-term secular bear market cycle in 1999. Armed with that knowledge, David stopped following the crowd and changed his business model to one he felt would better serve his clients and help protect their portfolios in the decades ahead. Since then, David and the advisors he has mentored have helped thousands of clients avoid financial losses and build dependable retirement plans using primarily more conservative, income-generating saving and investment strategies.

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