Our Founder – David J. Scranton

Standing cropped no backgroundScranton Academy for Financial Education Founder, David J. Scranton (CLU, ChFC, CFP, CFA, MSFS) is author of the acclaimed book, “Stop the Financial Insanity.”  He created S.A.F.E. with the belief that all Americans should have free access to qualified educational resources to help them make informed, knowledgeable decisions with their hard-earned savings.

A native of Connecticut, Scranton has been in the financial services industry for over 25 years.  He is a well-established speaker and presenter throughout Connecticut and beyond, committed to educating as many people as possible with his workshops and classes on a broad range of financial topics.

A lifelong scholar, himself, Scranton developed the idea for a nationwide network of financial educators based on a common observation among his fellow advisors: That a majority of American adults (including those with advanced educations) seemed to have a limited knowledge and understanding of financial fundamentals, including such important concepts as basic investment options, financial defense, market history and the workings or Wall Street, and when to start saving for retirement.

“I believe people should always have free access to this kind of information, especially in today’s complex economic environment,” Scranton said. “I’ve seen too many people make costly financial mistakes simply because they lacked an understanding of the fundamental savings and investment options available to all Americans.”

Scranton hosts regular financial education workshops at Scranton Academy for Financial Education in Connecticut, and frequently welcomes guest educators, who offer workshops in their particular areas of financial expertise free of charge.
