David has professionally managed money since 1975. In 1993, he established Sunrise Advisors, Inc., an independent, fee-only Registered Investment Advisor, on the belief that clients deserve premier, unbiased guidance and investment advice from their wealth advisor.
From 1972-1975, David served as an officer in a commercial bank holding company in the Kansas City metropolitan area. From 1975-1993, Mr. Scott was a registered representative and Vice President of Merrill Lynch, E.F. Hutton, and B.C. Christopher Securities.
He has received the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC®) designation and the Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS®) designation from the College of Financial Planning.
Founder of a true family-run business, Dave’s son (Sam), daughter (Sarah), and son-in-law (David) are all part of the continuity of Sunrise Advisors. A believer in long-term relationships in business and in his personal life, Dave has been married to his high school sweetheart, Kay, for 42 years. They live on the “farm” in Stilwell, Kan. When not in the office, you will likely find Dave at the gym or on the tennis court.
