Scott has more than two decades' worth of experience and knowledge from successfully managing client portfolios in constantly changing markets. Like Spencer, his main goal for clients is to help ensure they have enough money to last them throughout their retirement years. Scott specializes in retirement income planning, financial planning, insurance review, retirement plans both individual and corporate, and 501(c)3 and other charitable and religious investment advisory services.
As a general manager in the luxury automobile dealer business, Scott developed his skills in finance. In 1991, he found his financial acumen could best serve people by helping them reach their retirement income goals, so he joined Morgan Stanley Smith Barney as a financial advisor and became the first advisor in South Carolina to earn the firm’s national sales director award. Then, in 2009, he went to work for Morgan Keegan, which joined with Raymond James in 2012.
Scott was recently awarded the Howard F. Rudd, Jr. Business Person of the Year Award given by the College of Charleston Alumni Association. The award recognizes a College of Charleston graduate who has made significant contributions as a business leader to industry or profession, has given back to the community and alma mater, and who has exhibited great integrity in his or her business and personal life.
