Kirk D. Scott

National Marketing Director

I specialize in providing strategies and coaching for those who want to better their financial lives.  Whether you have a retirement nest egg of five million dollars, would like to start building toward your future or desperately need to get back on the right track. My team and I can help make sure you achieve your goals.

We understand that life can be unpredictable.  Creating a stable, predictable cash flow that is guaranteed even during the difficult and unforeseen events in your life can be a challenge.  That is why I show my clients the most effective way to manage their cash flow.  I combine your life goals with proven strategies and proper protection. I partner with you to get the most out of every dollar you bring in.

Benjamin Franklin wrote “A small leak can sink a great ship”.  As your professional I find the leaks and fix them.  Your financial plan may be perfect, but if your ship had a leak, when would you want to find out?

At American Financial Associates we have helped thousands of families at all economic levels.  I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you to see if I can help you achieve your financial goals and enjoy the independence that great planning brings.

Our Perspective

We believe that most financial professionals only focus on potential rates of return to impact their client’s investment portfolios and do not adequately address the impact of market volatility, taxes and unforeseen events on long term financial outcomes.
