Scott, Owner of Eric Scott Financial in St. George, Utah, has been named the 2015 Advisor of the Year. Referred to as the industry's most prestigious award, the Advisor of the Year recognizes the top advisor who is successful, trustworthy, committed, ethical, community-focused, and most importantly, a super producer.

"When we began the process of selecting this year's Advisor of the Year, we looked at multiple categories including: production, community involvement, relationship with clients and an exemplary compliance and suitability record. We knew what type of candidate we were looking for and Eric Scott fit that model perfectly," said Retirement Advisor Editor Daniel Williams. "Mr. Scott embodies what a top advisor should be. He's a great producer, has a spotless ethical record and he has a unique ability of connecting with his prospects and clients."

During his 30+ years in the industry, Eric has learned the importance of holistic planning, client education and storytelling.
