Scott's education allows him to effectively explain and convey the intricate aspects of the market. He continuously strives to expand his own knowledge of the financial world, as well as his client's. As he works to receive more designations, Scott integrates what he learns into his work while at the same time holding himself to a high standard of ethical service.
