D. Scott Brooks


Scott Brooks has been an investment adviser representative since 1987, and has directly managed over $100 million in client assets.

Scott’s investment philosophy is one of risk management. The cornerstone to his success is the vigilant recognition that losses hurt you more than gains help you™.

Scott's commitment to the retirement needs of Americans has led him to numerous endeavors. He has served as an instructor in the University of Missouri's Learning in Retirement Program. After witnessing the impact of the burgeoning health care crises on America's retirees', Scott founded and was Chairman of Revolution Medical, an incentives-based health insurance contractor dedicated to improving the health, and consequently the lives, of retired Americans.

Scott taught several courses as a guest lecturer in the Finance Department at the University of Missouri, as well as consulted with professors at other universities around the nation.

Scott and his wife work with illiterate youth to educate them on how to develop basic reading skills. They also work with “at risk” kids, taking them into their home and teaching them basic life skills. Scott takes an active role in coaching youth sports and mentoring children of all backgrounds, as well as having served as Scout Master for his son’s Boy Scout troop.
