sadarScott M. Sadar is Executive Vice President

and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ at Somerset Wealth Strategies.

A financial professional for 15 years, Sadar contributed to annuity sales at Jackson National Life and MetLife prior to joining Somerset Wealth Strategies. Scott’s experience in simplifying these complex products allows for his clients to understand what the product does for them, instead of repeating the newest acronym or abbreviation created by an insurance company marketing department.

Nick Murray has spoken about how there are two things each person must purchase everyday of retirement: 1) dignity and 2) independence. Scott provides conservative and comprehensive financial planning advice for his clients. He prefers to ask “What are you trying to accomplish?” and then actually listen to clients share about their goals and objectives. His style is to explain how those benefits will make a positive impact on the lives of his clients so they may focus on living their dreams with meaning and purpose.
