About Me

Hi, I'm David Edmisten. I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ with 16 years of experience advising clients to retire and enjoy the next phase of their life confidently.

I help corporate employees who want to retire early. I help my clients make informed decisions for their early retirement by educating and providing expert advice on retirement income, saving on taxes, investments and benefits planning.

I can help you answer the following questions:

• How to know for sure that you’ve saved enough to retire early without running out of money

• How to create a retirement paycheck to cover all your expenses before you retire

• How to choose the best options for medical and healthcare expenses before Medicare

• Legal and effective ways to reduce taxes in retirement so you keep more of your hard-earned savings

• A proven way to structure your investments so that stock market downturns don’t derail your retirement lifestyle

• The steps you need to take now to protect your retirement from unexpected health and life challenges

• How to effectively take care of your loved ones when your retirement ends

We are based in beautiful Prescott, AZ and meet with our clients virtually. This allows us to meet with clients wherever they are and at a time that works best with your schedule. We are also available in person by request for clients in our area.

I am a Christian, very happily married to my amazing wife Kristy and father of 8 wonderful children. We enjoy traveling, the beach, hiking, sports, games, and serving others. I also love music, playing guitar and sharing laughter with family and friends.

I look forward to speaking with you and learning about your ideal early retirement and how we can help you achieve it!

To make Wealthtender free for readers, we earn a nominal monthly fee from financial advisors and firms in exchange for providing access to the benefits described here (including being featured on this profile page), subject to these terms. This compensation creates a natural conflict of interest when we favor their promotion over others. Wealthtender is not a client of these advisors or firms.
