Zachary Scott CFP®

Financial Planning Director

Zachary Scott is a Financial Advisor with a CFP designation at Securian Capital of the Chesapeake. Prior to joining the firm in August of 2020, he was the Lead Advisor at BFG Financial Advisors where he spent six years learning about the financial world and developing his passion of building unique financial plans for each client. A graduate of the Honors College of Loyola University Maryland, Mr. Scott holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a concentration in Finance. He holds his FINRA Series 7(General Securities Representative Examination) and 66 (Uniform Combined State Law Examination) registrations and obtained his Maryland Life & Health Insurance license in August of 2016. He also earned his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM (CFP®) designation in 2017 and completed Dale Carnegie®’s Skills for Success communication course in 2019. As an Advisor, it is Mr. Scott’s goal to break down the barriers—such as fear, overconfidence, or lack of understanding—that keep people from seeking professional advisement. He encourages everyone, regardless of age, gender, or financial status, to consider working with a financial advisor to develop a plan for the future.

When it comes to clients’ finances, it is Mr. Scott’s philosophy that planning should be a team effort. While he values the personal relationships he has cultivated with his clients, he is certain that the collaborative nature of the firm and the support of a strong team are what enable him—and his clients—to succeed. When not at work, Mr. Scott spends time at home with his fiancée and adopted greyhound, cheering for the St. Louis Cardinals, and playing softball in a social sports league. He also enjoys volunteering with local organizations, including the Maryland Food Bank, and is looking forward to getting more involved with charities in his community.
