Our Story

Scott Hanson and Pat McClain have been educating listeners and clients for over 20 years.

Our History

Well over two decades ago, Scott Hanson and Pat McClain were working for an impersonal insurance giant that encouraged high-pressure sales tactics but offered customers very little service support in return.

They knew there had to be a better way.

A few years later, having turned their backs on the corporate business model to found Hanson McClain, Scott and Pat were extremely pleased that their business was growing, and they were deeply satisfied that they’d achieved their goal of creating a firm that always placed the interests of the clients first, but even then, something was still missing.

A “light” went on that led to an important question: What about the people who had a single “big picture” financial or investment concern, but who, for one reason or another, didn’t have access to a qualified investment advisory professional? What about the people who had woken up that very morning and were suddenly faced with a financial emergency for which they urgently needed an answer?


Where Did Those People Turn For Help?
