David B. Ernst, AIF®

Private Client Advisor

Some advisors would be content to settle into their habits after 20+ years in the industry. But experience has taught David that every plan requires a novel approach, and there are no shortcuts when it comes to planning for the future.

Always observing and learning, David brings a high level of skill, patience and wisdom to the accounts he manages. His extensive experience coaching high school football has taught him important lessons on perseverance that he uses to help his clients keep on a steady course through the ups and downs of life. As he tells his clients—sometimes the biggest opportunities come disguised as misfortune.

Born and raised in ICR IOWA, David has spent his entire career in the area, giving him a unique understanding of the needs of our community. When he’s not in the office or out in the football field, you can find him spending quality time with his family or serving on various boards and committees for the organizations he’s passionate about.
