David L. Dunn

At Capital Planning

I advise my clients on all aspects of their wealth. Entrusting me to oversee their plan empowers my clients to prioritize their energy elsewhere so they can focus on whatever it is they do best.

Due to the complexity of their wealth profiles, my clients require personalized advice. As such, my role is both active listener and educator. I contemplate their priorities, propose solutions, and build a roadmap to help achieve their goals. My three decades of experience and judgment in managing this complexity enables me to advise them on issues ranging from enhancing their portfolio, minimizing taxes, preserving wealth, and transferring wealth to the next generation or charity.

I am a CPA, a Personal Financial Specialist, and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional. Before my wealth management career, I was employed on the audit staff of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Growing and preserving wealth is dependent on the avoidance of making critical mistakes throughout your lifetime. To help my clients and the public avoid making these mistakes, I created a series of whitepapers called the401k Critical Mistakes Series and IRA Critical Mistakes Series. Both series are available on my website at www.daviddunn.com.
