    Personal Note From David

    Hi, I’m David Kanani.

    I’ve been providing financial services since 1986. During this time, I have advised hundreds of retirees and individuals approaching retirement. My main focus is to use the safest strategies to help protect and preserve my clients’ assets, increase their retirement income, assist in reducing taxes and help them guard against inflation. I attribute my years of success to building close relationships with my clients, regardless of the size of their accounts.

    Outside of my career, I have a beautiful wife, Carrie, my high school sweetheart—whom I married in 1987. Together, we’ve been blessed with two wonderful children, Nura and Zia. Our home is in San Clemente, California.

    When I am not in the office, I love to tinker with my 1962 Morris Minor and bike ride. My family and I love to snowboard in the winter and travel in the summer.
