Passionate About Inspiring Others

Steve Sexton earned his degree in Management Sciences from Pepperdine University. He spent eight years developing businesses for investors overseas until 1994. Upon returning to the U.S., he began his career in the insurance and financial industry with the Automobile Club of Southern California. For the past seventeen years, Steve has developed his own financial advice business.

He now works with the support of his team at Sexton Advisory Group to serve clients out of multiple office locations throughout Riverside and San Diego counties. He believes in helping clients take control by asking the questions that most people do not think or know to ask. His focus is on identifying issues that could be costing clients thousands of dollars in taxes, eradicating unidentified fees and expenses, solving estate problems, and eliminating any unknown risks.

Steve has been a financial contributor and expert for CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, US News and World Report plus more, appearing locally and nationally more than 420 times over the last 7 years. USA Today recognized Steve as a Financial Trendsetter for 2012 followed by recognition from The Wall Street Journal as a Financial Best-Selling Author in 2013 for his contributions to the book “How to Get More out Of Life and Business with Better Results”. In addition, Steve is the current host of the “Saving with Steve”, Radio, TV, and Podcast show.
