Derek Colton |

President, Investment Advisor

As best selling author and long-time host of the Safe Money Radio Show and President and Founder of Cornerstone Retirement Solutions, Derek Colton has enjoyed helping clients from all walks of life protect and grow their hard-earned retirement money.
Derek likes to “brag” that as a layman, he made every investing mistake known to man-some of them many times. As a young man, these costly mistakes inspired Derek to educate himself on the intricacies of the financial markets and the pros and cons of various financial products and investment strategies.
Wanting to do what he could to help others avoid the investing blunders he made early on, Derek founded Cornerstone Retirement Solutions, a retirement and investment planning firm. This gives Derek the opportunity to use his experience to assist his clients in planning, sustaining and enjoying a secure retirement.
Some of the strategies Derek employs will allow for the potential of significant gains to one’s portfolio without the risks typically associated with the stock market. A risk some of his clients would rather do without.
​Derek, his wife of 39 years, Penny, and their 5 daughters (yes, 5 daughters!), 4 sons-in-law and 6 grandchildren (and counting) make their home in Edmond, Oklahoma where they are active members of Henderson Hills Baptist Church.
