Syd Walker, CFP®, AIF®

Vice President/Investments


I have spent nearly 20 years as a professional financial advisor and have earned several distinctive designations that I believe help me understand you, in turn, help you grow and preserve your wealth.

I place a high priority on continuing my education in an effort to serve your various and ever-changing needs.  By earning my Master of Business Administration, I strive to integrate my leadership skills and management knowledge within my practice.

Having attained and maintained the Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) Professional certification and Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®) designation, I have received training on the duties of good faith and standards of care, insurance reviews, tax strategies, as well as estate planning issues and retirement planning.

I have also earned the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) and the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) designations, which require extensive knowledge regarding insurance and estate planning issues.


I began my investment industry career in 1997 with Charles Schwab and joined Stifel in 2016.  I have also served as a client consultant with Lincoln Financial Group and as a financial advisor with A.G. Edwards and Wedbush Securities.  Prior to my financial services career, I was also an Eagle Scout.
