Beginning his financial career in 1984, Tony Walker has always considered himself a “contrarian” of sorts (his favorite book as a child was Arty the Smarty). Not one to follow the herd, Tony’s professional experience in the financial trenches – forged over four different decades – has confirmed much of what Tony has always believed: “that it’s not about the money, but about people.”
As the author of four books on retirement, as well as numerous appearances on Television, Tony Walker brings to the table his most innovative work to date, The 3 Personalities of Money®.
An expert on money, Tony is also an expert in the understanding of people and how they deal with money. He fully believes that the “one-size-fits-all” mentality pitched by the Financial World is the root of so many worries. While most people representing the Financial World seem preoccupied with how to make millions, Tony’s mission in life is to simply to help millions.
A Registered Investment Advisor, he is a native and lifelong resident of the state of Kentucky. Besides a vast background in the study of finance, Tony has degrees in Psychology and Communication from Western Kentucky University. From 1998 – 2004, Tony hosted the TV show, “Your Money Matters” and for the past five years the featured weekly Retirement Specialist on NBC affiliate, “WAVE3 Listens Live” television show in Louisville Kentucky. Approaching 30 years of marriage to his high school sweetheart, Susan, together they enjoy their three children and four “personality-filled dogs.”
