Walter F. Burns, a former Naval Aviator, is a passionate financial advocate with more than forty years of industry experience. He is the founder of Family Steward Wealth Consulting®, an independent Registered Investment Adviser based in North Palm Beach, Florida.

Walter, who has devoted the last four decades to helping his clients achieve financial success, is now turning outward. He is committed to spending the rest of his life raising awareness about the inequities in the financial services sector and helping anyone anywhere take charge of their financial destiny. Walter is also ardent about offering a helping hand to veterans in need. As a former Naval Aviator in the Vietnam War, Walter knows first-hand the challenges returning veterans face and is determined to do what he can to make their lives better. Through his Donor Advised Fund, he offers avid support to the Wounded Veterans Relief Fund and the Air Warrior Courage Foundation — both of which meet Walter’s high efficiency mandate.

Along with his work and veteran’s causes, Walter is adamant about having fun and living everyday to the fullest. During his free time, he can be found cruising the South Florida coast in his beloved boat, Irish Luck, or enjoying a night of cooking with his wife Anja and friends; especially his fried turkey — a Thanksgiving tradition.
