Walker Abney, CFP®

Walker Abney is the co-founder of Tilia Fiduciary Partners. Walker’s core duties include investment research and portfolio management, as well as advising clients on investment planning. Walker holds a M.S. in Finance & Investment Management from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a B.S.B.A. in Finance & Banking from Appalachian State University. He earned the Certified Financial Planner™ designation in 2009. Prior to Tilia, Walker guided clients as a Financial Advisor at Wells Fargo Advisors.

Walker is a believer in “brilliant simplicity” when it comes to investing. He advocates for empowering our clientele via ongoing education, keeping investment costs as low as possible, and direct investment ownership rather than outsourced “pooled investment vehicles.” He strongly believes investments that are complex, opaque, and high-cost have no place in most investors’ portfolios.

A resident of Wilmington, NC since 2006, Walker has three young boys that occupy most of his free time these days. Walker is heavily involved in several local non-profit organizations, and is the former President of the Board of Trustees for the Historic Wilmington Foundation.
