About Walter Macuda

Walt brings 34 years of experience in the financial services field to work with clients and assist them in defining and pursuing their investment goals. Walt established Macuda Financial group (MFG) in June 2012 to become an independent financial advisor after opening a new branch office in Aurora, IL for Edward Jones Investments in 1997. Being independent allows him to offer suitable advice and recommendations for the best interest of his clients. Prior to 1997 Walt worked at Dearborn Financial Services in Chicago in the securities education area and at Kemper Financial Services, also in Chicago, as product manager for variable insurance and annuity products. This diverse background and training enables him to better partner with clients when developing their investment goals and objectives.

Risk is usually foremost on the minds of investors and Walt attempts to construct portfolios that minimize volatility while not detracting from long-term performance. Walt does this by including alternative investments and other non-stock market correlated investments along with the traditional combination of equities and fixed income.

Walt is registered to sell securities in SC, IL, NC, FL, TX, MN, AZ, OH, MI and NY and is life insurance licensed in a number of states too. He has also earned both the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designations.

Walt lives in North Myrtle Beach, SC with his wife Marjorie.

Investing involves risk including loss of principal. No strategy assures success or protects against loss. Alternative investments may not be suitable for all investors and should be considered as an investment for the risk capital portion of the investor’s portfolio.
