David Stewart
Principal Emeritus

As of 2022, David will be transitioning to retirement. One of two founding shareholders of the firm, he will continue as a Principal Emeritus of Stewart & Kett. His career in the financial services industry spanned 44 years, the last 36 of which were with Stewart & Kett or its predecessor, Stewart & Co.

Staff and clients will miss David’s steady, friendly demeanor at the office, as well as his guidance and insights. He looks forward to new out-of-office adventures in the years ahead.


Stewart & Kett’s fees have more than paid for themselves through returns and savings since I became a client over ten years ago. David Stewart and Andrew Rice are attentive and accessible. I have 25 years of direct experience in financial services, and the depth of detail provided by S&K has still given me significant, valuable insight. Having an independent, advice-only financial advisor is a sound strategy, and Stewart & Kett has been the logical, validated choice for my family and me.

Since our first financial planning with David Stewart in 1990, we’ve benefited from Stewart & Kett’s advice on our personal, corporate and trust cash management, investment advisors and policies, education funding, retirement and estate planning,…even our taxes. S&K consistently deliver expert insights, and thoughtful financial guidance. They really listen and work closely with us to provide the advice our family needs.  Their help over the years has been invaluable.
