Alice L. Walton net worth and biography

Alice Walton Biography and Net Worth

Major Shareholder of Walmart

Alice L. Walton is a billionaire philanthropist and arts patron. As the daughter of Walmart founder, Sam Walton, she is an heiress to the Walmart fortune and ranks as the second-richest woman and 17th-richest person in the world. 

She manages Walton Enterprises, the holding company through which her family owns a majority stake in Walmart, with her brothers Rob and Jim.

The billionaire is the founder of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art where she also serves as chairwoman of the board of directors. Called one of the “most important new museums in U.S. history” by the editor of Art in America, the museum opened in Bentonville, Arkansas in 2011. The vision for the museum began in 2005, when Walton—a lifelong art collector—began using her family fortune to purchase art designated for the future institution by outbidding other museums and collectors. The Waltons have reportedly invested over $1.4 billion into the construction and operation of Crystal Bridges.

In 1988, she founded Fayetteville-based investment company, Llama Company, where she was CEO, chairman, and president. Before Llama Company, Walton joined Arvest Bank Group—a bank owned by her family—in 1982 as the vice chairman and head of investment-related activities. While there, she created Arvest Asset Management, a full-service broker and money management service provider. 

Immediately after her graduation from Trinity University in 1971, Walton was a children’s clothes buyer for Walmart before transitioning to the financial industry in 1975 as a broker with New Orleans-based firm, E.F. Hutton. In 1979, she was accused by the SEC of composing unsuitable option trades for customers. She publicly denied any legal violations but settled to avoid drawn-out litigation. The young securities broker was suspended for six months. 

Walton is a board member of the Walton Family Foundation and founder of the Alice L. Walton Foundation. She has been recognized with numerous accolades in the arts and philanthropic community including:

  • The Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art Medal
  • The John Cotton Dana Medal for Visionary Leadership in Museums
  • The Leonore and Walter Annenberg Award for Diplomacy through the Arts
  • Named one of the “Most Influential People in the World” by Time in 2012
  • Named one of the “World’s Top Art Collectors” by ARTNews in 2013
  • Inducted into the International Women’s Forum Hall of Fame in 2018

Walton holds a B.S. in economics and finance from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. A lifelong equestrienne, Walton raises cutting horses on her expansive Rocking W Ranch near Millsap, Texas, which she purchased in 1998.
