The Arkansas Financial Group, Inc. has been “Helping Busy People Make Smart Financial Decisions” since 1982. Our three pillars are Planning, Transparency and Discipline, and we serve as fiduciaries in our clients’ financial affairs, which means all our advice is based on our client’s best interest. As a fee-only firm, we receive no commissions or third-party compensation. This helps us to mitigate conflicts of interest and to focus solely on what’s best for those we serve.

Each of our clients have a different comfort level with risk. When we meet with you, we’ll explore your unique attitudes about risk vs. reward to ensure that our planning advice takes this into consideration, resulting in a financial plan that lets you sleep comfortably at night.

Our Certified Financial Planners™ include President/CEO Rick Adkins, who founded the company in 1982. Kristina Bolhouse, a CPA from Michigan, joined the firm in 1999, adding her vast tax knowledge to the firm. Dr. Ralph Broadwater joined the firm in 2008, bringing a unique knowledge of planning for physicians. Our newest partner, Mary McCraw, also joined in 2008 after working at a Los Angeles planning firm that served entertainers and athletes. We presently serve clients in Arkansas and 22 other states.
