Broker dealer in Atlanta

We’re here to put you back at the center of your client relationships

An independent broker dealer, founded by advisors for advisors

Get the independence, flexible investments, and collaborative culture you’ve been searching for

You’ve worked hard to build a very valuable business, but your current firm is likely holding you back. That’s where we come in.

After serving as an independent advisor for more than 20 years, our founder, David Millican, launched Arkadios. The reason was simple: he experienced first-hand how broker dealers were changing the game and making decisions based on corporate goals instead of the needs of advisors like you and your clients.

“Black Stone Capital found an ideal partner in Arkadios with CEO David Millican, who built his own business through recruiting and acquisitions. We are going to continue to grow our firm, leveraging Arkadios’ experience and support, while putting our clients’ financial well-being first.”

“Arkadios checked all the boxes — advisor-owned, advisor-focused, smaller, flexible, willing to hear what we have to say and help us find solutions that are in our clients’ best interest.”
