Our Story and Services

Our Story

Our name is inspired by the strength and integrity of the Flint Hills in Kansas. This treasured grassland region provides sustenance for an ecosystem that dates back centuries.
Like the Flint Hills, our team's strengths are rooted in history. The origins of The Flint Hills Group date back to 1966 when Paul Attwater's father started our financial advisor practice. More than half a century later, we proudly serve clients who have been with us since the beginning. We now work with the 4th and 5th generations of some of the families we serve.

With over 100 years of combined experience in the industry, many families have entrusted us with building, protecting, and preserving their wealth. Why? Because we offer professional financial guidance and dedicated client care. We bring the experience of all of our clients to each of our clients. This means that we apply the deep insight acquired from decades of experience to your unique needs and concerns.

Whether you're facing challenges around planning for retirement, tax mitigation, philanthropy, saving for education, or establishing a family legacy, we offer tailored guidance geared toward you and your family. And like the Flint Hills, you can trust that we are here for the long term.

Our Clients


We advise individuals, families, executives and business owners who have often accumulated significant wealth, but need help managing and ultimately transferring their assets. 

We treasure the long-term relationships formed with our clients and take pride in guiding multigenerational families through life’s financial challenges, while preserving their family values and legacy.

Often times, big life changes accompany financial decisions—birth, marriage, divorce, retirement, or a death. These can be emotional experiences, but with careful guidance, we help our clients ensure that with everything else they have to worry about, their financial strategy is being well managed. 

We are humbled by the opportunity to make a difference in our clients' lives. Sometimes our impact is measured by returns on an investment, or securing the funds to send a child to college. Other times it is less tangible, like the comfort we provide while helping a client with their estate after the death of a loved one.

Our clients have worked hard to build meaningful lives. That’s why we believe they deserve an exceptional team who is just as invested as they are in their future.

Our Beliefs

We believe in delivering first-class service in a first-class way – with time-honored skills, top-tier professionalism, and responsive care.

We believe in personal accountability and doing the right thing.

We believe in regular communication and an attentive eye. We keep in touch consistently and adjust financial solutions when your needs or objectives change.

We believe in personalized investment portfolios to best suit your goals. That’s why we don’t use cookie-cutter investment solutions for our clients.

We believe that investment decisions should not be driven by emotion. That’s why we strive to create plans that are proactive, rather than reactive.

We believe in leveraging the global resources of a world-class financial firm to help you build, preserve, and protect your wealth.

We believe in collaborating with your other trusted advisors; including attorneys and CPAs. This way your financial strategy is both coordinated and comprehensive.

We believe in giving back. We donate our time, talent and resources to support the community in which we live and work.

Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Our team is deeply rooted in the Wichita community. We've spent most of our careers working for local families' futures, and we're also raising our children and grandchildren here. 

We believe it's important to give back. We actively embrace community involvement by serving as board members, volunteers, and sponsors for several local organizations. Team members have helped develop two youth leadership programs in our area: The First Tee golf initiative, a youth development organization that teaches life skills and healthy habits to local youth; and the Morgan Stanley Youth Entrepreneurs Summer Partnership, teaching students about saving and investing.
