Our Story

Riverbend Financial Group was founded in 2007, but Andy Burdsall’s interest in financial planning and good stewardship started early, when he was 13 years old. It was then that he started mowing yards, and investing his earnings in mutual funds. He faithfully continued to save and invest for years, and with the earnings from those early investing ventures, was able to put a down payment on his first house.

Andy “officially” entered the financial industry in 1999 when he joined American Express Financial Advisors, but his heart has been dedicated to wise stewardship and informed financial decision-making much longer. He was instrumental in founding Navigator Financial Group in December 2001, and became the sole business owner in September 2003.

In July 2007, Navigator Financial Group became Riverbend Financial Group, at which time Andy became president.
