Mike Adams is no stranger to long-term investments. Not only has he managed securities portfolios since the last century, he and his wife Pamela have been married over 40 years.
As Mike is fond of saying, “Most financial advisors do not publish their results. We do, and we’re happy to do so!”

He holds a Master’s degree from Carnegie Mellon and a BA from OSU, and is very active in the community, serving on various boards and volunteering his time and expertise to non-profits.

Mike is the host of the weekly radio show “About Money,” which airs in Seattle on KLFE 1590Am, or can be found on our podcast page.

Sara joined AFC in September of 2015. She’s a 2014 graduate from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities with a B of A in Medieval History.

Craig Roth

CRAIG ROTH

Vice President - Investments and Business Development
croth@adamsfinancialconcepts.com 

Craig joined Adams Financial Concepts LLC as Vice President – Investments and Business Development in 2021. Craig brings nearly three decades of experience working as a financial advisor. He has worked with many individuals, their families and companies creating satisfying retirements and future legacies.  Craig previously served for nearly 20 years as a top-level Portfolio Manager. At Adams Financial Concepts, he is transitioning to an investment manager once again from working as a planner.

Craig is deeply committed to clients’ financial well-being, and strives to listen intently to their needs and concerns in order to provide them with just the right help for their unique circumstances.

As a financial advisor, Craig wants to help clients experience the future they imagine. "I have witnessed the devastation that can be inflicted upon a family unprepared for unexpected events and accidents," says Craig. "My own father was thrust into providing for his family as a teen. I grew up learning of the sacrifices and hard work he had to endure for survival's sake. I am driven to help investors avoid pitfalls and be prepared for their family's future."

Craig is grateful to have opportunities to spend time with his family, including hiking with his wife of more than 30 years, Jo, and their furball pooch, a Flat-coat Retriever named, Fozzy The Bear. He also has two sons, Adam and Jonah. Craig enjoys baseball, football, and SUMO wrestling. His favorite authors are Dick, and Twain, and Feynman. He also enjoys playing tennis, skiing some in winter, and the peaceful Zen of gardening in the great state of Washington.
