BCM Wealth Management Certified for Fiduciary Excellence

Issued by: Centre for Fiduciary Excellence [CEFEX]

Date: Apr. 6, 2020

PITTSBURGH, APRIL 6, 2020 – CEFEX, the Centre for Fiduciary Excellence, LLC, has certified BCM Wealth Management in Wilmington, DE to the standard described in the handbook “Prudent Practices® for Investment Advisors”. BCM Wealth Management (BCM) joins the elite group of Investment Advisors to successfully complete the independent certification process.

The standard describes how an Investment Advisor assumes the responsibility for managing a client’s overall investment management process, which includes the selection, monitoring and de-selection of investment managers, as well as developing processes to implement investment strategies and fiduciary practices on an ongoing basis. According to the Vice President, Centre for Fiduciary Excellence, Carlos Panksep, “Through CEFEX’s independent assessment, the certification provides assurance to institutional clients, that BCM has demonstrated adherence to the industry’s best fiduciary practices. This indicates the firm’s interests are aligned with plan sponsors.”

G. David Biddle, AIF®, Founder and President of BCM Wealth Management, shared “BCM is proud to be the first and only CEFEX certified financial advisory firm in Delaware, continuing our commitment to the highest standard of fiduciary financial advice. The independent ISO-based audit from CEFEX helps our clients to feel confident that the BCM fiduciary process has been built on best practices and is focused on our client’s benefit.”

BCM Wealth Management is certified as an ERISA 3(38) fiduciary, serving 401(k), 403(b) and defined benefit plans. BCM is registered on this public page, where its certificate can also be viewed.

The standard is substantiated by legislation, case law and regulatory opinion letters from the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, the Uniform Prudent Investor Act (UPIA), the Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act (UPMIFA) and the Model Management of Public Employee Retirement Systems Act (MMPERSA) in the U.S.

A full copy of the standard can be downloaded from CEFEX at www.cefex.org and a summary can be viewed by clicking on BCM ’s on-line Independent Assessment Report. More information about BCM Wealth Management is available at www.bcmwealth.com.
