(Pretty good stuff, it we say so ourselves!)
Bedford and Main was formed in 2012 as a consulting firm with a simple, focused approach to a dynamic, ever-changing industry.
We provide consulting services primarily to the broker-dealer community. This includes Introducing Brokers, Self-Clearing Brokers, Correspondent Clearing Firms, Independent or W-2 Based Advisor Models, Secondary Clearing or “Piggyback” Firms, and often, Start-up Broker-dealers and those looking for an acquisition partner. Yes, we will assist other related financial services clients when it is a good fit, but we stay true to our core competencies.
Our experience is both deeply rooted, yet freshly relevant. While remaining very actively engaged in the industry, we bring to the table 35+ years of senior experience in hands-on building, growing, restructuring and changing business lines and infrastructures. We are happy to share more details about our approach.
We have successfully expanded our core services in response to feedback from clients. Three prime examples of this would include: support for small firms' merger and acquisitions initiatives, development of our Anti-Money Laundering (AML) independent testing services, and establishing securities expert witness and litigation support. Continuing this growth, we were pleased to annouce that Bedford and Main Financial Consulting, Inc. is now listed in the FINRA Compliance Vendor Directory.
Our business is founded on strong relationships. In fact, our depth of relationships and industry contacts in the broker-dealer community are some of the reasons clients turn to us for help. With only a few years under our “consulting” belts, we are quite proud to point you to our Testimonials page.
Bedford and Main thrives because we love what we do. We strongly believe this is a great industry, dominated by people of good character and integrity, and we are proud to work hard to support it.
