Welcome to the Corner of Bedford and Main!
Consulting Engagements – Anti-Money Laundering Testing – Expert Witness Services
When Bedford and Main started in 2012, we initially focused on providing classic project related consulting services to the broker-dealer community. This hasn’t changed. Our clients are still primarily introducing brokers, correspondent clearing firms, self-clearing brokers, “piggyback” and start-up broker-dealers. And yes, we also do our fair share of RIA engagements, but in every case, we stay true to our core competencies, calling upon 35+ years of industry management experience.
It wasn’t long until we expanded our consulting services. A few years in, we became ACAMS certified and developed a service to provide the anti-money laundering (AML) independent testing service which broker-dealers are required to obtain annually. Every year since, our client base has continued to grow.
Complementing this, we expanded to offer even more compliance related services. In 2019, we were exceptionally pleased to announce that Bedford and Main Financial Consulting, Inc. was listed in the FINRA Compliance Vendor Directory.
Pivoting off of our active industry engagements, we also established a Securities Expert Witness and Litigation line of business that quickly proved to fit our business model like a hand in glove! It became very clear that our practical knowledge and experience in operational and compliance consulting, perfectly complimented supporting security litigations on both sides of the table.
While growth, expansion and developing new business lines has been fun, it simply reinforces our belief that business is founded on relationships. We have often said that we strongly believe this is a great industry, dominated by people of good character and integrity. We greatly appreciate the trust and support of our clients as we have built Bedford and Main.
