Leadership from the President

We strive to provide the best possible service, technology, research, financial planning support, expertise and compliance protection and is the reason BDFS/IAC has one of the highest retention rates in the industry. Simply stated, we are committed to impacting every financial advisor's business by serving as a value added partner.

Our Culture
BDFS is an independent broker-dealer for financial professionals dedicated to offering unbiased investment advice to clients. We are fully devoted to our four core values: integrity, action, commitment, dedication, and solutions. We believe a firm's culture influences its reputation. We think you can take a hard look at a firm's stated mission and values and compare that to how the firm's management and staff engage with advisors and manage business activity. Since our beginning, our founder and all our firm's professionals have been committed to our set of core values that shape everything we do.

Our Stability
BDFS / IAC is financially sound and continues to maintain a strong commitment to providing resources and support that help our advisors serve the needs of their clients. We have spent the last few decades consciously building a structure to ensure continued success. The firm has three majority owners and is an ESOP company. In terms of due diligence, we have long mastered offering a broad product footprint with thorough due diligence based on our view that quality and choice are equally important.

Our core competencies include:

IMPACTFUL
We impact and add value to our advisors’ growth and transition with our 30+ years of experience and continual pursuit of knowledge.
