Financial Planning & Investment Services

Strong Platform. Flexible Options.

Our firm offers a comprehensive approach to your wealth management business. We focus on building a strong platform with flexible options for you and your client. With hundreds of millions of assets currently under management and advisement, we have the size to provide scale and cost efficiencies, yet are small enough to allow you to maintain client intimacy and the ability to provide custom, life-relative solutions.

 

Advisors need consistent support and cutting-edge strategies to compete in this ever changing market. Our team of specialists have the knowledge and experience to complement your current business model while opening new opportunities to gain access to new clients.

Customized Investment Planning

 

We provide an expanded platform managed by a team of committed and experienced professionals. BCJ provides unique portfolios designed to actively manage risk/return metrics to increase client success. We offer both traditional strategic allocations as well as models that are more actively managed tactically and are more unconstrained. Some advisors just adopt our models. Others use these models to integrate with their own core strategies. We also provide ongoing market commentary, written in house and distributed to advisors, clients and on our blog. We host a monthly update call for all advisors on our platform.

We have worked with some of the leading names in the investment business like BlackRock® and Ned Davis Research to develop a unique set of model portfolios for advisors to use. We continually develop our offerings based upon the needs of advisors and clients. We follow a rigid process of evaluating risks and strategies that have evidence illustrating their superior and unique success.

We do not just build portfolios based upon wholesaler’s perks like lunches, golf or swag. We develop strategies based upon a strict scientific method of building, testing and continually reevaluating those strategies to make sure that they do exactly what we expect them to do. Using a blend of fundamental and technical analysis, our team of experts designs our model portfolios with client success in mind in the most efficient manner we can deliver the model. We also provide you with the tools to build your own models outside of our offerings using Adhesion’s SMA database.

By continuing to develop and evaluate our processes, BCJ is able to offer world class management using liquid ETFs and funds. Through our partnerships with custodians like Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade and Adhesion, we can deliver institutional levels of sophistication to high net worth client, institutions and every day investors. Our infrastructure and techniques enable us to manage portfolios and models daily so that we are never surprised by managers.

You will find a simple and efficient investment process that you can adopt and mold to your unique business. We offer multiple styles, strategies and support to make you successful as a wealth manager. You will have access to technology to help give you guidance, materials to help you explain as well as access to reporting that provides you with performance and account level detail, simplifying the process for both you and your client.

NextLevel(k)

BCJ 401(k) Services

NextLevel(k) is our flexible and comprehensive service option for 401(k) services. Driven by robust technology, systems and services our program gives advisors the unique ability to help create successful retirement plan outcomes for both plan sponsors and participants.

 

We have aligned our model with RPAG to provide breadth and depth of support. As a member of RPAG, we are backed by an extensive team of retirement plan experts, and we leverage the RPAG platform to work closely with clients, becoming strategic partners, focusing on their business just as much as they do.

 

Our service model is a comprehensive offering and provides advisors with everything from plan design, benchmarking and investment advice, to TDF suitability, fiduciary compliance and support for participant outcomes.

 

Our program is unique because its flexibility allows you to determine the level in which you would like to manage your cases. Whether you simply want to refer the business to the program, you want to maintain the relationship but not the fiduciary role, or you want to fully emerge yourself in the management and fiduciary roles of the plan – we let you choose, and we provide the rest.

About BCJ

At BCJ, we believe in a combination of fundamental investment analysis combined with a quantitative approach. We focus on the goal of providing the best of asset allocation, along with active risk management, to achieve greater returns in times of market expansion. We seek to provide real and active risk management to dramatically reduce downside risk during the painful and extreme downturns of the market.

 

To do this we have partnered with BlackRock® and, for a unique strategy, Ned Davis Research. BCJ uses these two sources to bring unique risk management along with tremendous performance that has proven to be consistent and statistically relevant. This is especially true for clients that seek consistency of returns along with low cost and complete transparency.

The BCJ Investment Platform is built to support the individual advisor’s ability to customize solutions for the client’s goals while relieving advisors of the responsibilities of model creation, management and trading. The firm’s approach is not to have a fixed, firm level solution, but to create a number of internal strategic and tactical models, as well provide access to outside SMA programs that the advisor can blend together to create the proper investment portfolio within the context of the client’s goals. Based on partnerships with industry leaders like BlackRock®, and along with customized and unique strategies designed and maintained exclusively at BCJ, we offer advisors the opportunity to set themselves apart as leaders in asset management.
