This national alliance significantly elevates BrightPath’s profile and ability to deliver the ideas, insights and intelligence that help clients make the best decisions about their financial lives. The BAM ALLIANCE also provides BrightPath’s clients with instant access to some of the leading thought leaders in the investing world, such as Larry Swedroe and Carl Richards.
“We have always prided ourselves on how we deliver unique, comprehensive wealth management solutions to our clients,” said Pete Kozak, Principal of BrightPath Wealth Planning. “The BAM ALLIANCE expands our reach. It enhances our ability to bring nationally-recognized thought leaders and resources to the table with our clients and help them safeguard their financial futures."
The BAM ALLIANCE is the formalization of a network that has existed since 1997, when BAM Advisor Services began providing comprehensive back-office solutions to registered investment advisor firms across the country. There are now more than 130 member firms of the BAM ALLIANCE, serving more than 15,000 clients and their families throughout the country and managing $17.5 billion of collective assets (as of Oct. 31, 2012.)
For example, many clients have been worried about how the presidential election should impact their investment strategies. Larry Swedroe, director of research for the BAM ALLIANCE, created a video for TheBAMAlliance.com aimed at helping these clients from across the country understand the importance of sticking to their plans to be better positioned to achieve their long-term goals. We encourage you to visit our new site and listen to our director of research.
