“We began doing business with BDCA after an SEC audit. Our B/D had been attempting to keep up with new guidelines and pronouncements, but we recognized this difficult challenge and the need for professional help in this area. We were referred to BDCA and our overall compliance program has vastly improved. BDCA overhauled our written supervisory procedures; oversees our continuing education program; and, conducts annual internal audits. As a result, we are much better prepared for regulatory audits. In the meantime, we formed a new B/D and BDCA led us through that long and tedious process from start to finish. We are grateful to have this relationship with BDCA which allows us to devote our time and energy to our money making endeavors while having the confidence that we are in full compliance of securities laws, rules and regulations.”
