G. David Biddle
Founder, Biddle Capital Management
G David Biddle, AIF® founded Biddle Capital Management (BCM) in 1996 after several very successful years at a traditional sales based financial firm. BCM was started to focus on fee based investment and financial advice that was focused on the client. Dave was an advocate for the fiduciary concept that was budding in the late 1990’s. The early client focus was on retirees and pre-retirees to provide them with independent client focused advice for a secure future.
As the fiduciary concept grew and the investment management process at BCM matured there was an obvious link with ERISA 401(k) retirement plan management. Dave was one of a limited number of advisors who were serving retirement plans as a fiduciary. Eventually BCM Retirement Solutions was established as a division of BCM to support and help manage 401(k) plans. A specific division was needed to develop and support all the complex fiduciary requirements of retirement plans. After the 2006 ERISA law amendments that brought 403(b) plans into similar compliance with 401(k) plans, Dave began to educate and assist nonprofit 403(b) plan sponsors in upgrading their plans. The culmination of the work with retirement plan was published in Dave’s book Managing Retirement Plans in 2016.
