Access BCM’s ETF-based solutions through Fidelity’s Wealth Advisor Solutions (WAS®) Referral Program.
Beaumont, as a wealth manager, has been participating in the Fidelity WAS Referral program since its origin in 1994. In 2009, Beaumont Capital Management (BCM), our ETF strategist division, began offering investment strategies that seek growth and large loss avoidance in bear markets.
As a firm, we believe there is often a disconnect between an investment manager’s view of risk and that of the investor. It’s safe to assume that all investors share a common goal – to avoid losing a lot of money. This is at the core of Beaumont’s investment philosophy, which is to deliver solutions that seek to avoid large portfolio losses. We seek to align our portfolios with the risks that are most important to investors and offer solutions to meet the needs of virtually any type of investor.
As an investment advisor, you have the opportunity to bring unique, differentiated investment solutions to your clients. Our roots are in wealth management, so we analyze the markets and manage money through the lens of an advisor. Whether you are looking for core strategies to build an asset allocation, or diversified total portfolio solutions for your clients, BCM can help you and your clients.

Every investor has their own financial objectives and investment needs. As a Fidelity WAS® client, you have the opportunity to work directly with your Fidelity Representative to determine your investment goals and risk tolerance. Whether you determine that a tactical growth manager that focuses on large loss avoidance would benefit your portfolio, or that you need help with comprehensive planning and account management, our relationship managers are here to help you select the investment(s) and services that best suit your individual needs and circumstances.
