BDMC is the asset management arm and a DBA of Black Diamond Marketing Communications, Inc. It is a privately held corporation investing its own capital and does not seek, solicit or invest outside client moneys. It began in the wake of the founder’s tenure on the trading floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and his involvement in Harvey L. Christensen Real Estate and Insurance Agency, a family owned and operated real estate investment company. The founder spent nearly a decade on the CBOE working with and executing “block” orders for institutional money managers, firm traders and market makers, and more than 30 years working in the family real estate business. Upon leaving the CBOE, the founder continued trading using many of the same hedged trading strategies employed by institutional money managers and prop traders. Today, BDMC’s reason-for-being is to provide a vehicle to manage the assets of its founder and efficiently deploy capital in the markets through proprietary trading strategies in a way that maximizes returns while minimizing and tightly managing risk.
BDMC does not seek, solicit or accept investors that are not eligible family clients, as defined in the rules promulgated under the U.S. Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended. BDMC is a private company, managing the assets of its founder. It primarily invests in discretionary long/short equities, derivatives and real estate instruments. As such, it is not required to register as an investment adviser with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
