The BCM Market Risk Model™

The BCM Market Risk Model™

Our economy cycles between growth and recession, periods of rising and falling inflation, and fluctuating interest rates. At any point, there are asset classes that lead and those that lag.

Exhaustive research has allowed us to identify particular data which can be useful in assessing the health of the economy and the financial markets. Over the last 30+ years, we have developed and deployed the BCM Market Risk Model™. The Model is our distinct competitive advantage and is the foundation of our investment advisory business.


How it works

The Model uses hard data from three broad categories (Financial Data, Economic Data & Monetary Data) to help make an objective assessment of the current level of risk in financial markets. These readings then become an objective guide in our efforts to make investment decisions for our clients. As such, we look to the Model to assess both the likelihood of sustained advances in the economy and the stock market, as well as to prepare for pronounced declines in the economy and the stock market.
