Bob Goldsmith Insights

Dear clients, colleagues, partners and friends,

We have spoken with many of you over the last few weeks as the COVID-19 situation has unfolded.  We hope that you, your team and your family are healthy and safe and are adjusting as well as possible to this rapidly changing environment. 

Just like you, we are working remotely.  Nonetheless, we are fully operational and are striving to understand this new reality.  We are working with clients as we always have – providing insights into the dynamics in the market, helping you find solutions to your challenges and delivering outcomes that serve your needs. 

While some industry sectors continue to perform through this pandemic, many of you are being challenged in unforeseen ways and are often alone in having to plot the course forward. We have a range of in-house skills to help with some of the critical elements of business continuity including financial, operational, planning, as well as people management. 

We strongly encourage you to reach out to a BCMS banker for support or just to let us know how you are doing.  Human contact seems more important than ever and we value the connection.  We are committed to helping either formally or even informally where and when we can.

BCMS has been working with private business owners for more than 30 years.  We have been here during the good times and also when things turned bad.  We believe in stability and look to be a source of informed and balanced guidance. While it is not business as usual, we know that this too will pass.  We are open for business and we are here to help.
