T.J. Gilden, AIF®
Financial Planning Associate
As a recent college graduate, Tyler “TJ” Gilden is in a unique position to apply the latest wealth management educational principles with our BCM Fiduciary System™ to help our individual clients achieve their meaningful life goals.
At a young age, TJ demonstrated an instinctual interest in money and investing and was attracted to the world of finance. He learned first-hand the value of saving consistently, choosing the right investments and not letting the volatilities of the market affect him. He always knew he wanted to work with people and is therefore naturally suited to his career choice in financial planning. He has developed a perspective on service that is rooted in helpful collaboration and natural insight.
Twice our intern and now full-time member of our BCM Wilmington team, TJ seeks to help our clients “look forward to retirement, not be stressed about their financial future” and hopes that by providing clients with personalized financial planning guidelines, they will be able to stay focused on the big picture and not let small things derail them from their goals. In his role at BCM, TJ assists and supports the Director of Financial Planning by meeting directly with clients to gather information, providing analysis about financial options, using data to make projections, and assisting with recommendations and delivery of plans.
TJ graduated with a degree in Wealth Management from Coastal Carolina University where he was a member of the investment club and tutored student athletes in their business and finance courses. Before moving back to Chester County, PA, and coming on as our Financial Planning Associate, TJ worked part-time for BCM at our South Carolina branch office and at PCS Retirement, supporting retirement plan participants with their financial questions. He holds an Accredited Investment Fiduciary® Designation (AIF®) and demonstrates the competence and ethical standards required to carry out a fiduciary standard of care and serve the best interest of all BCM clients.
In his spare time, TJ enjoys playing a lot of golf, spending time outdoors, hiking, eating seafood and hanging out with his dog, Theo.
