About Us


Meet a compliance team you actually like.

All compliance professionals are not created equal. At Burch, we believe compliance shouldn’t be a burden, but an enhancement to your business. Best practices can help, not hinder. We see ourselves as your partner – your partner who can aid in ensuring that what you are doing meets all applicable securities rules and regulations. Plus, we are nice to work with and we’re confident you will agree.

Our Founder, Randy Burch, has been in securities compliance for over 45 years, 11 of those as a regulator with the NASD (now FINRA). After H&R Block acquired his previous broker-dealer, Randy formed Burch in 1999.

We have since become one of the best-known independent contractor broker-dealers for corporate finance, investment banking, and middle-market M&A professionals nationwide. We have a strong niche in servicing boutique middle-market advisory groups wishing to remain independent and outsource their compliance. We are experienced in serving as a broker-dealer platform for private fund managers and alternative investment groups who seek to have a captive institutional sales team licensed to market offerings through wealth managers and brokerage firms. 

With a dedicated team of non-producing compliance professionals, we are a small family owned and operated business. Groups that join us usually stay with us. That means something and we are proud of these lasting relationships.

We want to handle your compliance and licensing needs. Our staff has the right skills and experience to support your business model. Randy always says, “We maintain the racetrack so you can run your horses.” Sound good? Give us a call at 816-842-4660. We respect your privacy and all calls are confidential.
