BCA is a middle-market focused investment bank now based in Franklin’s Cool Springs area.

A group of execs from Nashville’s locally owned financial powerhouse and investment banking firm J.C. Bradford & Co., including Tom Wylly and Kevin Murphy, start BCA just as Bradford completes a deal to be acquired by UBS Warburg.

While the firm’s traditional role is in the health care and HIT space, it also invests in up-and-coming tech firms. The investment firm plays a key role in the formation and development of some of Nashville’s premier health care companies.
