BKD Wealth Advisors, LLC Sponsor the Traders Point $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby

Zionsville, IN – June 22, 2012 – Set along the countryside of Zionsville, IN, just north of Indianapolis, the Traders Point Hunt Charity Horse Show is sprawled along a 250-acre facility-the ideal spot for the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby. BKD Wealth Advisors, LLC (BKDWA), an investment advisory firm, has stepped up to sponsor the popular derby event.

 BKDWA is a wholly owned subsidiary of BKD,LLP,

offering wealth management services for affluent individuals and families and investment consulting and compliance services for institutional clients. BKDWA has numerous clients who participate in the Traders Point Hunt Charity Horse Show (TPHCHS).

“We are focused on contributing to the communities where we have offices, and we have a very large office in Indianapolis, which is just south of Zionsville in Indiana,” Senior Managing Advisor Edward “JR” Humphreys said. “We have several clients who are contributors to the horse show. We believe participating both with our office in the area and our clients’ existing charities will not only show support for our clients, but also provide outreach in the surrounding community.”

BKDWA is known for building trusted relationships and tailoring integrated solutions to help their clients meet their goals. Their advisors combine their knowledge and wisdom with the expertise of top financial institutions. BKDWA is extremely connected to their communities. The personnel serve on boards and committees for the charitable organizations they support. They see, firsthand, the needs of the community, and offer their help as neighbors and friends. They use the BKD Foundation, the firm’s charitable arm, to raise and distribute funds to 501(c)(3) organizations.

 Humphrey’s thirteen-year-old daughter Jordan competed at the TPHCHS last year, and she is one of the driving forces behind his philanthropic inspiration to sponsor the show. He has seen the benefits of her years of riding, competition and her advancement to the next steps of the sport. He understands the bond between horse and human-a unique phenomenon he wants to be able to share.

“I think that the bond that exists between horse and rider is really what make this show so special,” Humphreys stated. “My background is what really pushed me to support this show. Horses can improve children’s lives. People assume it is only about the money, but the interaction between children and horses is amazing. I sat on the Board of Morning Dove, and what I have seen between autistic children, veterans and disabled persons and the bond they have on a horse is so apparent and inspirational. I think you can see this bond at the horse show, too.”

The $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, presented by BKDWA, will take center stage on Saturday, August 11, 2012, at 2 p.m. The derby event will see the top hunter competitors vie for the prestigious honors, as well as compete for the 2013 USHJA International Hunter Derby Finals qualifying points.
