R. Bernard Clay has been in the Financial Services Industry since 1978 when he joined Prudential. Along the way, he has worked both as a Stock Broker and Investment Advisor with his series 6, 7, and 63 licenses.
Although Bernard enjoyed working with his clients, educating the public is his real passion; teaching others how the stock market works, how to make wise decisions with their retirement and investment monies, and even how to trade stocks. He found the typical role of “broker/salesman” tied his hands in this regard. With that in mind, Bernard sold his successful brokerage business in 2008 and in the same year founded Clay Capital Management, LLC, a Registered Investment Advisor with the State of Colorado. Bernard has his Series 63 and 65 licenses with the State of Colorado.
Bernard is currently one of only a handful of professionals in Colorado who have received certification from National Social Security Advisors which is dedicated to the training, certification, and continued education of advisors seeking to assist retirees through the complex maze of Social Security.
He is also currently enrolled in the Market Technicians Association Chartered Market Technician (CMT) program and was featured in the March 2014 edition of their magazine “Technically Speaking.”
