Clay Dunkle, aams®
Clay was born and raised in Sonoma about a mile from our home office. Having grown up here playing baseball, basketball, and soccer, he has gotten to know many of the local families that make our town so special. Now, as a financial advisor and a youth baseball coach, he is strengthening those relationships and building many new ones.
Clay’s interest in investing began when he was in grade school. His grandmother told him at 10 years old if he saved and invested a dime out of every dollar he made, he'd be a very wealthy man. She also gave him a book of Warren Buffet's investing principles, and this was the beginning of his endless love of education on all things investing.
He attained a B.S. in Agricultural Business from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he focused his educational efforts on finance, accounting, and risk management. Clay holds his Series 65 securities license with Sonoma Wealth Advisors, and serves in the capacity of an investment advisor representative. He also holds the Accredited Asset Management Specialist(SM) designation through the College for Financial Planning. A lover of learning and personal development, he is currently studying to become a Certified Financial Planner™.
When he’s not hard at work, Clay can be found somewhere outside with his friends and family, either exercising, playing golf, camping, adventuring the globe, or at a baseball tournament.

Best part of the job:
Sitting down, digging in, and finding the right solutions for our clients
I help clients develop and implement strategies to achieve their financial goals.
Whether it's saving for a kid's college, managing debt, mitigating taxes, or funding future expenses like real estate purchases or retirement, we work with you to create a custom plan designed to achieve your goals within your specific time frame.
Effective asset allocation acts as the cornerstone of a well-crafted investment strategy. As we develop your tailored portfolio, we invest in an asset mix that aligns with your risk tolerance, time horizon, and individual goals and values.
No financial plan is complete without safeguards in place. We work with you to design and implement a risk management strategy so that when disaster strikes, you have a cushion to mitigate financial loss.
