Read our essential guide to hiring a financial planner!

There are many things that financial planners can do for you. It’s best for you to know exactly what to expect. For example, some people assume that brokers do the same thing as financial advisors (they don’t!).

Frey Financial

Where your legacy is our legacy.

Here at Frey Financial, wealth management isn’t just a career. It’s our way of life. In fact, financial planning runs in the family. Clay Frey has been a financial advisor since 1980 and founded Frey Financial in 2006. His daughter, Chrissy, joined the firm as an independent financial advisor in 2008. However, our roots trace back a generation further—Clay’s father was a financial advisor with Investors Diversified Services (IDS) in the 1950’s.


Along with a strong family history of wealth management, we are also proud to showcase our family’s military history throughout our office. Many of our clients are quick to notice the Navy-themed décor in our conference room highlighting Clay’s parent’s wedding in Sasebo, Japan during the Korean War (Conflict). Clay’s Father was a Naval Lt.-Navigator on the destroyer USS Pennsylvania in WWII and also served in the Korean War. Clay’s Mother served as an Army M.A.S.H. doctor in Korea and Japan. But our business isn’t about our family. It’s about what we can do for you and yours. We’re here to help your family build generational wealth through personalized retirement planning, tax reduction strategies and long-term wealth management.

I graduated from the University of Texas in San Antonio with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and a minor in Business Management. I began my financial services career as an advisor with Morgan Stanley. Since joining Frey Financial in 2008, as an independent Investment Adviser Representative, I have dedicated myself to providing world-class client service and professional advice, free from proprietary influences present at many Wall Street firms.

I have helped many employees retire early and with dignity. I am also an associated partner with AZCA Financial Group, LLC in Carlsbad, CA and Scottsdale, AZ.

I am passionate about fund-raising for the local community. I am a founding member of the Foothills Club of Tucson and I have served on the boards of several other nonprofit organizations in southern Arizona. I am a proud third-generation financial advisor and a loving mother to my beautiful daughter, Fredricka.
