Benjamin Bernard

Head trader, CFP®

Ben’s from Nashville, the oldest of four kids. His father taught him to cook when he was a young child. Perhaps that’s why as an adult his idea of fun is bringing in 320 pounds of live crawfish from Louisiana to host a 150-person crawfish boil. Ben graduated from Vassar with a BA in economics.

At Bridgewater, he works with clients and focuses on investment research. He’s also carved out a path to become the firm’s primary trader. An itinerant photographer, Ben’s fascinated by people. On weekends, you might see him exploring the city by foot, camera in hand.
