Clayton W. James, CFM, registered financial advisor and the managing director of Jamestowne Investments, LLC, will lead the class.

The Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL) will explore the world of high finance with “Your Complete Financial Journey: Understanding and Maximizing your Opportunities in the Global Investment Markets.”

The three-session course will be taught by Clayton W. James on June 6, 13, and 20 (Tuesdays), from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the main branch of the Gloucester County Public Library at 6920 Main Street in Gloucester Courthouse.

This course will undertake an in-depth examination of the global financial markets, including domestic and international equities, fixed-income, and alternative investment asset classes. The risks and opportunities associated with each investment choice will be considered, and participants will gain the tools and knowledge to make confident and educated investment decisions. Instructor Clayton James will discuss the current interest rate environment, as well as the impact a changing yield curve will have on retirement income planning. His advice will allow investors to balance their desire for growth against their income needs, and to protect their assets from fraud and exploitation.
