About me


Ben May is a Wealth Advisor at Truist Bank with over 40 years of experience in the securities industry. Since moving back to Nashville, he has shifted his focus from the institutional bond business to personal wealth.

Ben uses his deep knowledge of financial markets and business management skills to advise high-net-worth clients on creative solutions to their complex financial issues. He believes planning is the most important building block of a client’s financial puzzle, which is why he works with them to gather the information necessary to formulate durable, long-term strategies and relationships based on their individual needs and goals. Then, he teams with accomplished Truist specialists in asset management, estate planning, and risk management, to help develop and execute their plan. 

Ben began his Wall Street career in the corporate bond department of Drexel Burnham Lambert, before moving to Dillon Read Senior VP to head their high yield bond trading. He then transitioned to Wachovia Corporation, where he ran the fixed income sales, trading, research and capital markets department.

Personal Interests

Over the last decade, Ben has been able to realize his lifelong desire to travel. He has visited every continent, except Antarctica (to come), with the highlights being Egypt, Patagonia, Vietnam, and Russia. While he enjoys playing golf and the camaraderie that comes with it, Ben and his wife, Karen, derive the most pleasure in life from watching their three daughters, now adults, grow into being wonderful and productive people.
