Bear Mountain Capital Inc.

We know the lay of the land and are ready to help.

Joe Day, CFA

Joe likes to speak about himself in the third person. But, who doesn’t? Joe was born and raised in Washington State. He’s been fortunate to live everywhere from Italy and Ireland to Washington DC and San Francisco and loves to travel, ski and be on the water with his wife and two boys. He has been in the investment advisory business since 2002 (when he first moved to Seattle) and hasn’t looked back. He launched Bear Mountain Capital Inc. in 2009, in the heart of the financial crisis. He realized then that clients deserved more and he knew he could give it to them. He’s been working toward that goal ever since.

Luke Collova, CFP®

Luke grew up in Little Canada. No, not Canada, Little Canada–it’s a little town in Minnesota, but yes, he loves hockey! He also loves his clients and caring for their needs. That’s one of the reasons he left the insurance industry and became an advisor with Bear Mountain Capital. Luke attended the University of Puget Sound, where he earned a degree in business. If you go looking for Luke when he isn’t at work, a good place to start would be in the backcountry of the Cascade Mountains. Whether backpacking with his wife, watching her routinely catch the biggest trout, or standing atop the next remote powder line ready to shred, he enjoys life to the fullest. Back in Seattle, you’ll find him volunteering at local arts organizations, working in his vegetable garden, or making fresh pasta for friends.

Riley Nichols

Riley grew up in Montana but decided to trade the snow and the Rockies for the rain and the Cascades. But in the middle of this trade, he made a pit stop in Spokane to attend Gonzaga University. He left in 2017 with degrees in Accounting and Business Administration and then quickly made the jump to Seattle to find a home at Bear Mountain Capital. Since starting on as the Operations and Client Services Associate, Riley has passed his Series 65 exam to become an integral part of the business. As we grow, Riley hopes to transform his desk into a traveling office that can move between downtown Seattle and the ski hill at a moment’s notice. We encourage his efforts.
