About Raymond James

Raymond James buildings in St. Petersburg, Florida

Commitment and dedication worth mentioning

Since 1962, Raymond James advisors have been creating personalized financial plans for clients. Our founder, Bob James, was a pioneer of financial planning, bucking Wall Street’s product-first mentality in favor of a belief that financial professionals could do more than sell stocks – they could help build more secure futures.

For more than 50 years, Bob’s ideas and ideals have helped Raymond James grow steadily to become one of the largest independent financial services firms in the country, but our core values of client first, independence, conservatism and integrity ensure we’ll never be so big that we don’t have time for what matters most: you and your family. That dedication results in long-term corporate stability and a unique culture focused on the success of advisors and their clients. Ours is a commitment you won’t find everywhere. And it’s a commitment others find noteworthy.
