Who is Raymond James?

The name of the company comes from a merging of companies run by Robert A. James and Edward Raymond. Raymond James was incorporated as Robert A. James Investments in 1962. In 1964 Raymond and Associates merged into Robert A. James Investments and the firm of Raymond James & Associates was formed.

When Bob James founded Raymond James, he did so based on a belief that clients deserved more than help with investment decisions, they needed advice that considered their entire financial picture.

Today, that client-focused approach has extended to serve more than 2.9 million client accounts through 7,100 financial advisors in the United States, Canada and overseas. Further, the company has expanded through the years to serve corporations, institutions, and municipalities through significant capital markets, banking and asset management services.

No matter the business, we believe if we do what’s right for clients, we’ll help them achieve success while also realizing our own.  It’s that simple.
