Choice that revolves around you
AdvisorChoice® is an affiliation option platform that puts the advisor, not the model, first. It gives you the freedom to determine the approach and degree of independence that works for you. And wherever you fit best, you can count on the full support and respect of Raymond James.
Take a more traditional approach, with the freedom to run your business your way and the full support of a branch office, as an employee advisor. Or, if you prefer a bank environment, build your business in a local Raymond James-affiliated bank or credit union. If you're looking for the autonomy and flexibility of an independent model but prefer the administrative support of an employee affiliation, explore an independent employee option that gives you the flexibility to run your own branch while remaining a Raymond James employee.
Realize the benefits of independence while still enjoying all the administrative support of an employee affiliation as an independent employee. Or make the move to true independence with an independent contractor option that puts you in charge – of both your practice and the resources you utilize. You can also take complete control as an independent RIA, or develop your very own mix of independence, support, and fee- and commission-based business as a hybrid RIA. Realize the benefits of independence while still enjoying all the administrative support of an employee affiliation as an independent employee.
Gain full access to robust resources and back-office support to help you run your existing independent RIA or launch a new one. Increase the capabilities and reach of your firm with a correspondent option that provides extensive clearing and custodial support with an emphasis on outstanding service. Or, if you're a bank or credit union manager, explore an option that will help you establish or expand an investment program at your institution.
