Choice that revolves around you

And wherever you fit best, you can count on the full support and respect of Raymond James.

What could true choice mean for you? Select an affiliation type below and see for yourself.


Work with a firm, but for yourself.

Just because you prefer a more traditional setup doesn't mean your only option is running a traditional business.

The employee approach gives you all the resources, services and support you deserve and expect, and a degree of freedom you never thought possible.

Enjoy everything you'd expect from a traditional branch setting plus freedom you won't find anywhere else.
