My clients are my partners – when they thrive, I thrive.

Bill Cordell, CFP®


Financial Advisor

Since 1986, Bill has been helping his clients calculate what it will take to achieve their goals. Working closely with individual investors, families and business owners, he develops and maintains customized financial plans designed to make the most of the present while preserving the future.

After serving as a vice president of investments with Smith Barney for more than 22 years, Bill chose to join Raymond James in 2008 because of the opportunity the firm gave him to shape his practice in the way that’s best for his clients.

Bill is a graduate of the University of Georgia, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in journalism. He also graduated from the New York Institute of Photography. In 1995, Bill completed coursework at the College of Financial Planning and went on to receive the Certified Financial Planner™ certification – earned by meeting rigorous experience, education and ethical standards.

Locally, Bill sits on the advisory board for Gulf Coast Community College’s WKGC public radio station.

A Georgia native, Bill now calls Panama City Beach home. He and his wife, Martha, have two grown daughters and three grandchildren. In his spare time, Bill enjoys photography.
