The Raymond James A&D advisory practice was originally founded in 2009 as part of the Raymond James Energy Investment Banking Group. With the acquisition of Morgan Keegan and Albrecht & Associates in 2012, the A&D practice has grown to be one of the largest, most experienced and most technically oriented A&D practices in the market. The combined practice, Raymond James | albrecht (“RJ|a”), is headquartered in Houston, Texas, and maintains an office in Denver, Colorado.
