Occasionally, RJA may execute eligible orders received from clients and other broker dealers against the firm’s proprietary inventory. RJA realizes 100% of any trading profits generated from trading with client orders as principal. While RJA does not receive payment for order flow in equity securities, some market centers do provide liquidity rebates.

Payment for order flow arrangements with Option Exchange Specialist Units
Raymond James & Associates routes Option orders to all of the U.S. Option Exchanges. It is common for specialists at the exchanges to make payments to brokerage firms for orders executed on that exchange. We do not receive payment for all trades, and all contracts of a particular trade may not generate payment. The routing decision is in no way influenced by the prospect of receiving such payment.
