M. Anthony Barrett
After earning his degree in economics from Colgate University, where he was also an all-conference player and captain of the football team, Tony Barrett entered the financial industry as a mergers and acquisitions analyst. Then he quickly realized that his love was for people and problem solving, not simply crunching numbers. He soon joined Merrill Lynch as a financial advisor trainee, and after a successful start to his advisory career, entered the management ranks at UBS. Tony served in several leadership roles, including launching a diversity training program that sought out new and creative methods to hire and train a more diverse financial advisor population.
In 2009, Tony joined Raymond James to lead its wealth management efforts in Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland. He has since assumed responsibility for the Greater Philadelphia marketplace. In addition to his role leading the Delaware Valley Complex, Tony co-founded the Black Financial Advisors Network in 2013 and still maintains his position as the chairperson of the group today.
During his tenure with Raymond James, Tony has been recognized as being a Top 100 Branch Manager by On Wall Street in 2017, 2018 and 2019. He earned the Raymond James Complex Manager of the Year award for 2017, and in 2019, Tony was named to the Raymond James Branch Management Leadership Club.
