Raymond James welcomes Missouri investment broker managing more than $250 million

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Raymond James recently welcomed investment broker Bryan Cernicek, AAMS®, to Raymond James & Associates (RJA) – the firm’s employee advisor channel – in St. Louis, Missouri, according to Michael O’Meara, Midwest regional director for RJA.

Cernicek arrives from Edward Jones, where he previously managed approximately $256 million in client assets. He leads the Cernicek wealth management team, which includes senior client service associate Lisa Church. Together they provide sophisticated wealth management services to clients, which include business owners, families and individuals planning for or living in retirement.

“I’ve enjoyed many successes throughout my journey as a financial advisor; however, when looking at the future of the industry and the next phase of my career, I felt strongly that I needed more flexibility when working with my clients,” said Cernicek, senior vice president, investments. “Raymond James stood out due to the flexibility it offers advisors, unique service offerings, technology and commitment to client success.”

A native of St. Louis, Cernicek spent nearly three decades at Edward Jones, becoming an advisor with the firm in 1999. He is a Truman State graduate with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and earned the professional designation of Accredited Asset Manager SpecialistSM from the College for Financial Planning.
