Douglas L. Cooper Senior Vice President, Investments Wealth Management Specialist

Doug is a Wealth Management Specialist with more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry. His focus is working with high-net-worth clients on financial planning, trusts, retirement planning, charitable giving strategies and investment management, including individual stock selection and bond laddering strategies.

He takes a diversified approach to managing his practice and makes use of both separately managed accounts and a more traditional approach that includes individual equities, fixed-income investments, variable annuities and mutual funds.

Doug opened the Fredericksburg office of Raymond James in 2006 after 17 years with two regional firms that were subsequently merged. He believed that the interests of his clients are best served by working for an independent and publicly traded company. Doug researched the different options and found Raymond James to be the right fit for his clients and himself. He serves as a member of the Raymond James Retirement Solutions Advisory Board.

Highly active in community organizations, Doug is a sponsor of the Central Rappahannock Heritage Center. He is also an annual sponsor of The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region’s Holiday Festivities. He is currently serving as the Corporate Sponsorship Chairperson for the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Richmond (Fredericksburg Region). Doug is a member of the Colonial Beach Economic Development Committee. He formerly served on the board of the Fredericksburg Area Museum and Beth Sholom Temple.

Born in Colonial Beach, Virginia, Doug is a graduate of the University of Maryland. As an avid alumnus, he has served on the board of the Terrapin Club, the scholarship arm of the school's athletic program.

Doug and his wife, Randee, have been married for nearly 40 years and have two sons, Josh (a graduate of the College of Charleston) and Andrew (a graduate of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill). When not busy serving his clients, Doug enjoys UNC and UMD sports, fishing with his sons and reading 20th century American history. He and Randee enjoy traveling and anything that involves their family.
