A local partnership rooted in impactful results.

As a dedicated public finance partner, Raymond James provides innovative strategies and client-focused service to municipalities across Indiana from our offices in Indianapolis and Crown Point. Our work is fueled by the close relationships we continue building with issuers and defined by our deep commitment to Indiana. Because this is our home, too. In fact, we have more than 375 associates living and working in 41 cities across the state with an annual payroll of $51.6 million.

In addition to our steadfast commitment to Indiana, Raymond James Public Finance consistently ranks among the Top 10 underwriters of municipal bonds nationwide and leading five underwriters of K-12 issues nationally.* With 21 municipal institutional sales professionals and approximately 160 fixed income generalists, we make it our mission to deliver outstanding service at the lowest possible borrowing cost to our clients.

Drawing from 30-plus years of experience, our team has completed over 1,000 bond issues.** And we do it all backed by the strength of Raymond James – an international financial leader with 330 retail employees managing 106,323 retail accounts worth $19 billion in Indiana alone.
