Raymond James has a commitment to affordable housing that dates back nearly seven decades. The Raymond James National Housing Group was the firm’s first specialty group within its Public Finance department, and is now one of the largest and longest standing municipal housing groups in the country. We have structured more than 1,500 mortgage revenue bond issues totaling more than $50 billion, and in 2018, we once again ranked as a Top 10 national underwriter for affordable housing bond issues.* In addition, Raymond James is recognized as one of the most innovative firms in the affordable housing industry, creating market timely products, such as our TBA-based “Turnkey” program, a first of its kind program created for housing finance agencies (HFAs) which has supported over $15 billion of single family loan reservations since this pioneering program was first launched in 2012.
