If you are reading this you are most likely looking for someone else to manage your money, whether you have tried this yourself or have an existing money manager, you probably feel you could be doing better. Or you are just not happy with statements half-inch thick because you own too many positions. We tend to not rely on others to manage money; after the debacle in 2008, entrusting our own portfolios or our clients’ to someone else is not an option. We eschew Modern Portfolio Theory and the need for standard asset allocation; a portfolio is about smart positions in strong asset classes.
Many people prefer to live with the simple 4% solution, that being you spend 4% of your liquid net worth no matter where it comes from. Having a clear picture of your total assets, those held at Raymond James and those held outside, provides you the knowledge of where the liquidity can come from. We can accomplish this by using our Goal Planning & Monitoring tool or through our Raymond James Investor Access site.

Receiving a substantial sum of money presents opportunities, but also challenges. This contradiction extends to the emotions you may feel after a windfall, whether through inheritance, the sale of a business, lottery, divorce or a legal settlement.

We realize women are a unique segmentation and often have complex financial needs and situations, such as time away from careers to care for family or aging parents, the likelihood of marrying later in life or finding yourself suddenly single from a divorce. Women have longer life spans leading many of you to take on additional financial responsibilities in the later stages of your life. We take the time to understand your personal investment goals and priorities.
