Counsel to further the vision
of entrepreneurs

As an entrepreneur, you likely have little spare time outside of your professional pursuits and personal commitments to devote to the management of your wealth. You seek a team who can organize and simplify your financial matters.

We’ll work closely with you to ensure we understand your comprehensive financial and professional objectives to set you on a tailored path toward your future. We have expertise in a wide array of services and strategies, including asset protection, cash flow management, tax planning, liability protection and financing. Whether retirement is in the near or distant future, we can also advise on both employee retention strategies and your succession plan to ensure your professional needs align with your personal goals.

With the sophisticated research and analytics of both internal and external expertise behind us, we can identify products and opportunities we’re confident can support your needs for preservation as well as liquidity. We understand that you’ve worked diligently to get to where you are and will do everything possible to support your vision for the future with the prudent and strategic management of your wealth.

For 30 years Joe, 57, has built a successful enterprise and, as such, his personal and professional finances are closely intertwined and pose certain complexities as he prepares for retirement. Additionally, given the varying nature of his business dealings, he wants to ensure he can actively minimize risk in his portfolio while still generating favorable returns and maintaining liquidity.

To help Joe move toward the future with financial confidence, we would first closely review his comprehensive personal and professional financial picture. This would include looking closely at his asset allocations and potentially replacing low-yielding fixed income or other investments with others, designed to provide similarly low risk while still generating favorable returns.

As Joe continues to advance his business and pursue professional opportunities, we can help him address borrowing needs, such as with a securities based line of credit (SBL). We’ll also closely monitor his portfolio and wealth management strategy, keeping regular contact and staying abreast of any changes in his situation, to ensure Joe’s finances continue to support his lifestyle and long-term goals.

Prior to making any investment decision, you should consult with your financial advisor about your individual situation.

A Securities Based Line of Credit (SBLC) may not be suitable for all clients. The proceeds from a SBLC cannot be used to purchase or carry margin securities. Raymond James Bank does not accept RJF stock as pledged securities towards a SBLC. Borrowing on securities based lending products and using securities as collateral may involve a high degree of risk including unintended tax consequences and the possible need to sell your holdings, which may lead to a significant impact on long-term investment goals. Market conditions can magnify any potential for loss. If the market turns against the client, he or she may be required to quickly deposit additional securities and/or cash in the account(s) or pay down the loan to avoid liquidation. The securities in the Pledged Account(s) may be sold to meet the Collateral Call, and the firm can sell the client's securities without contacting them. A client is not entitled to choose which securities or other assets in his or her account are liquidated or sold to meet a Collateral Call. The firm can increase its maintenance requirements at any time and is not required to provide a client advance written notice. A client is not entitled to an extension of time on a Collateral Call. Increased interest rates could also affect LIBOR rates that apply to your SBLC causing the cost of the credit line to increase significantly. The interest rates charged are determined by the market value of pledged assets and the net value of the client's Capital Access account.
