Our team’s more than 75 years of combined financial experience is certainly significant, but what is equally impressive is how we combine each team member’s area of expertise to address your needs. We work as a team. As our professional athlete clients can attest, there is no greater contributor to a positive outcome than teamwork.
Each member of our team will know you and your financial situation, so they can answer questions for you at any time. We will make sure you have a sense of each team member’s role and who best to contact for specific issues ranging from making a deposit to addressing a lifestyle change that will impact your financial plan.
We have modeled our practice on high-net-worth family offices, where we can provide individualized solutions to our distinctive roster of clients. This level of personal attention also applies well to the discriminating institutional clients we serve. Our goal is for you to view The Seiler Group of Raymond James as your personal CFO – and to see that we understand every aspect of your life and can help you make informed and confident financial decisions.
