Preserving My Wealth

You’ve worked hard to successfully grow your wealth and you want to preserve it – to feel secure about the future. Your Raymond James advisor has the expertise and resources to help you transition to a more conservative investment approach, one that helps you meet your income and liquidity needs while thoughtfully pursuing growth. An effective wealth management strategy also considers the role insurance and estate planning can play in mitigating risk, and plans for any scenario that might cause you to worry. Together, you and your advisor will plan for all of life’s events – the expected and the unexpected.


Your Portfolio

Guided by the firm’s commitment to conservatism, Raymond James advisors understand the importance of avoiding unnecessary risk with your investment portfolio. Your advisor has access to quality resources should it be appropriate to take a more risk-averse approach, one focused on providing income as well as growing wealth.

Testing for ‘What ifs’

As you transition from regular paychecks to relying on your accumulated wealth, any number of “what-if” scenarios have the potential to keep you up at night. There’s the specter of underperforming markets, higher-than-expected inflation, lower-than-expected interest rates, the outlook for Social Security, the increasing cost of healthcare – even the possibility you could outlive your resources. Your Raymond James advisor has access to tools that take into account a number of potentially adverse factors to “stress test” for different scenarios, so you can have a plan to address them with confidence.


Account Protection

At Raymond James, we take the security of your accounts and information seriously. We go above and beyond industry standards in combining state-of-the-art cyber security technology, rigorous internal practices and protocols, and reliable resources, account protection and security.

Raymond James & Associates is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), which protects securities customers of its members up to $500,000 (including $250,000 for claims for cash). An explanatory brochure is available upon request or at sipc.org or by calling (202) 371-8300. Raymond James has purchased excess-SIPC coverage through various syndicates of Lloyd's, a London-based firm. Excess SIPC is fully protected by the Lloyd's trust funds and Lloyd's Central Fund. The additional protection currently provided has an aggregate firm limit of $750 million, including a sub-limit of $1.9 million per customer for cash above basic SIPC for the wrongful abstraction of customer funds. Account protection applies when a SIPC-member firm fails financially and is unable to meet obligations to securities clients, but it does not protect against market fluctuations.

Does inflation threaten this bull market?

No, says CIO Larry Adam – if the move is gradual. “When core inflation has been between 1% and 4%, the S&P 500 has actually been able to notch above-average performance.”
