Our Business Is People
It’s easy to remember what counts most in hard times when it’s what counts most in good ones too. Through upticks, downturns, burst bubbles and historic bull markets, we’ve never lost sight of the fact that there’s a person behind every portfolio. Since 1962, people have been the heart of Raymond James. And in times like these, we return that strength.
We Have a Straightforward Approach
To Doing Business
At Raymond James, we believe that putting clients’ needs first is the best way to ensure their success and, in turn, the long-term success of our advisors and the company. We call this our Service 1st® philosophy. With our strong focus on clients and our commitment to supporting those who serve them, we’ve become known as the premier alternative to Wall Street, providing the products, services and support of even the largest firms, within an environment that values strong, personal relationships.
Raymond James has steadily grown to become one of the largest independent financial services firms in the industry, but our core values ensure we’ll never be so big that we don’t have time for what matters most. These principles include:
Raymond James focuses on doing what's right for its clients, associates and communities. And as you'll find in the firm's Corporate Responsibility Report, this commitment drives our mission to build a more sustainable future for all through environmental, social and governance best practices.
Markets Change, Our Values Will Always Be the Same
Client first is at our core, supported by conservatism, independence and integrity.
