Why Independence Matters

The Power of Independence

The meaning of independence in financial services is often overlooked and not well understood. We believe that it is important for clients to take the time to familiarize themselves on the value of independence when selecting someone to manage their wealth.


Freedom to Act in Clients' Best Interests

At Raymond James Investment Counsel, independence means that the Portfolio Manager you entrust with your wealth is unencumbered by in-house products. This means they have the freedom to choose the most appropriate investment solutions for you, and will always act in your best interest.


Focused on Client Needs, Not Product

Independence also means that the Raymond James management team is focused on ensuring that our Portfolio Managers have the best resources and support to enhance the services offered to their clients instead of focusing on product manufacturing and distribution.
