Pride Financial Advisors Network
Together we thrive
The Pride Financial Advisors Network welcomes advisors, clients, prospects and allies who are passionate about championing the LGBTQ+ community. Whether you identify within or simply serve the LGBTQ+ community, the network invites you to thrive as your most authentic self.
The idea for the Pride Financial Advisors Network was first sparked when an experienced advisor, Thomas Hake, joined Raymond James and began seeking ways to align with other LGBTQ+ advisors to help meet the financial planning needs of the LGBTQ+ community. He worked to develop and share his ideas with other professionals in addition to running his practice. Tom met with the firm’s executive leadership team and solidified plans for a kickoff. The result was the Pride Financial Advisors Network – an initiative that promotes equality, encourages advisors to be their authentic selves and fosters a more inclusive firm for all. The network made its official debut in June 2020.
