When Bob James established Raymond James in 1962, he pioneered incorporating financial planning as an integral component of personal investing. He understood, too, that insurance plays a crucial role in a complete financial planning process, and should be part of every client's plan. As a consequence, Raymond James Insurance Group was founded in 1968, making it the firm's oldest subsidiary.
Today, Raymond James Insurance Group not only provides insurance and annuity products, it focuses on helping advisors deliver insurance solutions that address their clients' specific challenges.
Raymond James Insurance Group takes pride in offering access to a wide array of financially solid insurance companies, enabling your Raymond James financial advisor to help you select the annuity, life, long-term care and disability policies that meet your needs.
Our longstanding business relationships with many insurance carriers facilitate open communication about new products, opportunities, challenges and trends. Before agreeing to work with a carrier or offering a product to clients, we carefully examine financials, investment strategies, industry ratings, and operational, technical and support capabilities.
Then we go a step farther: We monitor carriers, as well as any potential legislative developments, on an ongoing basis - part of our continuing effort to identify potential issues before they emerge.
Raymond James Insurance Group works with your advisor to help you select the most suitable strategies and products for your needs. We provide:
- Consultative services,
- Product comparisons,
- Technical support,
- Advanced estate and business planning, and
- Comprehensive training.
