At Raymond James, we believe advisors should have the freedom and flexibility to run their businesses on their own terms, along with the resources and support they need to succeed. That’s the people-first approach upon which our firm was founded, and one that’s distinguished us through the years. Experience it for yourself with a virtual or in-person Home Office Visit (HOV).
What to expect from your Home Office Visit (HOV)
When you step foot inside the Raymond James international headquarters, you’ll see what we mean when we say we put clients first. And you’ll see how we do it: by offering superlative support to each of our advisors.
We’ll start your in-person HOV by arranging your travel accommodations to St. Petersburg, Florida, for an immersive, behind-the-scenes tour of our firm – all guided by an agenda tailored to your specific interests and business needs.
Once here, you’ll meet with firmwide specialists and executive leaders ready to help you create – and grow – the practice you envision. You’ll also explore different departments and discover how we can help you address the most complex of client needs. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about a thing – we’ll fly you out, take care of your lodging and do it all confidentially.Let’s save the date
Our virtual HOVs offer the same personalized and enriching experience as our in-person HOVs – all from the comfort of your office or home. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to customize your agenda even more, allowing your HOV to span half days, multiple days or a full day.Secure your spot
