“As Raymond James continues to expand our presence in the North and Northwest, I could not be more pleased to welcome these two great teams of advisors and their exceptional staff,” said Todd Lovell, Boise, Idaho complex manager for RJA, in a statement.
“Our firm’s reputation for putting clients’ interests first and focusing on the needs of our advisors—whether that is from a technology standpoint, a product perspective, or just allowing them the control to run their practices and serve their clients as they choose—allows us as managers to continue to attract the very best in the business.”
