Raymond James has named Kevin Ruth senior vice president of Private Wealth. In this role, Ruth will lead the firm’s work on wealth management strategies for advisors serving high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth clients.
With over 25 years in the industry, Ruth recently developed the application Give-Get that provides financial education to high school students. Earlier, the CFP served as head of wealth planning and personal trust at Fidelity Investments (2013-2019) and also led the development and implementation of private wealth programs at Merrill Lynch and UBS.
“Kevin’s combination of significant expertise and service-oriented approach will be a great addition to Raymond James,” according to Private Client Group President Scott Curtis. “Under his leadership, we will continue enhancing our private wealth capabilities to address the evolving needs and expectations of advisors’ more sophisticated client relationships.”
