(Watseka, IL) -Raymond James is celebrating its 50th anniversary throughout 2012. On August 16, 1962, the firm was founded as a different kind of financial services partner. While other organizations were simply selling stocks or mutual funds, our financial advisors were revolutionizing financial planning for the individual.

Since its modest beginnings, the firm has grown into one of the largest financial services firms in the United States, with 2,400 locations worldwide and its stock traded on the New York Stock Exchange (RJF). Raymond James is a respected, multinational company with distinct business units serving a variety of clients, from individuals and small business owners to municipalities, institutional investors and major corporations. In October 2011, the firm marked its 95th consecutive quarter of profitability and its 27th year of issuing a dividend to shareholders, a remarkable accomplishment for any company.

The 50th anniversary is an opportunity to reflect on the past, but also to celebrate the things that have not changed throughout the years – a spirit of integrity and independence, of entrepreneurialism and empowerment, of collaboration and respect, and a long-standing commitment of putting the client first.

Associates, advisors, clients and personnel from across the firm will help celebrate the 50th anniversary at events across America, Canada and around the world.
