Five former Merrill Lynch advisors who collectively managed $515 million have joined Raymond James & Associates’ employee advisor channel in Burlington and Boston, Mass., according to a company release.
The advisors – Eric Hobin, Jiles Robinson, Antonio Sordillo, Jason Whittier and Kristen Ragusin – continue RJA’s expansion in the Northeast and will become part of RJA’s Southern New England Complex led by Bill Drew, the release said.
Ragusin, who previously managed $140 million in client assets, has launched her own practice at RJA’s Boston, Mass., office. She has been with Merrill Lynch since 1992. Ragusin said she is professionally supported by a firm that truly makes her feel like she is swimming with the tide instead of against it.
