Merrill Lynch Team Bolts for Raymond James
By Alex Padalka
As Merrill Lynch reports that its advisor ranks dipped slightly in the second quarter 1% from the previous year, the wirehouse lost a team of brokers to Raymond James, according to Raymond James.
The Henderson Hutter Group, founded by Lee Henderson and George Hutter, has joined Raymond James Financial Services, the firm’s independent broker-dealer, in New Orleans, the company says in a press release.
The team also includes financial planners Megan Giardina and Christine Shea, investment associate Patrick Kungl and business operations coordinator Alli Eis, Raymond James says.
