Raymond James hired three veteran wirehouse advisors with $487 million in combined assets to its employee channel in another victory for its expansion in the Northeast.
The advisors joined the firm in March from Merrill Lynch and UBS in three states: Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
They also join a slew of recruits at Raymond James, which increased its headcount by 3% year-over-year to reach 7,862 independent and employee advisors, according to its most recent earnings report.

The New Haven, Connecticut-based advisor joined Raymond James from Merrill Lynch, where he was responsible for $160 million in client assets, according to his new employer.
