Otterson Allison Wealth Management Group of Raymond James

Our mission is to meet the financial needs of each individual client while balancing the complex forces at work in the market and adapting intelligently as conditions change. We know that everyone’s financial situation is unique and as a result, we strive to thoroughly understand the concerns of our clients.

At Otterson Allison Wealth Management Group of Raymond James, we focus on addressing the different worries that keep our clients up at night and more importantly, doing all we can to help them achieve their financial goals.

Our portfolio management is done internally and not outsourced to a third party. Our actively managed accounts are individually built and monitored to meet our client’s risk tolerance and financial goals. This internal management provides us the ability to manage risk more effectively. On a comparative basis, costs associated with our platform of custom managed accounts are very competitive with other platforms.

We offer several levels of services for financial, retirement and legacy planning depending on the complexity of the situation. We engage exceptional tools that enable us to quickly identify and enter client goals and then assess appropriate asset allocation targets, spending or savings rates, and the probability of achieving those goals.
