Whole Loan Trading
Steadfast service. Extensive expertise.
Founded in 1991, the Raymond James Whole Loan Trading Desk is proud to serve as your devoted loan portfolio management partner.
Bob James, the founder of Raymond James, once said, “We are in the people business, inside as well as out.” That’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly. We consider ourselves more than just a broker, instead applying a holistic approach and skillful problem solving to best support your loan portfolio analytics, research, trading and liquidity needs.
One of our team’s highest priorities is embodying the client first service for which Raymond James is known. We understand that having an experienced team is essential in helping ensure your success, and we work to provide sophisticated portfolio analytics while identifying the risks and rewards associated with your loan portfolio. Dedicated to comprehensive and personalized service, our team draws on our ample knowledge and robust resources to guide you in all stages of a transaction – from determining potential strategies and leading pricing discussions to helping with the underwriting of loans and working with your legal counsel to negotiate contracts and establish collateral.
For 2019, the Raymond James Trading Desk analyzed nearly $350bn in loans for over 1,000 unique portfolios. We facilitated nearly 250 trades, averaging over 20 trades per month.
