RJS is not named for some public figure or local sports legend, but rather a thriving diversified financial services firm headquartered across Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg – Raymond James Financial. The firm’s name comes from the 1962 merger of two financial service companies, one run by Robert A. James and the other by Edward Raymond. Traded on the New York Stock Exchange (RJF), today Raymond James is a multinational company with distinct business units that serve a variety of clients, from individuals and small business owners to municipalities and major corporations. Raymond James has held the naming rights since the stadium opened in 1998 and renewed the agreement in 2016 to continue through 2027. Raymond James is the official investment services and financial planning provider for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. To learn more about the firm or locate a financial advisor, visit raymondjames.com.
