Raymond James opens Truro branch


Raymond James Investment Services has opened a new branch in Cornwall.

The new branch, which goes by the name ‘Raymond James, Truro’, offers bespoke localised investment services throughout the region, expanding Raymond James’ presence in the south west. It is being headed up by branch principal Simon Burnett

Burnett began his career in the City of London in 1999, working on the equities trading floor at Goldman Sachs. He went on to work on the open outcry trading floor in Amsterdam before returning to London as a senior equity dealer at State Street Global Advisers. In his final few years in the City, Simon worked as a director at the international equities broker ITG before transferring his expertise to the private client arena, joining Charles Stanley and then latterly Walker Crips Investment Management.

Anthony Scott, head of business development at Raymond James, said: “Truro is an important business hub for the South-West and this new branch will be a valuable addition to our footprint in the region. Simon has a wealth of expertise that he has built over a long and varied career, and we look forward to helping him achieve his strategic aims over the coming years.”
