Raymond James this week said it has managed to bring financial advisor James “Frank” Cape of Green Bay, Wis. into the fold.

“I am honored to be able to welcome an advisor with Frank’s experience and proven success to Raymond James,” Scott Curtis, president of the firm’s independent broker-dealer Raymond James Financial Services, said in a statement. “Our ability to continue to attract highly competent advisors like Frank is a testament to our independent culture and outstanding level of advisor support.”

Cape joined Raymond James from Stifel, Nicolaus and Co. where he managed ore than $105 million in assets and had $712,000 in annual production.

“I joined Raymond James because I wanted the independence to own and run my own firm, but keep the major wirehouse level of back-office support,” Cape said. “I felt Raymond James was the best fit for me and my clients.”

He is joined by sales assistant Amy Luckeroth, who has worked alongside Cape for 15 years. Company officials said Cape, who is a certified financial planner and accredited estate planner, has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry.
