Raymond James has announced a new addition to its Canadian operations.

Scott Hudson has joined the firm in Toronto as national director of Wealth Management, with more than 25 years of industry experience. He has taken on increasingly senior roles during his career and was most recently with Scotia Wealth Management and served as business development director for ScotiaMcLeod.

He is recognized for helping high-performance advisors and portfolio managers to enhance their client relationships and build business opportunities.

"We are thrilled to add someone of Scott's calibre to our Wealth Management team," said Jamie Coulter, executive vice president of the firm's Wealth Management Group. "Scott will be a key catalyst as we continue to build Raymond James as the firm of choice for advisors and portfolio managers, seeking the freedom to deliver world class wealth management solutions to Canadians."

Importance of a trusted adviser
Hudson will serve on the Raymond James Wealth Management Operating Committee and says he is looking forward to working with the firm’s team of professionals.

"Raymond James has created a firm that embraces a culture where advisors and portfolio managers truly are able to do what is right for their clients, with no push to sell proprietary products," he said. "This focus is critical to me as, more than ever, investors and their families need a trusted advisor who will put clients' needs first, always. The Raymond James values-based culture helps make this happen."
