RayJay Adds Former Vegas RBC FA Team


Raymond James has recruited the Hamilton-Withrow Group, a team of financial advisors from RBC Wealth Management.  The team, now part of Raymond James' employee advisor channel, Raymond James & Associates, is based in Las Vegas. The advisors, Mark Ben Hamilton, Kerry Withrow, Ryan D'Souza, and Elliot Bloch, managed $729 million in assets at RBC. 

At RBC, they specialized in employee stock ownership plans. Hamilton, with 48 years in the industry, started his career in 1978 at Legel, Braswell Securities and had worked at Dean Witter Reynolds, Prudential Securities, PaineWebber, and other firms before joining RBC in 1998. Withrow, with 30 years of experience, first registered in 1994 at Smith Barney and had worked at Sutro & Co., RBC Dain Rauscher, and Wedbush Morgan Securities before joining RBC in 2005. D'Souza, with seven years of experience, joined RBC in 2018 after working at Ameriprise Financial Services. Bloch had two brief stints at RBC and also worked at UBS and other firms. The Hamilton-Withrow Group is at least the second team Raymond James has added from RBC in recent weeks.
