We will share your personal information with third parties. There are times when we are mandated by law to disclose your personal information to third parties (such as the Regulator).

We may monitor where permitted by law and we will do this where the law requires it. In particular, where we are required by the Financial Conduct Authority’s regulatory regime to record certain telephone lines or in person meetings (as relevant) we will do so. However, it is standard practice at Raymond James, that we will record all external calls for training, compliance, security and evidentiary purposes even where these calls fall outside of our regulatory obligations. This practice is noted within and is part of our Terms of Business.
We keep this policy under regular review and we will place any updates on this website.
