Steelman works closely with affluent families and individuals to develop, implement and manage a financial plan that is well thought out and designed to address all aspects of their financial lives.

His comprehensive approach goes beyond just investment management to include essential financial matters such as estate planning, cash management, insurance, legacy planning and philanthropy.

Steelman takes a sincere interest in his clients and takes the time to really get to know them. “I feel that over time, they come to realize that I know them as people and friends, not just clients,” says Steelman. “I care about their well-being, both financially and personally.”

He wants his clients to have complete confidence in the strategy he puts together for them and know that he has their best interest at heart. “It is very important that we form a strong bond based on trust and respect,” he says.

He joined Raymond James in April 2022. “I wanted a strong partner with an excellent reputation when it came to ethics and execution,” Steelman says. “Raymond James stood out because it was very clear that it would never put me in a position to compromise the relationship I had with my clients.”
