Financial Solutions Leadership
Joe Gravino, CFP®

My career in the financial services industry began in 1994 in Kansas City. In 2000, I became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, a certificate that maintains rigorous standards for experience and ethical practices. I’m proud to be a trusted fiduciary, acting solely in the interest of my clients.

Gaining my bachelor's degree in finance and economics from Rockhurst University, I have taught personal financial planning for the University's Master of Business Administration program.


In addition to being named a member of the Raymond James Executive Council in 2012-2022*, I am also a member of the Raymond James Institute of Investment Management Consulting**, a group selected based on their demonstrated commitment to pursuing a consulting approach in managing and growing their practices. 

Outside of the office, I can often be found on the golf course with clients and colleagues or enjoying the beach. In 2021, I achieved my scuba certification and enjoy diving when possible. I also collect small batch bourbons and still enjoy hunting for hard-to-find bottles.

Clients know me to be a highly-energetic individual with a keen sense of humor. I’m said to possess valuable connections in the Kansas City area and look forward to the opportunity to work with you.


*Membership is based on prior fiscal year production, re- qualification is required annually.

** The Investment Management Consultant designation is awarded to those who complete the internal Raymond James Institute of Investment Management Consulting program.
