Item 8.01 Other Events

On October 16, 2013, Raymond James Financial, Inc. (the "Company") issued a press release to announce that the fourth quarter fiscal year 2013 earnings report is scheduled to be released after the market closes on Wednesday, October 23. The quarterly conference call will take place the following morning, Thursday, October 24, at 8:15 a.m. ET.

The Company also announced that it implemented changes in its reportable segments effective with its quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. The changes are a result of management's assessment of the usefulness and materiality of certain of its historical reportable segments. The effect of the change is that the Company will now report five segments (a reduction from its prior reporting of eight segments). The Company did not make changes in its four core reportable segments with the exception of minor additions to its Private Client Group and Capital Markets segments.

The result of the changes in reportable segments are as follows:

Historical reportable segments
Reportable segments as of September 30, 2013
Private Client Group
Private Client Group
Securities Lending
Capital Markets
Capital Markets
Emerging Markets
Asset Management
Asset Management
RJ Bank
RJ Bank
Proprietary Capital

These segment changes have no effect on the Company's historical financial results of operations. Prior period results have been conformed to the Company's new reportable segments. Exhibit 99.2 includes unaudited segment revenue, pre-tax income (excluding noncontrolling interests), net interest income and assets for the quarter and fiscal year-end periods of September 30, 2011 and 2012, and quarter and year-to-date periods through June 30, 2013.

The information furnished herein, including Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, are not deemed to be "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liability of that section. This information will not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except to the extent that the registrant specifically incorporates it by reference.
