In an age of voice mail and e-mail, mobile phones and computerized banking, things change so fast that tradition is being lost in the jet wash of a jet set society. However, traditional values literally define Edward Jones, a nontraditional company that embraces new technology while still making house calls.
This full-services brokerage firm has one priority that has never changed since the firm began nearly 90 years ago: service to individual investors when and where it is convenient for them. To accomplish this, Edward Jones has focused on building a network of onebroker branches that are conveniently located for individuals. It doesn’t matter whether those individuals live — in the rural heartland or in the suburb of a sprawling metropolis — Edward Jones is there.
That’s why Eric Holder, an Edward Jones financial advisor in North Miami, maintains an office on 163rd Street/ Sunny Isles Blvd in town.
That’s also why Holder will stress longterm and diversified investments. “I meet with clients face to face and emphasize the importance of choosing quality investments that have the potential to perform well over time. At Edward Jones, we prefer a longterm approach to investing,” he said.
“The decisions clients make when they meet with us will affect their financial futures. They are big decisions that deserve undivided, personal attention,” he added. Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada. Every aspect of the firm’s business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which they live and work.
Edward Jones embraces the importance of building long-term, faceto- face relationships with clients, helping them to understand and make sense of the investment options available today. Edward Jones is headquartered in St. Louis. The Edward Jones website is located at edwardjones.com, and its recruiting website is www.careers.edwardjones.com. Member SIPC.
