Edward Jones Makes a Difference in Clients’ Lives
The opportunities available in the market today are as plentiful as ever, but so is the need for individual investors to work with a qualified financial-services professional, according to Edward Jones Financial Advsors.
“At Edward Jones, we take time to understand our clients’ unique financial needs and risk tolerance levels so that we can implement solutions that will put them on track to achieve their long-term financial goals,” say local advisors. “With a well-balanced, diversified portfolio of quality investments, even with short-term fluctuations in the market, investors can make progress toward their goals. Our job is to help individual investors take advantage of potential opportunities and keep them focused on a long-term view.”
Serving individual investors through a one-financial-advisor branch office network enables Edward Jones to deliver personal service in convenient office locations.
“The Edward Jones business model allows us to get to know our clients, educate them about appropriate investments and then make recommendations based on their individual needs,” local advisors say. “Clients appreciate this level of personal service and, having an office in the community in which they live, makes it convenient to do business with us.”
“Our view of the business has not changed,” advisors say. “Our clients come first and everything springs from that concept.”
