“The Edward Jones Difference

Edward Jones is a decidedly different kind of investment firm. Our mission is to help individuals reach their serious, long-term financial goals.

At Edward Jones, we believe the relationship between you and your financial advisor is one of the most important aspects of successful investing.

That’s why we have more than 11,000 financial advisors located in more than 10,000 offices around the country. Most offices have only one financial advisor and one branch office administrator who are dedicated to helping the individual investors in their community reach their financial goals.

Founded in 1922, we are a full-service brokerage firm and a private partnership – a structure that we believe gives us the independence to make long-term decisions that are in the best interests of our clients and associates, without the pressures publicly traded companies face to meet short-term earnings forecasts.

Our thoughtful investment strategy includes identifying your specific, long-term goals, developing and implementing a tailored strategy and maintaining a diversified portfolio of quality investments. And our community-based, neighborhood locations in both large cities and smaller towns make us accessible and approachable in how we interact with our clients to develop these strategies.

Set up a face-to-face meeting with an Edward Jones financial advisor in your community to learn more about what makes investing with Edward Jones different.”
