Edward Jones Overview
Every Edward Jones associate across the U.S. and Canada is focused on one thing – making a significant, positive difference for clients. The firm's 18,800 financial advisors work directly with more than 7 million clients to understand what is important to them – from college savings to retirement – then create personalized investment strategies to help them meet their goals and partner with them for the long-term to help them stay on track.
Each Edward Jones neighborhood branch has a financial advisor and a branch office administrator serving clients where they live and work. They find flexible, family-friendly workplaces near their own homes, satisfying work helping clients achieve their goals, and lots of support by their regions and home-office associates. Community involvement is encouraged, and inclusion initiatives help foster innovative thinking. Headquartered in St. Louis, Edward Jones is owned by its associates and has more than 15,000 branches in all 50 states and Canada.
Additional Culture Details
We are partnership centered. Owners have a different attitude than employees. As a firm owned by associates, we are all in this together. There are no competing interests because everyone puts clients first. Veterans train and mentor less-experienced financial advisors to open new branches nearby. As partners, we know that is good for all of us.
We are family friendly. The flexibility to accommodate family matters is built into our two-person branches. Financial advisors open a convenient branch location and set hours for that branch.
We are caring. We take care of each other in tough times, whether it is a local disaster, a cancer diagnosis or a family crisis. Caring is part of our culture and leaders are authorized to do the right thing to help associates navigate personal difficulties, whether that means extra time off, special pay arrangements, a loan, a $500 gift card, a health-benefits exception or preventative programs to head off a crisis.
