Edward Jones Maintains Traditional Values
In an age of voice mail and email, 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 more than 95 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 one-broker 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.
In fact, Edward Jones has more branch-office locations than
any other brokerage in North America. Its branch-office concept was conceived
by Edward D. "Ted" Jones Jr., son of the firm's founder.
Despite its rapid growth from 304 branch offices in 1980 to
more than 13,800 throughout the United States and Canada today, Edward Jones
remains committed to its traditional values.
That's also why Kimberley will stress long-term 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 long-term approach to
investing," she said.
"The decisions clients make when they meet with me will
affect their financial futures. They are big decisions that deserve undivided,
personal attention," she added.
