While the past two years brought upheaval to the financial services industry as firms shifted their focus, their products and even their ownership, Edward Jones did not.
While the nation worked its way through a year of recovery, Edward Jones continued to grow. The firm added 183 financial advisors throughout 2010 to total 11,365 now serving the needs of serious, long-term individual investors throughout North America.
“Edward Jones’ partnership structure results in associates sharing in good times and sacrificing in bad,” said Scott Flake, Edward Jones financial advisor in Payson.. “Associates here understand that our success, as a firm and individuals, is directly related to how effective we are at helping clients solve their financial needs. As a partnership, there is a clear incentive to collaborate and help one another succeed to benefit clients — it’s a motivating environment in which to work.”
In addition to its reputation as a leading employer, Edward Jones also has earned a reputation from its clients for delivering excellent client service.
The firm ranked highest in investor satisfaction in the J.D. Power and Associates Full Service Investor Satisfaction Study in 2010, 2009, 2007, 2006 and 2005. SmartMoney magazine named Edward Jones the No. 1 full-service brokerage firm in its June edition, its fourth ranking among the top two spots since 2005.
“We are honored to have earned these accolades because they reflect the strong personal relationships with clients that are key to our success,” said Flake. “We know our clients by name — not by number — and that relationships help us better tailor clients’ financial solutions.”
“Our view of the business has not changed,” Flake said. “Our clients come first and everything springs from that concept.”
The Edward Jones financial advisors in the Payson area include: Flake, Mike Blaes and Ross Hage.
