Financial Services


Edward Jones, headquartered in St. Louis, provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada. Every aspect of the firm's business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which they live and work. The firm's 16,000 financial advisors work directly with more than 7 million clients to understand their personal goals – from college savings to retirement – and create long-term investment solutions that emphasize a well-balanced portfolio and a buy-and-hold strategy. Edward Jones embraces the importance of building long-term, face-to-face relationships with clients, helping them to understand and make sense of the investment options available today. The firm business model is one financial advisor and one branch office administrators operating branches in approximately 13,500 locations in all 50 states, 454 of them in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Between the branch locations and the home office campuses, there are 6,235 associates in St. Louis.


Edward Jones offers a full slate of benefits: free wellness care plus premium discounts if you take health screenings, get good results or document healthy activities; vision and dental plans; adoption assistance up to $5,000 per child; domestic partner benefits; $5,000 in annual tuition reimbursement; annual profit sharing; and 401(k) and Roth accounts with firm matching. We self-fund medical care so we can override provider decisions, order coverage or pay for expensive treatments. We offer paid parental leave for full-timers: 16 weeks for primary caregivers, two for secondary. Branch associates enjoy flexibility, including compressed workweek options, telecommuting, job sharing, voluntary unpaid leave and sick leave to care for ill family members. In 2017, associates were eligible for top-level trimester bonuses due to solid firm performance. All associates are eligible to become limited partners and share in firm profits. Nearly 40 percent of all associates are now limited partners.
