At Edward Jones, we help clients achieve their serious, long-term financial goals by understanding their needs and implementing tailored solutions. To ensure a personal client experience, we have located our 15,000+ branch offices where our more than 7 million clients live and work.

In a typical branch office, a financial advisor meets with clients and receives branch office support, so they can focus on building deep relationships with clients.

Compliance Officers have relative autonomy to resolve routine to semi-complex issues which require interpretation of policies, procedures, or regulations.  Associates utilize seasoned judgment to identify and understand when an issue needs to be escalated for further review or action to branch teams or clients.
