Prior to moving his practice to Edward Jones, Joshua was with one of the big Canadian banks. While researching the firm, many Edward Jones’ associates and financial advisors he spoke to shared the same message: building your financial services practice at Edward Jones is made easier with the support and partnership of fellow financial advisors and subject matter experts from the head office. Looking back, the only thing he would have done differently is join the firm sooner.
“When I worked for one of the big banks eleven years ago and I first met a successful financial advisor from Edward Jones, I was intrigued by what he had to say about the Edward Jones model. I had heard before how much support was available to financial advisors who join Edward Jones, and, wouldn’t you know, I heard the same message eight years later.
“I finally made the decision to venture down that path to learn if I could be an Edward Jones financial advisor. From the regional leaders I spoke to, the financial advisors I met, my recruiter, etc., the same message was being delivered, which was the idea that I could build my business with a proven business model, with all the support I would ever need throughout my entire career.
“Looking back, I wish I took the opportunity sooner. Edward Jones has been everything I was told it would be and more.
“Everything from the interview process to the onboarding to the training and up until this day have been the most rewarding journey and the best decision of my life. This is a firm that wants you to be successful and will support you in attaining that success. The rest is up to you!”
