The Financial Advisor Opportunity: About the Role

The financial advisor opportunity is a role unlike any other. Their daily work goes beyond aligning people with financial solutions. They help people work toward a comfortable retirement, purchase a first home or send a child to college. Our financial advisors also play pivotal roles within their communities, volunteering for local causes and bringing people together. Learn more about this unique opportunity.

About the role

Edward Jones financial advisors help people plan for life’s big moments. By taking time to understand clients’ unique needs, they’re able to present personalized investment solutions that are designed to help meet lifetime goals.

Best of all, it doesn’t take an expert. Thanks to our top-tier training program, our financial advisors have come from a wide variety of professional fields and built successful branches with us. Simply bring your ambition and drive and we’ll show you what it takes to succeed. One of our financial advisors, Courtney, agrees.

“As financial advisors, it’s not our job to know all the ins and outs of different companies,” she says. “You don’t have to be a financial wizard. It’s about getting to know your clients and being able to work with them toward what they’re trying to accomplish.”

All the while, Edward Jones financial advisors are building businesses in their local communities. Our financial advisors set their own hours, make their own schedule and pick their own clients. It’s truly an opportunity that rewards entrepreneurship and independence.

About the reward

Our financial advisors enjoy our “no ceiling” approach to business. We believe you should get what you give, so our associates’ compensation is always tied to their branch’s success. We also take pride in offering a comprehensive benefits package that includes opportunities for bonuses, commissions, profit sharing and more.

But the financial advisor role goes beyond financial reward. Our associates are active members in our clients’ lives, working with them to find the solutions they need. They take pride in driving people to achieve significant life goals. One of our financial advisors, Mason, discusses how he views his role in his clients’ lives.

“I really identify as an educator. Making sure people understand what the process is and why they own what they own,” he says. “What it means to take a risk in the market or not take a risk in the market. And my biggest joy comes from helping them reach their goals.”
