On Thursday, February 22nd local folks celebrated the grand opening of the new Edward Jones branch office here in Deer Park. Financial advisor Ryan Moore said that while our location has changed, he is committed to providing continued face-to-face, personalized service service to all his clients. With greater visibility at the new office Ryan hopes to see many new clients come through the doors.
Edward Jones, headquartered in St. Louis, is one of the nation’s most convenient suppliers of financial services for individual investors. Edward Jones is one of the only firms to serve individual investors exclusively. The firm has more than 7 million clients with more than $1 trillion in assets under care. Growth has transformed Edward Jones from a regional firm with only 304 offices in 1980 to a North American presence of more than 13,000 offices. To support this growth, the firm created a nationally recognized training program for its financial advisors. The firm continues to place these well-trained financial advisors in communities where they can serve the needs of individual investors.
Personal service to the individual is of utmost importance. The branch-office business model allows financial advisors to discuss individual investment needs on a one-on-one basis and partner with clients for the long term to help keep them on track toward their goals. Today, 70% of the branch offices are in metropolitan areas.
The firm’s investment philosophy – investing for the long-term in quality investments aligned with goals and risk tolerance – appeals to serious, long-term individual investors.
Edward Jones is also dedicated to being part of the local community. Financial advisors take the firm’s commitment to their community very seriously. Many, including Ryan, are or have been local Chamber of Commerce presidents and members, board members, event coordinators, and professional and community service organization members. Ryan is an active member of the Deer Park Kiwanis Club and served as President of the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce in 2016. He’s continues to be involved in numerous community activities.
The new Edward Jones branch office is located at 830 South Main, Suite A (just south of Yokes Fresh Market). Stop by and meet Ryan and his Branch Office Administrator Alice Blackwell. They are here to help you feel at home and to develop a complete, tailored strategy to help you achieve your financial goals.
