Edward Jones

I'm a novice investor and looking at having Edward Jones do my asset management at a 1.1% fee for $500k in assets. Anything I should be weary or considerate of before doing this?

What is the average number of clients an Edward Jones rep might manage after being in business for 15 years or so? At what point do they get a “Good Night”?

Edward Jones folks: there’s an EJ FA selling his book not far from me. I’d like to buy it. How does your noncompete work, is this a possibility, etc. this may be more than a forum comment can explain.

Is Commonwealth good as advertised?? It just seems to good to be true. ( all the top ratings in JD Power etc) Edward Jones also has excellent J.D. Power scores but we definitely have issues.........

Anyone know what happens when an established Edward Jones rep leaves their local practice to join the mothership in St. Louis? Do they have a big public send off or is it done on the down low?

What is the Edward Jones policy/stance on social media and advertising? Is it really restrictive? Seems like reps want to use it, but are limited on what they can do.

I was shocked yesterday when a man knocked on my door with an Edward Jones name tag on. He was going door to door to try and get clients. Is this really still how some advisors try to get clients?

Just had an appointment with a prospect who is currently with Edward Jones. He told me his advisor told him that he doesn’t pay him any fees. I asked if he thought the advisor worked for free...

Edward Jones is charging me $40 for a good knight account. The client refused to close the account a year ago and it is only worth $60. Is that even legal??? Thoughts

FAS at other firms... how often do you get feedback from a client that says "I can't believe how much paperwork I actually get from you guys." I swear to God in Edward Jones it's about once a day.
