4/6/2013 9:59:00 PM Briefly Edward Jones adding 4 offices
The national financial services company Edward Jones is expanding in Prescott and Prescott Valley by adding four branches, bringing the total to 10, a company official said.
Edward Jones is growing to serve a clientele base that includes retirees and people saving money for retirement, said Ross Hage, regional leader for the St. Louis-based company. He added Edward Jones is growing "organically" by "going out there by trying to find the best people."
Hage, who is based in Payson and oversees a region stretching from Anthem north to Page and Wickenburg on the west to Show Low to the east, said Edward Jones has hired four financial advisers for Prescott and Prescott Valley. Each adviser will have a branch office administrator.
The new hires are undergoing a four-month training program and will need to pass a national Series 7 exam before they become licensed to sell securities, Hage said.
"They may not open offices immediately," Hage said. "They have targeted locations."
