Tammy Joyce, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Mount Airy, recently attended the Edward Jones second-annual Women’s Conference in St. Louis.
The conference, held to recognize successful female Edward Jones financial advisors, provided attendees with the opportunity to network, hear from internationally recognized speakers, participate in elective sessions that explore performance excellence best practices and interact with firm leadership.
“We are thrilled to be bringing together our most successful women financial advisors to recognize their contributions and facilitate mentorship,” said Alan Kindsvater of Edward Jones Branch Training. “The success of women financial advisors is a firm priority because it will enable us to serve more diverse clients and have greater choices for future leaders.”
Today, about 19 percent of Edward Jones’ financial advisors are women, compared to the industry average of less than 16 percent, according to global research firm Cerulli Associates. Edward Jones strives to have at least 25 percent women in its financial advisor population..
