In this industry, quality training programs are hard to come by. But Edward Jones, with its close-knit culture, fiercely loyal advisor force and stick-to-your-knitting investment philosophy, seems to have a few tricks that work. With about 12,000 advisors today, the firm plans to grow that to 20,000 by 2020, said Josh Roesslein, senior project coordinator in FA talent acquisition.
