Christian Clients Commented on: 1 year ago (June 13, 2013)

No it's definitely not just you. I've had very similar situations - many of them. There seems to be an underlying lack of trust (and real, palpable fear bordering on paranoia) from many of my...

These Forums need Mods and Admins. Commented on: 1 year ago (May 5, 2013)

Completely agree! I check in here now maybe once per quarter because of it. I suspect that's why it's been largely abandoned.

Anybody know some better, active FA forums?

EDWARD JONES---READ your Employment Agreement---Handcuffs and More Commented on: 1 year ago (January 18, 2013)

The bottom line is, if Jones thought they were competitive enough to keep client loyalty, they would not need to keep the advisor away for 5 YEARS. The fact that they have no issue taking...

Edward Jones 75k training Commented on: 2 years ago (March 3, 2012)

Switching firms with no contact agreements Commented on: 2 years ago (January 24, 2012)

I disagree, Element. There are FINRA cases like this all the time, and many don't go in the departing advisor's favor. I was at EdJones, and believe me, they don't follow the Protocol.Three days...

"I'm at a new firm now...." Commented on: 2 years ago (December 22, 2011)

It's pretty standard. "In order to serve my clients better..."Just ask. Some will come with. Some won't. It was actually a surprise to me which clients were really loyal - they weren't always the...
