Jay Geddings of the financial services firm Edward Jones knows what it takes to be successful in the financial services industry.

For that reason, he was invited to share his experience and help train financial advisors with less experience at the firm’s headquarters in St. Louis.

As one of two veteran brokers in attendance, Geddings shared his experience as an Edward Jones financial advisor.

“I was honored to be invited to the class. I hope I was able to lend insight into the challenges and rewards of helping Edward Jones clients achieve their financial goals,” Geddings said.

Geddings, who has been a financial advisor for six years, shared anecdotes from his personal business experiences and discussed his approach in working with clients face to face and implementing Edward Jones’ philosophy.

Edward Jones financial advisors go through one of the most rigorous training programs in the industry before even opening an office, but their training does not stop there. Access to veteran brokers is just a phone call away and is part of the firm’s intense commitment to expand each financial advisor’s education.

Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada.
