Edward Jones repeats at top of magazine poll

For the 13th consecutive year, Edward Jones ranked first in Registered Representative magazine’s annual survey of the nation’s seven largest financial-services firms. The magazine randomly selects brokers nationwide and asks them to rank their firms in various categories.

“Jones is famous for its one-person branches in cities and towns across the country,” the magazine said in its December 2005 issue.

“We are pleased and honored by this recognition,” said Douglas E. Hill, Edward Jones’ managing partner. “What makes it especially gratifying to have received this honor for 13 consecutive years is the fact that it is conferred upon us by our own investment representatives, the people who meet face-to-face with clients every day.”
