Edward Jones received the highest numerical score among full service brokerage firms in the proprietary J.D. Power and Associates 2012 Full Service Investor Satisfaction Study SM. Study based on responses from 4,401 investors who used full-service investment institutions. Fourteen investment firms that received a representative sample of investor opinions were measured on seven factors: investment advisor; investment performance; account information; account offerings; commissions and fees; website; and problem resolution. Proprietary study results are based on experiences and perceptions of consumers surveyed in February 2012. Your experiences may vary. Rating may not be indicative of future performance and may not be representative of any one client’s experience because it reflects an average of experiences of responding clients.
