Who's New in the Neighborhood?
Dodd is a financial advisor for the financial services firm Edward Jones, and his neighborhood visits demonstrate the Edward Jones way of doing business - face to face.
"At Edward Jones, we don't expect anyone to invest with us until they know our investment philosophy," Dodd said. "I believe I have a responsibility to understand the unique financial needs of each and every client, and that's why I'm paying them personal visits."
Before a new Edward Jones financial advisor even can open an office, he or she must spend several months introducing him- or herself to the residents and businesspeople in the community.
"That's one of the things that drew me to this firm," Dodd said. "Edward Jones values the individual investor and understands that people still want to do business with someone they know and trust."
Dodd also had to complete one of the most rigorous training programs in the financial services industry.
And although he is well-versed in the technical aspects of investments, the training isn't over. Edward Jones places a lot of emphasis on continuing education, and its financial advisors train literally throughout their careers.
"I know my clients want a financial advisor who is up to speed on investments and someone they know. That's why we do things the way we do at Edward Jones," Dodd said.
Dodd has joined the office of Drew Heckert located at 431 E Fourth St, Mt. Vernon, IN. He may be reached at 812-838-0555.
