Rollins recognized for exceptional achievement with Edward Jones in Hannibal
HANNIBAL, Mo. — Alicia Rollins, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Hannibal, recently received the firm’s Ted Jones Entrepreneurial Award for her exceptional achievement in building client relationships. She was one of 1,442 financial advisors firmwide to receive the award.
The award is named after Ted Jones, the son of the firm’s founder. He became the firm’s 18th financial advisor in 1948 and served as managing partner from 1960 to 1980. Ted Jones saw the opportunity to serve individual investors in communities across the country and designed the one-financial advisor branch business model. He valued the concept of partnership so much so that he provided ownership opportunities for associates to share in the firm’s success, a practice still alive today.
In a press release, Rollins said, “It’s truly an honor to be recognized for the work that I do with clients, work that inspires me because it makes a difference in their lives. And it’s a special honor to receive an award named after a firm legend such as Ted Jones, who set the standard for respect as a firm value, a value that continues to guide our work today.”
The Edward Jones branch-office business model, with more than 15,000 branches throughout North America, allows the firm’s nearly 19,000 financial advisors to identify what matters most to each individual client and create personalized strategies, with the goal of developing long-lasting relationships to help keep them on track toward their goals.
Edward Jones is a financial services firm in the U.S. and through its affiliate in Canada. The firm’s nearly 19,000 financial advisors serve more than 8 million clients with a total of $1.7 trillion in client assets under care at the end of March 2023.
