About The Jones Financial Company


Edward D. Jones Sr. founded his eponymous company in 1922. Originally called Edward D. Jones & Co., the firm’s objective was to offer high quality investments out of its meager, single room office. In 1968, Edward Jones Sr.’s son, Ted Jones, became the company’s second managing partner. By 1980, Edward D. Jones & Co. had expanded to 300 offices in the U.S. Since the 1990s, Edward Jones has expanded into Canada and opened its 10,000th office. Its main corporate headquarters is located in Des Peres, Missouri. 

Edward Jones offers a variety of investment services such as retirement funds, mutual funds, bonds, 529 plans, and cash and credit accounts. The company has many office locations with open opportunities for those looking to start a career, or continue an existing career path. Opportunities include financial advisory, analytics, human resources, software development, and more. Many openings offer the option for remote work, and the Edward Jones website features a questionnaire to help prospective employees determine how they might apply their knowledge and skills in an appropriate role at the company. 

Edward Jones is committed to the preservation of nature, and in the late 1980s, Ted Jones and his wife began the process of turning a 240-mile stretch of abandoned railroad into what is now known as Katy Trail State Park. The trail had its 30th anniversary in 2020 and remains the longest recreation rail-trail in the U.S. Each year, The Katy Trail attracts over 400,00 hikers, cyclists, equestrians, and history buffs.
