Who’s New in the Neighborhood?

Pollina, JennÑ03/12/13Ñ432222

Jenn Pollina knows the value of a comfortable pair of shoes. That’s because she has been introducing herself to the residents in North Andover.

Pollina is a financial advisor for the financial services firm Edward Jones, and her neighborhood visits demonstrate the Edward Jones way of doing business — face to face.

“That’s one of the things that drew me to this firm,” Pollina said. “Edward Jones values the individual investor and understands that people still want to do business with someone they know and trust.”

Pollina also had to complete one of the most rigorous training programs in the financial services industry.

And although she 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.

Pollina has 16 years of experience in the financial services industry.

Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada. Every aspect of the firm’s business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which they live and work. The firm’s 12,000-plus financial advisors work directly with nearly 7 million clients to understand their personal goals — from college savings to retirement — and create long-term investment solutions that emphasize a well-balanced portfolio and a buy-and-hold strategy. Edward Jones embraces the importance of building long-term, face-to-face relationships with clients, helping them to understand and make sense of the investment options available today.
