When you and your financial advisor develop your investment strategy together, you have the expertise of Edward Jones behind you. A significant part of this expertise is the Edward Jones Investment Policy Committee (IPC), who develops the firm’s investment guidance.
This guidance is integrated into the tools, systems and materials that your financial advisor uses to help you move closer toward meeting your financial goals. When you invest with Edward Jones, your financial advisor tailors this overarching investment guidance to your individual goals and personal situation.

The IPC meets regularly to discuss current events, propose new policies and review existing guidance – all with our clients’ long-term needs as the focal point. The IPC members – experts in economics, investments and retirement planning – come from many departments across the firm and each bring a unique perspective.
