If you're the type of investor who likes making the decisions on your account, with our Guided Solutions Flex Account you have the final say on all buys and sells. Working within guidelines provided by Edward Jones, you'll have the flexibility to manage your portfolio the way you'd like, with extensive investment choices, sophisticated monitoring that notifies you when your account needs review and the option to rebalance whenever you'd like.
It's important for us to understand your goals, comfort with risk and the length of time you have to reach your goals. We'll meet with you to discuss this and then work with you to select the portfolio objective that's right for your situation. Using your portfolio objective as a framework, you'll then work closely with your financial advisor to build your portfolio to ensure it aligns to those goals and objectives, and Edward Jones' guidance. The final decision on all buys and sells is yours.
You'll have access to a wide range of eligible investment choices as you build your portfolio, including stocks, ETFs and mutual funds. Individual bonds and CDs are also available for accounts with $50,000 or more. The initial investment minimum amount to open an account is just $25,000.
With Guided Solutions, you should expect to adjust your portfolio periodically to adapt to your evolving investment needs and stay aligned with our guidance. But you and your financial advisor won't be the only ones monitoring your portfolio. Advanced technology working behind the scenes will help you stay on track to meet your goals. If your portfolio moves outside of the range set by your goals, you'll receive an alert and then you must work together with your financial advisor to make adjustments.
You'll pay a Program Fee of 1.35% of your account's value or lower, based on your account value. This fee includes your financial advisor's services, trading costs, performance reporting, evaluation and selection of investments for the program by Edward Jones research professionals, and other services to keep your account aligned with our guidance. It does not include the internal expenses of the mutual funds and ETFs you own. Your Program Fee may be lower depending on the value of your assets in the program. Paying an ongoing fee can make expenses more predictable but can be more expensive over time.
Your account is subject to a minimum monthly fee, which could make the Program Fee higher than 1.35%.
