I very much enjoy the collaborative conversation for retirement planning with clients and prospective clients. It makes me feel good when we have helped someone accomplish a goal or we have shared information in a way to help them understand where they are on their path to preparing for or living in retirement or achieve any other financial goal they may have.

Prior to Edward Jones, I worked for the largest information technology staffing firm in North America. I interacted with many talented information technology professionals and managers of Fortune 500 companies from the St Louis metro area.

I have a bachelor's degree in mass communications from SIU-Edwardsville. I worked at the university's radio station in the news department. I was able to cover the St Louis Cardinals as a beat reporter and did SIU-E men's basketball play by play.

We are proud sponsors of Alton High School's Remarkable Redbird Award. I am an active member of the Alton-Godfrey Rotary Club and currently serve on the board of directors. Our branch is also a proud supporter of the Walk to End Alzheimer's. Additionally, I was a basketball coach for 24 years at the grade school I attended. What I look back on from that experience most are the memories created and relationships built with the players and families of players.

I have a wonderful wife and two young daughters. I am a big fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues and also NCAA and high school basketball.

With over 18,000 financial advisors serving more than 7 million investors, Edward Jones has been built on the belief that the only way to do business is on a one-on-one, personal basis. We do that by getting to know you, understanding your goals and developing individualized strategies to help you reach them.

My partner, Tammy, and I work as a team to give you the personal service you deserve when it comes to planning for your future. Please call 618-467-1111 or visit www.edwardjones.com/art-fahrner for more information.
