How we work together

No two investors are alike. That's why we offer a variety of account options that let you decide how you work with us. From hands-on accounts that put you in control, to choices with built-in guidance, the decision is yours.

Edward Jones is a dually registered broker-dealer and investment adviser. Edward Jones Advisory Solutions® is a wrap fee program that provides investment advisory services for an asset-based fee. Depending on a client’s minimum investment, a client can select Fund Models, which invest in affiliated mutual funds (if available), unaffiliated mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), or UMA Models, which also include separately managed allocations (SMAs). Please note that Benefit Plan accounts (as defined in the Client Agreement and Brochure) participating in Advisory Solutions Fund Models prior to June 1, 2018, do not pay the Portfolio Strategy Fee. Please review the applicable Edward Jones Advisory Solutions Brochure for more information.

Edward Jones Guided Solutions® is a client-directed advisory program designed to provide the client with ongoing investment advice, guidance and services for an asset-based fee. Depending on a client’s minimum investment, a client can select a Guided Solutions Fund Account, which permits investment in eligible mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), or a Guided Solutions Flex Account, which also permits investment in eligible stocks and, for accounts of $50,000 or more, individual bonds and CDs. Within the Guided Solutions Fund Account, accounts can be established with an initial investment amount of less than $5,000 and are not subject to an account minimum. Until these accounts reach $5,000, they are limited in the number and type of investments that may be purchased or held. Please review the applicable Edward Jones Guided Solutions Brochure for more information.

The Edward Jones Select Account is a transactional (brokerage) account. You pay a commission when you buy and sell certain investments. Some investments, such as mutual funds, may also have internal expenses in addition to a sales charge. There is no minimum investment for a Select Account; however, some investments in Select Accounts require minimum purchase amounts. In an Edward Jones Select Account, you can build your portfolio with a range of investment choices that includes stocks, bonds, CDs, mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and annuities.

Certain brokerage accounts may not be part of the Select Account program. These accounts include some non-ERISA retirement plans, ERISA retirement plans, Flex Fund accounts and pooled employer retirement plans. Please contact your financial advisor for additional information. Purchases of annuities in a Select Account may require at least a $10,000 minimum.
