Paul Nolette, a financial adviser working out of the Edward Jones location at 1506 E. Main St., has been with the company for seven years.

He came to Albert Lea in January from Mankato.

Nolette said Edward Jones was founded in 1922 in St. Louis, Missouri,  by Edward D. Jones and was typical of most New York exchange firms. In 1948, the founder’s son, Ted Jones, returned to the family business after studying agriculture and working on Wall Street.

While working his territory in Missouri and Illinois, he began experimenting with the concept of having branch offices outside of St. Louis.

Today, Edward Jones has over 11,000 branch offices, and revenue has grown from $16 million in 1977 to over $6 billion annually. The firm employs over 30,000 people.

Nolette said the company has a tool where it can create a customized financial plan tailored to each individual investor. Clients also have the ability to view their investments anywhere at anytime from many devices. (Further reading: how to invest in bitcoin UK at the right time)
