In fact, if you hold multiple accounts with various brokers, it can be difficult to keep track of your investments and to see if you're properly diversified.* At the very least, multiple accounts usually mean multiple fees. Bringing your accounts to Edward Jones could help solve all that. Plus, one statement can make it easier to see if you're moving toward your goals. *Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss. To learn why consolidating your retirement accounts to Edward Jones makes sense, call your local financial advisor today.
