WEST BOUNTIFUL -- Edward Jones was named the number one full service brokerage firm in the August edition of SmartMoney magazine, according to Erik Knutson, a financial advisor in Bountiful.
Of the four categories surveyed by the magazine (stock picking, customer satisfaction, trust and customer statements), Edward Jones ranked highest among six other firms in the state.
SmartMoney magazine also used a customer satisfaction survey from J.D. Power and Associates, as well as a trust survey from Forrester Research, in order to determine the final rankings.
"We are honored to once again receive this recognition," said Knutson. "It is a direct reflection of the relationship we have with the individual investments we serve. Client service excellence is how Edward Jones distinguishes itself in the financial service industry."
