Ross Hougland, financial advisor in the Bristol office of Edward Jones Investments, is pleased to announce the completion of a renovaton project undertaken a few months ago. The office is located at 203 E. Vistula Street, Suite A, in the Bristol Commons Building.
Ross notes that the new and spacious reception area provides “a better atmosphere for clients,” where they can “feel at home and comfortable.” The enlarged area creates “a more professional” setting in which to discuss their investments and financial goals.
Kristin Grantham is the Branch Office Administrator at the Bristol branch of Edward Jones Investments. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The telephone number is 848-9070.
With large numbers of baby boomers now reaching retirement age, Ross is dedicated to helping new retirees find ways to maximize their income. He can direct them to a variety of options that can enable them to live on their assets, without running out of money.
Ross Hougland’s investment philosophy agrees with that of Edward Jones, which emphasizes a well-balanced portfolio and a buy-and-hold strategy. As one of the firm’s 12,000-plus financial advisors, Ross embraces the goal of building long-term, face-to-face relationships with clients.
In February 2012 J. D. Power and Associates conducted a “Full Service Investor Satisfaction Study.” They found that, for the sixth year out of the past eight, Edward Jones “ranks highest in investor satisfaction with full service brokerage firms.”
The study measured satisfaction based on seven factors: investment advisor, investment performance, account information, account offerings, commissions and fees, website, and problem resolution.
Ross Hougland is pleased to be part of an organization which enjoys such a high level of investor satisfaction. He recently stated: “We are gratified that our clients find it convenient to work with us on their long-term financial goals. We enjoy working one-on-one with our clients, and believe that builds a collaborative relationship.”
