Updated June 22, 2017

Proclamation presented June 27, 2013 to Edward Jones at Cerritos City Council Chambers.

Edward Jones’ history dates back to 1922 when the first office opened in St. Louis, Missouri. On November 18, 1996, the firm opened its 3,481st branch in Cerritos on South Street and Carmenita Road. The company serves one client: the serious, long-term individual investor. Edward Jones defines its clients by the value they place on the company’s personalized advice, guidance and service. Edward Jones values working in partnership with its clients.

Edward Jones serves nearly 7 million investors and has more offices than any other investment firm in America. The company attributes its success to its principles and personal, long-term approach to investing.

Edward Jones has three core values that define its business strategy. These include:

  • The clients’ interests come first;
  • Belief in a quality-oriented, long-term investment philosophy; and
  • Individuals and their contributions are valued and respected.

Edward Jones has consistently been ranked among the best companies to work for by “Fortune Magazine” and its employees tend to stay with the firm. Since it is still a privately owned company, Edward Jones has a very personal feel that’s almost like family.

The Cerritos Edward Jones branch team believes it’s important to invest time to understand what its clients are working towards before they invest their money. Tho Ngo, financial advisor for the Cerritos branch, began her Edward Jones career in 2010 and earned a bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies from the University of California at Berkeley. She received the AAMS® professional designation in 2012.

Edward Jones’ branch office administrator, Bernice Sandoval, has 13 years of experience and is dedicated to providing clients with the highest level of service. “Relationships are key, and in our view, meeting face to face builds strong relationships. We meet when it’s convenient for our clients because we recognize the challenging needs of their business and their lives.”
