Edward Jones Financial Advisor Appointed To Grassroots Legislative Task Force

Melanie Marlow, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Clayton, recently was appointed to the firm’s Grassroots Legislative Task Force. The group is dedicated to voicing the concerns of individual investors to local, state and national lawmakers.

As a task force member, Melanie will travel to Washington, D.C., to discuss with lawmakers a number of investment-related issues on the minds of individual investors.

Melanie said she is genuinely concerned about legislative issues that affect individual investors. “And I want to convey investors’ views to elected officials,” she said.

Because Edward Jones is the only firm in the industry dedicated to serving individual investors exclusively, Melanie said she believes the firm is uniquely qualified to speak on behalf of those investors.

“I appreciate the opportunity to communicate the concerns of individual investors, especially those here in Johnston county, and make sure they are heard on Capitol Hill,” Melanie said.

Melanie has served the Johnston county area for Edward Jones since 2000.

Edward Jones, a Fortune 500 company headquartered in St. Louis, provides financial services in the U.S. and, through its affiliate, in Canada. Every aspect of the firm’s business, from the investments its financial advisors offer to the location of its branch offices, caters to individual investors.
