Edward Jones Aims to Hire 1,500 Brokers in 2022
Edward Jones has announced it has restarted its hiring efforts setting a target of hiring 1500 experienced brokers and trainees in 2022. For those experienced brokers, its always a good idea to consult with an experienced securities employment attorney prior to signing an offer letter or agreement. If you have an established book of business and are coming to a new firm with significant assets under management (AUM) its important to protect those relationships and accounts if things do not work out in the long run. Non-solicitation and non-compete agreements, common provisions in most broker agreements, may severely limit your ability to take those accounts and assets with you to your new firm. Likewise, if you are offered upfront money and must sign a promissory note, that document too may have severe restrictions built into it, that could impact your next move.
