Granby’s Edward Jones financial advisor wins awards

Jan M. Knisley of the financial services firm Edward Jones recently won several awards at the firm’s summer regional meetings. The awards, albeit different in nature, recognize Edward Jones financial advisors for their work helping their clients.

The awards Jan received are: Financial Advisor of the Year, Jack Phelan Award, Winner’s Circle Award and Century Award.

“I am honored to receive these awards,” Knisley said. “I enjoy my work helping the people of Grand County plan for their financial futures, but it gives me an extra boost to receive special recognition for my work.”

James D. Weddle, managing partner for Edward Jones, said the firm makes a special effort to acknowledge exceptional work and performance by its financial advisors.

“At Edward Jones, we believe we can better serve individual investors by establishing community branch offices and having our representatives live and work in those communities,” he said.

“We realize, however, that because our financial advisors usually work alone, there isn’t much opportunity to congratulate them for a job well done. That’s why these types of awards are so important to us,” Weddle added.

Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliates, in Canada and the United Kingdom. Every aspect of the firm’s business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which they live and work.
