I highly recommend anyone with disposable income to invest in Edward Jones. Specifically I recommend that if you can part with up to $5500 per year to invest in a ROTH IRA. The best thing about a Roth is that you use after tax income which makes this different from a traditional IRA. In a ROTH your after tax dollars can grow tax free until retirement age which is now 59 and a half. I would think of a ROTH as a bucket and you can pour many different types of investments into that bucket. Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds are all worthy investments to pour into a ROTH. It is important that you find a financial professional who can help you select the best types of investments for your retirement goals. I can say personally that I am very pleased with the service my own Edward Jones financial Adviser has provided me.
