Local Business Spotlight: Bruce Faulk, Edward Jones
Bruce Faulk went to college with two goals in mind: to help people and do something he loved.
As a financial adviser for Edward Jones, Faulk is able to combine his passion for finance and his love of helping others in to his new career.
“I, basically, help people plan for retirement, pay for education and plan their estate,” Faulk said. “I learn what is important to people and used our established process to achieve their financial goals. We want to partner with them to ensure they reach those goals and stay on track.”
Edward Jones is a full-service investment firm, and has been in operation since 1922. At the corporate level, Edward Jones has more than 14,000 offices across the United States and Canada. The company has 7 million clients and $1 trillion asset under management worldwide
Faulk meets daily with people from a variety of situations, and works with them to help better their financial futures.
He says Edward Jones has a trusted process about investors can see benefits and improvement, but mentioned one key thing anyone can do to help ensure they have a prosperous financial future.
“Prioritize your goals,” said Faulk. “You need to come up with a strategy that helps you reach your financial goals, but at the same time have enough for both. If you can make it a timely process, and adjust it when you need to, things will keep trending in the right way.”
Faulk graduated from Auburn and has been a part of the Eufaula community since January. It didn’t take him long before he felt right at home.
“I’m a fisherman, so this place is great for me,” said Faulk. “The small-town atmosphere is fantastic. I grew up in a town a little bit smaller than Eufaula, and I see some of the same aspects from then to now. Everyone has been so welcoming, and out to help. From what I have seen, everyone wants to see the town succeed and works together to try to find a solution to problems.”
