For more than a decade, Mike Adams has been providing financial advice to clients in Chicago and the Northern Suburbs. “We partner for positive impact— to improve the lives of our clients and colleagues, and together, better our community and society,” says Adams, explaining that he joined Edward Jones because it is one of the only privately held partnerships in the industry. “We answer to our clients, not outside shareholders, which allows us to truly act in our client’s best interest. It gives me peace of mind knowing our firm is always putting the clients’ interest first.” He prides himself on leading with empathy. “I want to understand what is most important to my client,” says Adams. “Not just to retire, but what does retirement look like to them? Travel? New hobbies? Philanthropy? I help young families have the right protection and position them correctly as they plan for financial security.” Through it all, the Edward Jones investment philosophy is simple—have a long-term focus and use quality diversified investments based on your tolerance for risk to reach your goals. Some investment strategies are like a fad; they come and go. “Our philosophy has served our clients well for many generations,” he adds. “Our clients feel heard, understood, and in control. They tell us we have made a difference in their lives and this positive feedback validates the partnership we have with our clients.”
