Financial adviser recognized for building client relationships

From Edward Jones

Roy L. Parker of the financial services firm Edward Jones in Washington recently won the firm’s Jim Harrod Award for his exceptional achievement in building client relationships.
Parker was one of 613 of the firm’s 14,000 financial advisors to receive the Jim Harrod award.
The award is named after Jim Harrod, whose many contributions during his 28-year career earned him induction into the firm’s Hall of Fame in 2011.
“It’s truly an honor to receive recognition for building relationships with those clients we serve,” Parker said. “And it’s quite inspirational to receive an award named after a firm legend such as Jim Harrod, who was dedicated to individual investors and understood each investor’s unique financial goals.”
“Roy’s success hinges on his ability to know and understand the financial needs and goals of his clients, long-term individual investors,” said Jim Weddle, the firm’s managing partner. “Our clients most appreciate recommendations tailored to their situations and the high level of personal service Roy provides.”
