Our Sponsor Spotlight Shines On...

David Shires of Edward Jones Investments

As a firm, we're focused on doing what is best for our clients. That's why we're dedicated to serving the needs of the individual investor and why we do so on a one-to-one basis from neighborhood offices. Some people believe that kind of thinking is old-fashioned or even unfashionable, but we're okay with it.

Who Should Invest With Us

We'll be the first to say it: Edward Jones isn't the right choice for everyone. For decades, we've believed in the same basic strategy of investing in quality investments that have proven themselves over time. We understand that this approach may be considered old-fashioned in this day and age. But if it means helping investors realize their goals, it's an approach we're going to stick to. If we aren't the right choice for you, that's okay - another investment firm that fits your personality can better serve your financial and investment needs.

If we are the right choice, David Shires is ready to serve you. Please call for an appointment at 745-0181. The office is located at 98th & Indiana in the Kohl's Plaza.
