Lee Busby, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Monticello, recently returned from the firm’s 2019 Financial Advisor Leaders Conference held on May 14-17 at the firm’s headquarters in St. Louis.

The conference recognizes financial advisors who are among the leaders in the financial services firm and provides additional training to help them serve more individual investors in their communities.

Busby was among the top 5 percent of financial advisors in the firm who qualified out of the more than 18,000 financial advisors for Edward Jones in the U.S. and Canada.

“Qualifying for this conference shows a tremendous amount of discipline, commitment and work ethic,” said John Rahal, an Edward Jones partner responsible for the firm’s recognition events.

Busby acknowledges that the success of his branch office would not be possible without a strong team.

“This level of achievement only occurs when you have outstanding support,” he said. “Our team makes it possible for me to focus my time and attention on implementing financial solutions to our clients.”

Working with Busby are Karen Withers, Kedran Handly and Penny Sturgis.
