Our next guest is Mona Mahajan, a Senior Investment Strategist at Edward Jones. She discusses the latest survey from Edward Jones. According to this new study from financial services firm Edward Jones, Americans are at crossroads with how they view the current state of the U.S. economy. The survey revealed a correlation between concern and action, as the more concerned adults are with economic conditions, the larger the impact those concerns have on their financial decisions.
Mona will share additional results from the survey and address the actors that contribute to emotional investing, decision making, and expectations of financial advisors. She helps develop and communicate the firm’s macro-economic and financial market views and create impactful thought leadership to help clients meet their long-term financial goals. She also is a voting member of the asset allocation team, supporting the firm’s strategic and opportunistic portfolio allocation decisions.
