What's an MBAassist?  Could that be the world biggest dumbass?

I am so freaking jealous that my skin is itching.  Anyone have a suggestion on who I should talk to at EDJ to try and get my old job back?  Is there hope or am I dead in the water here? 


 Help Please!!

So when JD Power announces this, is this in the same article that announces that some new Ferrari has the best engine in its class?  I've heard of diversification, but this seems like a little disconnect to me.

That's Great News!   I still have the replica of the first one they won several years ago- I use it to keep the bathroom door open. I had to pay $65 for it- now I can sell it along with my one (1) sleeve of American Funds Golf Balls to the Edward Jones History of Culture and Cult Museum scheduled to open in the fall of 2012- timed to coincide with everybody getting e-mail.

JD Powers and Associates just announced they are #1 in conducting totally useless surveys.

Jun 29, 2006 3:50 pm

A close friend of mine who now works for ML said that it is mandatory to have a poster of JD Power and associates in every brokers office to help persuade their clients keep their money there

Wrong.

Come on people...you have to give them some credit.  In the real fine print when you go to JD Power's website it says that LPL, Dain Rauscher, and others were used in the compilation of the numbers but the sample size was too small.  That is very interesting to me.  I wish they would tell us what the sample size was. 


I guess when you send out 1500 surveys to clients doing $25/month into a mutual fund A-Share and then paying $30/annual custodial fee, they must respond with JOY! 


I think the Cerrulli and Associates surveys are much more insightful!

Jun 29, 2006 4:13 pm

This is an example of statistics used in an interesting way....if your average client is small, you have to have lots of PEOPLE.  That translates to more votes....I wonder if you did a asset weighted version of this what it would look like.  Although, I bet the 1 asst per broker thing helps ma and pa get more attention than elsewhere.

That close friend is an idiot as it is not MANDATORY.  It is a congratulatory momento of the great job we do for our clients.

OK it is obvious now.  MBAassist is IH No "i" with a new name.  Only someone trying to get people worked up could say something that stupid.  And his name... are we supposed to believe that someone with an MBA is working as a BOA at Jones?  This is a joke.


MBA you are a dumbass.

Jun 29, 2006 5:29 pm

Not even MaxDud would believe that someone with an MBA, even from some online degree mill, would work at the great EDJ as a BOA.

The Jones press release says that Jones scored particularly well for more affluent clients, apparently contradicting claims on this forum.


The JD Power web site says "new clients are primarily motivated by a strong brand image and recommendations they receive from colleagues and family." Here it is often claimed the firm does not matter at all.

Let's ALL OF US go to work for jones and then they can be the ONLY firm and then PERPETUALLY win the jd power and Am. Funds can go to eleventy kabillion in assets and we can sit around the campfire eating s'mores and drinking kool aid and singing Kumbaya. Yeh, that's it. That's the answer for EVERYTHING.
