Edward Jones has proved a steady grower under Pennington, with net revenue up nearly 11% since she took the helm in 2019. The brokerage, with $1.3 trillion under management, has not performed nearly as well on diversity: Only 8% of the firm’s financial advisers are people of color, and 21% are women. Pennington has committed to doubling down on recruitment and advancement of diverse candidates.
