Michael Coleman

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money. The financial world can sometimes seem like foreign territory; I can work one-on-one with you to help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family.

Prior to joining Edward Jones, I worked for the SC Lottery. I came to Edward Jones because I wanted to help individual investors work toward achieving their financial goals. A 2003 Honors graduate of The University of South Carolina, I hold a Bachelors Degree in Finance and Risk Management. I received my MBA in 2012 in Finance as well.As a former Darla Moore Scholar, I find educating my clients on the in’s and out of the Financial Market is integral to our furthering our relationship. I am a member of Gamma Iota Sigma, NAACP,as well as numerous other organizations. Originally from the Anderson area, I have lived in Columbia since 1999. As a part of this community, I have a passion for mentoring and seeing a change in the thought process of our community. I exemplified that by coaching high school basketball from 2006 until 2013, as well as starting an AAU program designed to help develop young men into fiscally responsible men.

Whether as a Page in the SC Senate, or one of the original startup group of the SC Lottery, I have been fortunate to be apart of substantial change. That change is exemplified in my efforts to try to empower my community by working with families to create strategies that will help better their lives and their heirs.

At Edward Jones, we focus on you. The firm has thousands of people and advanced technology supporting our office so that we can help you and your family reach your long-term financial goals.
