Penelope Cisneros brings individual style to investing

—Ty Belknap

Children dancing around a Maypole is not what one might expect at the grand opening of an investment office. Penelope Cisneros, the new investment representative at the Placitas Edward Jones office in Homestead Village, invited a friend who teaches at Algodones Elementary to bring members of the sixth grade class. As a former teacher and bilingual education director at Bernalillo School District, Penelope likes have children around. She keeps an assortment of frisbees, balls, and other toys to lend to the kids while parents take care of business at Homestead Village.

On May 1 representatives from the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce performed a grand-opening ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new office, and the festivities continued throughout the afternoon. Penelope explained, “I thought that May Day would be an appropriate time of rebirth for our office. I wanted to let people know that this is a part of the community. Children are an important part in financial planning for the future.”

Penelope worked at Morgan Stanley in Albuquerque for the last couple of years. She said, “I was attracted by the Edward Jones approach to a face-to-face neighborhood brokerage. Besides, I like it here and I get to spend more time at home now because I live in Placitas. I believe that you have to get to know your clients before making recommendations about financial planning.”

The office adheres to the principles of feng shui with paint and colors that correspond to parts of the layout that represent creativity, wealth, relationships, and prosperity. The “power wall” is valentine red with an abstract painting hung on a diagonal just the way Penelope likes. She says, “I like to think of planning for the future in terms of feng shui. Investors should be in tune with their individual environment, balancing financial planning with the present and future. All these frog decorations around the office are symbols of prosperity. They can’t hop backwards; they remind us to start now and move forward.”
