Eric Loy

Branch Manager, Senior Vice President – Investments


As a financial advisor, I firmly embrace the principle of putting my clients first and working with them in an atmosphere characterized by trust, integrity and mutual respect.

My client-first commitment to you begins by asking questions and listening to your responses about your current situation and plans for the future. Are you caring for a family? What are your income needs now and during retirement? Are you transitioning your wealth to the next generation?

As we discuss these issues, we’ll work side-by-side to evaluate your current financial picture and explore your investment time horizon and your tolerance for risk. Each of these steps will help us develop a personalized investment program that will be designed to meet your current and projected needs.


Drawn by their client-centered approach to financial services, I joined Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. in 2017 as branch manager of our Springfield office. I began my financial services career in 1998, and I’m passionate about educating clients and helping them achieve their goals through proper planning and investment strategies.

Outside of work, I like to spend time with my wife, Patricia Jane (PJ), and our three sons—Spencer, Tucker and Reid. I enjoy reading, traveling, running as well as coaching and watching youth sports. I’m also a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.
