Title gives the base word, the rest of these are plays on or around that word.

Add my first, and you'll turn me into an agent.
With you, we can jump and leap (for joy?).
Take and shake my only one of these in order to flex, a belt, until secure.
With an important number added on I will take control.

The answer is

Bond

Invest in this word and it'll never leave

you invest in bonds and bonds make things stick together

Add my first, and you'll turn me into an agent.

James Bond, secret agent

With you, we can jump and leap (for joy?).

With you (the letter U), we create BOUND, a leap (assist from @techidiot)

Take and shake my only one of these in order to flex, a belt, until secure.

This is a reach, but take out the O (clued by o-words "only one of"), shake it and flex it to an E,A,I to become BEND (flex), BAND (belt), and BIND (secure) (assist @Ankoganit)

With an important number added on I will take control.

Add "age" (an important number) to form BONDAGE, a recreational activity in which one of the participants is controlling the other. (assist @Ankoganit)
