The Stifel Story

For 130 years, meeting and exceeding the objectives of our clients has positioned our firm for success.  We believe that by placing the clients' interests first, they prosper.  It is when our clients prosper that the firm succeeds.  At Stifel, we can truly say that we predicate our success on the success of our clients.

We are nurtured by years of trust and understanding and by shared goals and shared successes.  It is our relationships with our commitment to clients that enable us to develop innovative financial strategies.  Our creativity allows individuals to pursue personal financial goals, helps businesses to raise capital, and empowers communities to offer a higher quality of life.

As we progress, we're dedicated to providing superior services and products, the newest technological advances, and industry-leading client communication, plus the professional knowledge and exclusive research that help our clients work toward financial goals.

For our clients - individual, institutional, corporate, and municipal - we strive to understand their financial needs.

Stifel has established itself as one of the nation's leading wealth managment and investment banking firms by understanding the hopes and dreams of our clients.  We've succeeded in reaching those goals by embracing the objectives of our clients, rising to the challenges of our industry, and empowering our entrepreneurial associates.

But to know our company is to understand that we expect much more from ourselves than recognition as an industry leader.
