At Stifel, we believe in strong individual relationships that stand the test of time. Our knowledgeable Financial Advisors offer a personalized approach to finding the best strategies for your financial needs. We truly believe that by placing your needs and interests first, you will prosper. We are dedicated to providing innovative, creative, high-quality, and value-added products and services to help you pursue your goals.

We have established ourselves as one of the nation's leading wealth management and investment banking firms. With more than 400 offices across the nation, our philosophy on investing is grounded on a more than 125-year-old tradition of trust, understanding, and solid, studied advice. Established in 1890, our company provides a comprehensive portfolio of financial services designed to meet the varied needs of a broad range of investors.

After more than 125 years in the financial services industry, through two World Wars, a major depression, and various recessions and business cycles, we created a tradition of enhancing client knowledge and understanding of investment products and their application in addressing financial objectives. Though large enough to offer a broad range of products and services and to compete successfully within our industry, the firm still remains a comfortable size where clients and associates are always treated as individuals.

The company has grown significantly over the years, both organically and through acquisitions, making Stifel one of the nation's premier independent wealth management and investment banking firms with one of the nation's largest domestic equity research franchises.

In terms of number of Financial Advisors, Stifel is the nation's 7th largest full-service investment firm. In fact, in 2009 and 2010, Stifel was named to Fortune's 100 Fastest-Growing Companies list. The Stifel Equity Research Group has ranked in the top 10 of the Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards for 12 consecutive years (includes Keefe, Bruyette & Woods (KBW), a wholly owned subsidiary of Stifel Financial Corp., and other firms acquired by Stifel). Stifel and KBW combined for a No. 3 ranking in 2018.*

As the trend for consolidation in the investment industry continues, many of Stifel's competitors are merging into ever larger multi-national financial services providers. While Stifel has grown and evolved as well, it has not abandoned the values that have contributed to its success for well over a century.


*Stifel & KBW ranked third among 152 qualifying U.S. firms in 2018.  For more information about the Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards, see
