A Custom Plan Deserves a Range of Services

Our Services

Our services cover all areas of wealth management, from investment and retirement planning to risk mitigation strategies and issues surrounding estate planning. We specialize in helping our clients develop a comprehensive, cohesive financial strategy that fits their unique needs and enables them to pursue both short- and long-term goals.

Wealth Planning

Wealth Planning

We understand that you have a unique set of circumstances that shape your financial goals and objectives. Our holistic approach to wealth planning leverages the knowledge and expertise of Stifel’s experienced professionals to address all aspects of your financial situation. The financial planning process provides you the opportunity to assess financial and non-financial assets, saving and investing practices, and the ability of these to meet your stated long-term financial goals.

Retirement Planning

Retirement Planning

Whether you are early in your career or actively contemplating retirement, a business owner or an individual, it’s never too late to put a plan of action into place. We can help you find the right plan and the right investments to help pursue your retirement goals.

Estate Planning

Estate Planning

Estate planning encompasses more than the distribution of your estate to your heirs. It is a process designed to identify the best way to accumulate, preserve, and pass your wealth by implementing a plan to meet all of your objectives. A carefully prepared estate plan can help you address lifetime management issues and ensure you are financially prepared to meet with an estate planning attorney.

Insurance

We can provide you with a range of insurance services, including life insurance, long-term care insurance, and disability insurance. Stifel represents some of the most stable, trusted providers in the insurance industry, and we will work you to determine the types and amount of coverage that are most appropriate for you and your family.

Using Stifel’s planning capabilities, we’ll analyze your particular investing behaviors, individual preferences, and the asset classes that align with your risk tolerance and customized investment plan. Our asset management affiliates employ a diverse range of active equity, fixed income, asset allocation, and alternative investment strategies.

Our investment bank is a leader in the middle market, which gives us a unique perspective on emerging managers on our platform.
