Founded in 1890, the institution now known as Stifel, Nicolaus & Company (Stifel Nicolaus) functions as a brokerage and investment banking institution. When the Great Depression hit, the firm, then called Stifel, Nicolaus Investment Company, survived despite many of its contemporaries failing because of its innovative programs and ability to recognize successful ventures, such as Marland Oil, which eventually became Conoco.
Today, Stifel Nicolaus has branches across 45 states with professionals who understand the nuances of the field. Moreover, its services range from college and retirement planning to bill-pay and cashless stock options. To discover how Stifel Nicolaus can enhance a portfolio, visit www.stifel.com.
