Join Stifel Nicolaus?
I work at Wachovia and have spoken informally about joining Stifel Nicolaus. I really like Wachovia but their payout for newer FAs sucks. What's great about Wachovia is the research and technology.
Can anyone tell me about Stifel's research and technology.
In a recent article, the CEO, said he would gladly take any producer at the $300K level.. Seems to be a rather private regional, not a lot of info out there.. Though all I hear is good things about them.. I have some exisiting clients that refuse to leave...
They are very big in St. Louis. Well respected. Manage the "Old" money in St. Louis
As a consumer of their research, I would say it's A+. Not sure what you would get as an FA there.
You might want to wait a little while. Stifel is still sorting out their problems with auction rate securities.
