Stifel offers institutional investors differentiated, research-driven equity products with a dedication to value and service. Our experienced sales people and traders work closely with Stifel research analysts to provide timely dissemination of information to clients worldwide. We manage public offerings of equity and debt securities, raise debt and equity in the private markets, and initiate, structure, and negotiate mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.

Stifel’s operations in Europe are headquartered in London through Stifel Nicolaus Europe Limited, a UK broker dealer with representative offices in Geneva, Madrid, and Zurich. Together with MainFirst Bank AG, a German broker dealer and wholly owned subsidiary, the combined firm has over 400 debt and equity professionals in key European markets, and offers equity research coverage of more than 700 European companies. Stifel Europe’s growth has focused on building a Transatlantic debt and equity powerhouse concentrated in small and mid-cap companies and institutional investors. In 2019, Stifel Europe ranked second among all investment banks, as measured by volume of UK deals, up from No. 4 in 2018 according to ECMi (1).
