Our Investment Services

Exterior shot of advisors outside Sioux City Stifel officeWe are a full service investment office based in Sioux City, Iowa serving clients through out the United States. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in our relationship with you, our client. We endeavor to know and understand your financial situation and provide you with only the highest quality information, services, and products to help you pursue your goals.


The Plan

An investment management plan begins with a thorough understanding of your goals, your risk tolerance, and personal situation. We will discuss your goals, your present and anticipated financial resources and liabilities, your past experiences, as well as your preference for risk. The plan is reviewed, monitored, and adjusted as you and your family move through the various phases of your financial life. Where appropriate, we will consult with your tax and legal advisors.  Our comprehensive strategies are designed to help you pursue your goals and help ensure your financial affairs are in order.


Our Investment Approach

We employ both fundamental and technical analysis in the design and management of investments. On the fundamental side, we analyze thousands of opportunities through Stifel's nationally-recognized research. Assets are managed via non-discretionary programs for both advisory based accounts (quarterly asset based fee where all transactions are done without commissions) and/or commission-based account (traditional brokerage account paying for transactions as you make them). Investments are matched to your strategy. These vehicles are actively monitored and re-evaluated to help ensure that they are adhering to their stated purpose and are maintaining the standard for which they were originally selected. We believe in the importance of communication and will discuss pertinent issues with you when they develop.

Your job is to keep us apprised of any changes in your financial situation and when you have additional resources  available to dedicate to your investment plan.  When appropriate, adjustments will be made to reflect current or anticipated economic or market events as well as any changes in your personal circumstances. 

Our experienced financial advisors have seen markets at their highs and lows. Through it all, we advocate a long-term approach. Our clients appreciate this perspective, and the ease of having all their assets consolidated with an experienced professional. 


Our Investment Strategies

Depending on the complexity of your needs, we leverage Stifel's resources to develop comprehensive investment strategies that typically incorporate an investment plan centered on a diversified asset allocation strategy, a risk management program, a retirement plan, and an estate transfer plan. When necessary, and with your approval, we will work with your tax and legal advisors.
