Stifel Financial Corporation has opened another Central Valley location in Modesto.
The location, at 1539 McHenry Ave., Ste. A, is the 39th Stifel office in California. It will be run by the team of Dane and Randy Anderson.
Between them, the Andersons have more than 71 years of investment experience. They previously worked with Wells Fargo Advisors, handling upwards of $200 million in client assets.
The environment at Stifel appeals to the team due to the flexibility the company gives its advisors.
“Stifel is an entrepreneurial environment where advisors can run their business the way they think is best for them and their clients,” said Dane Anderson. “Thanks to Stifel’s advisor- and client-centric culture, I feel our clients will truly benefit in our transition to Stifel.”
Many advisors in the investment industry have worked together in past roles, especially at places such as A.G. Edwards.
“I am thrilled to reunited with Dane and Randy after having worked with them for years at A.G. Edwards,” said John Lee, who is now the Western Region director for Stifel. “I maintain that this is a relationship business built on trust, and to have these trusted advisors join Stifel where they can be the center of the relationship with their clients and not worry about corporate interference is exciting for them, and we are excited to have them.”
Stifel was founded in 1890 by Benjamin Altheimer and Edward Rawlings as a general securities business. They brought Herman Charles Stifel onboard seven years later as their treasurer. Henry J. Nicolaus joined the company in 1910, along with his son Louis. In 1923, it was renamed Stifel, Nicolaus Investment Company.
