Stifel Reports February 2024 Operating Data


ST. LOUIS, March 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stifel Financial Corp. (NYSE: SF) today reported selected operating results for February 29, 2024 in an effort to provide timely information to investors on certain key performance metrics. Due to the limited nature of this data, a consistent correlation to earnings should not be assumed.

Ronald J. Kruszewski, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “In February, total client assets under management climbed to a record $458 billion, including a record $172 billion in fee-based assets. This represents a three percent increase from the prior month, driven by strong equity markets and financial advisor recruiting. Client money market and insured products increased 1% from January, despite modest seasonal cash sorting. While the environment for investment banking continues to improve, delays in deal closings remain a headwind for the business.”
