The result is a set of investments that offer broad diversification coupled with the ability to tailor portfolios to the goals and risk tolerance of each trust.

The Stifel Trust Investment Philosophy

Our investment approach incorporates managed money and asset allocation strategies to help mitigate risk and work toward investment objectives. Your trust's investment portfolio may be comprised of:

  • A mix of carefully selected mutual funds;
  • Individual securities managed by professional managers; or
  • A blend of mutual funds, exchange traded funds, and professionally managed securities.

Your account's size and objectives will determine which option is best suited to your trust.

White Glove Service

At many other firms, client service comes in the form of a call center. The level of support you receive may depend on which anonymous worker answers your phone call.

At Stifel, however, your trusted Financial Advisor serves as your primary point of contact. He or she is backed by a dedicated Trust Officer and Investment Officer at Stifel Trust – specific professionals assigned to your account.
