ST. LOUIS, July 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stifel Financial Corp.

The reach of the combined businesses enables our enhanced practice to better serve the evolving needs of corporates, financial sponsors, entrepreneurs, and their companies across the technology ecosystem and across the globe.”
“We are excited to join the Stifel platform,” noted Patrick Seely, formerly Managing Partner at Mooreland Partners and now Co-Head of the Stifel Global Technology Group. “Together, we are able to provide our existing and future clients with a broad range of strategic advisory and capital raising services designed to support growth companies and their investors during all stages of development.”
“The acquisition of Mooreland is a clear sign of our commitment to being the middle-market advisor with the deepest sector knowledge, strongest industry relationships, and broadest product expertise anywhere in the world,” commented Cole Bader, Co-Head of the Stifel Global Technology Group. “With a significantly enhanced presence in Europe and in Silicon Valley, we believe our technology practice is well-positioned for strong and sustained growth.”
