Since 1933, Stephens has been a regional
leader in public finance investment banking. From our base in
Arkansas, we have opened new offices in the south and southeastern
portion of the country. As other firms have sold,
consolidated or closed, Stephens has continued to expand its
offices and professional staff.
Reflecting our firm’s Mission and Values Statement, we believe
the business of public finance is centered in trust and long-term
relationships. Many of our public finance clients have been
served by representatives of Public Finance for decades.
Stephens’ professionals have significant
tenure in public finance. In fact our senior bankers have on
average 25 years of experience within the industry, representing a
range of tax-exempt issuers.
Our practice includes negotiated and
competitive underwritings, as well as financial advisory
services. The Firm’s securities distribution capability, both
retail and institutional, is a proven strength. As a result
of our capital position, we are able to underwrite bonds quickly
and efficiently for clients.
