We are very excited to welcome Brett to the team, who for the last 15 years has built Stephens’ Fintech coverage. We believe his expertise, particularly, on the convergence of fintech and traditional banking, enhances our advice to clients and supports our continued growth in this key sector. Stephens has a legacy of long-term customer partnerships and of providing excellent strategic advice, capital raising, and M&A advisory services. With Brett’s institutional knowledge of the firm and the sector, his will be a seamless and effective transition.

I’m excited to join my colleagues on Stephens’ investment banking team in helping such organizations compete in a dynamic and ever-evolving industry.”
