As a financial advisor, you understand the need to access insightful, objective research and timely information to assist in making sound investment decisions. Through your affiliation with Century, you will have access to the comprehensive research capabilities of our sister firm, Stifel Nicolaus.
Stifel Nicolaus’ Equity Research Group is one of the nation’s largest, most respected domestic equity research departments, providing coverage of nearly 1,200 companies (including 87 closed-end funds) across 13 industries. Stifel Research focuses on all market caps, but is a leader in small- and mid-cap coverage.
This group is staffed predominately with industry professionals from outside Wall Street. In fact, of the more than 220 professionals who make up the Equity Research Group, approximately 50% of our analysts have hands-on work experience in the industry that they cover. These award-winning analysts are dedicated to seeking out more and better investment ideas for your clients, and they have the accolades to prove it.
In addition to Stifel research, Century advisors also have access to research from two nationally acclaimed third-party firms. These research correspondents provide insight into leading national and international companies, equipping advisors with the broad-based knowledge they require in identifying securities that offer an attractive current yield and/or potential appreciation.
