ST. LOUIS, June 30, 2021 – Stifel Financial Corp. (NYSE: SF) today announced that the Ridley and Hull Wealth Management Group has joined the firm’s broker-dealer subsidiary, Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated, in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Consisting of financial advisors John Ridley and Derek Hull, the team comes to Stifel from Wells Fargo Advisors, where they were responsible for $600 million in client assets.
“We see this as a perfect fit,” said Mr. Ridley. “Stifel is both well established and yet nimble enough to operate from the client’s perspective. We are honored with the trust and confidence of our clients, and we believe that trust will be well served by Stifel.”
“We chose to move to Stifel for its culture, capabilities, and commitment to clients,” added Mr. Hull. “After researching a number of firms, it became clear to us that Stifel had the resources we needed for our practice, coupled with an entrepreneurial spirit we had been missing.”
“We’re excited to grow our presence in Western Kentucky with the Ridley and Hull Wealth Management Group,” said Guy Richardson, Branch Manager. “John and Derek are client-oriented, community-focused financial advisors, and they are tremendous additions to the outstanding team we’ve built in Bowling Green since the office opened last year.”
