My Services

Specializing in the Municipal Bond Market 
Among the broad array of products and services offered through Stifel, I specialize in providing municipal bonds to my clients who are interested in tax-advantaged investing. 

Many of my clients are attracted to municipal bonds because they are exempt from federal income tax, and many cases, state and local taxes as well. 

I pride myself on continually monitoring these bonds for changes in their issuers' financial condition, credit rating, trade frequency, as well as the bonds' interest rate movement. 


Income from particular municipal bond issues may or may not be subject to state and alternative minimum taxes.  Capital gains tax may apply if sold prior to maturity.  When investing in bonds, it is important to note that as interest rates rise, bond prices will fall.

Understanding the potential risks of a Stifel Pledged Asset (SPA) Line of Credit 
Speak with your Financial Advisor about your risk tolerance level, market fluctuations, and specifically the potential risks associated with a Stifel SPA Line of Credit. 
The SPA Line of Credit is a demand loan using the assets in the account as collateral.  If the minimum required value of the collateral is not maintained, the account holder will be required to:  (1) post additional qualified collateral, (2) repay a portion or all of the debt, or (3) forfeit that shortfall in value of pledged assets to Stifel Bank & Trust.  If the call is not met, Stifel Bank & Trust can liquidate some or all of the assets in the SPA Loan Account.  If terms of the account are not maintained, Stifel Bank & Trust may call the loan due and payable.  Stifel Bank & Trust will attempt to communicate with you to determine the right course of action to alleviate a collateral shortfall. Stifel Bank & Trust has the right to sell securities as needed without your consent to meet a collateral call.
