Founded in 1933, Stephens is a privately-held, independent financial services firm focused on building value for companies, state and local governments, institutions and high-net-worth investors. We are headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas, with offices in leading cities across the country. Since our founding, Stephens has pursued an independent course. We’ve built our firm on long-term relationships and enduring values, establishing an international reputation for vision, integrity and innovation. Free from herd mentality, short-term thinking and quarter-to-quarter imperatives, we’ve always stayed focused on the people who matter most: our clients. As investors and business owners ourselves, we have a unique perspective on the world. We understand the needs and concerns of individual investors, industry leaders and public interest stewards. Because we sit on the same side of the table as our clients, we are able to understand their goals and help build their future in partnership.
