Fixed Income Specialist to Lead Efforts to Expand Stifel’s Front-End Credit Sales

ST. LOUIS, June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stifel Financial Corp. (: SF) today announced the hiring of Michael Gonzales as a Managing Director in the firm’s Fixed Income Capital Markets Group.

In this role, Mr. Gonzales will lead Stifel’s efforts to expand its front-end credit sales, focusing on a broad spectrum of fixed income products, including asset-backed securities, investment-grade corporate debt, U.S. government securities, and structured notes. He will be based in the San Francisco Bay area.
