First Empire was acquired by Stifel Financial Corp. on January 1, 2019. Preparations are currently underway to transition First Empire clients to Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated, a registered broker-dealer and subsidiary of Stifel Financial Corp.

To ensure a smooth transition, we are recommending that our clients amend their policies by adding Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated as an approved broker-dealer and custodian, while also keeping First Empire Securities on that list. If you have any questions regarding the conversion process, please contact your account representative or the operations department at 800-645-5424.
