Company History

Morris and Sigmund Stern immigrated to the United States from Germany at the end of the 19th century because their Bavarian village was too small to contain their dreams for a better life. Even as teenagers, the brothers knew that people who succeed in business create their own opportunities.

Who We Are

Stern Brothers is a wholly woman-owned business and is one of the few remaining independent, private investment banks in the country.
As a privately-held investment bank, Stern Brothers is not tied to larger broker-dealers or commercial banks that may have priorities other than public finance or that may have excessive exposure to derivatives or credit default swaps. In addition, unlike our competitors, the majority of the capital of our firm is dedicated to public finance.
