CHICAGO -Stifel, Nicolaus & Co. has hired longtime St. Louis-based public finance banker Laura Radcliff from A.G. Edwards & Sons Inc., now known as Wachovia Securities, in a move that provides a strong boost for the firm's general government and economic development practices.

Radcliff, 45, joined St. Louis-based Stifel earlier this month as a senior vice president, ending a 14-year career as a director at A.G. Edwards, where she focused on general government work and economic development deals. She is considered one of the top local bankers on tax increment financing and other development structures. She previously worked in government in economic development and urban planning positions for St. Louis County and Kansas City, Mo.
