ST. LOUIS — The newest public art in downtown St. Louis symbolizes the opposing forces of the financial markets.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Stifel Financial on Thursday unveiled a statue of a bull and bear, titled "Forces." It sits at the corner of Washington and Broadway and was sculpted by Harry Weber of Wright City.
Stifel Financial CEO Ron Kruszewski says the statue signifies the company's commitment to the city of St. Louis, where the firm was founded in 1890.
The company has more than 2,000 financial advisers.
