SEATTLE (May 9, 2006) — Piper Jaffray & Co. is pleased to announce that R. Stephen Meyers, senior vice president-investments, was chosen by The Winner's Circle Organization as one of America's Top Financial Advisors. Meyers was ranked 87th on the list of 100 financial advisors, which was unveiled in the April 24 issue of Barron's.

Candidates were evaluated by seasoned researcher R.J. Shook, who writes extensively about the brokerage industry in his annual Winner's Circle books. The ranking is chosen through a host of quantitative and qualitative criteria, ranging from assets managed, revenue produced, experience levels, acceptable compliance records and U4 forms, and discussions with management.

According to Shook, "These financial advisors are helping to rewrite the rules of our business and are making a difference in the lives of their clients."

Meyers has been with Piper Jaffray for 21 years. He is also involved in community charitable organizations, contributing his time and chairing several committees for the Northwest Kidney Centers and the Northwest Kidney Centers Foundation where he is responsible for providing oversight and management advice for their various retirement plans as well as for the Foundation's Endowment Fund.
