With extensive market experience, our equities practice covers Equity Research, Cash Equity Sales & Trading, Electronic Trading, Equity Derivatives, Sales Trading & Structuring, and Prime Finance. We have built research teams and sales teams; we were the first search firm to focus on prime brokerage and our Equity Capital Markers hires have become some of the most senior people in the industry. As the business evolved into a key component of the universal banking model, we were involved in a great deal of that integration from a human capital perspective. Today the equity business remains a large part of our revenues, especially in research, whence all investment ideas ultimately derive.
