Pennock Idea Hub
We are creators of independent equity research. The Pennock Idea Hub team are veterans of the investment industry. Much of our team has spent their careers at Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank, RBC Capital Markets and Wood Gundy. We have taken every aspect of research back to the studs and returned to first principles. The Pennock Idea Hub marries the interests of the sell and buy side.
We offer the best research for institutional investors by:
Only publishing research from veteran Analysts
Eliminate the inherent conflicts of the traditional sell and buy side relationship
Ensure our team is always accessible; collaboration with clients nurtures our collective success
The Ideal Analyst
PIH Analysts have a proven track record of building a reputable franchise. Recognition from the Reuters Institutional Investors Survey and the Brendan Woods International Survey are a testament of their industry expertise. Through experience gained at Bulge Bracket banks, the Big 5 Canadian banks and leading independents, PIH Analysts have built relationships with senior management of industry leaders and institutional shareholders. We uncover catalysts first.
Marrying Sell & Buy Side
Research Analysts are neutered at traditional investment banks because of the conflict of interest with the firms buy side clients and the investment bankers. To remain aligned with our clients, we do not advise corporations on M&A mandates or capital raises through the equity or debt markets. Companies under coverage are not catered to. We don’t compete in the “Beauty Contests” and will not try to impress management with our recommendations or target prices. We are not a firm, eliminating the unspoken need to “Spin” our observations to protect the firm’s “Book”. We are not in the business of flattering companies or providing “Maintenance” research. There’s no compulsion to “Publish or Perish”. Our Analysts work for you.
Research Analysts working for a firm support a variety of activities – many of which do not serve the institutional investor. The fixed expenses in some brokerages have hit as high as 48%. The fees paid by clients to the firm covers all operating expenses such as: the S&T desks, investment bankers, compliance and the back office. By eliminating the S&T desks, compliance and back office, we’re able to best serve our clients by not only putting their interests first, but ensuring they remain aligned in our conflict free model.
