NEW YORK, March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MoffettNathanson, LLC announced today that veteran Software Analyst Adam Holt has joined the firm as a Partner, and as the leader of the firm's newly-established Software and Services Research effort.
Adam is among the best known and most-widely respected research analysts on Wall Street. His return to the equity research business, after three years as an investment banker, will be welcomed by the Technology investment community, and marks an important growth milestone for MoffettNathanson.
Holt was most recently a Partner at Qatalyst Partners, where he led the firm's Software Investment Banking practice. While at Qatalyst, he advised more than one hundred Software companies on a wide range of financial and strategic matters, helping the firm complete $64 billion of software-related M&A and financing transactions.
Prior to Qatalyst, Adam was the Global Head of Software Research at both Morgan Stanley and J.P. Morgan, where he was ranked the #1 Software analyst in America by Institutional Investor Magazine and/or Greenwich Associates for six consecutive years. He has a total of 17 years of experience as a highly-regarded Software analyst.
"We are thrilled to partner with Adam, and to welcome him back to the sell-side research business," MoffettNathanson co-founder Craig Moffett said. "Adam's hands-on experience as a deal-maker over the past three years will bring a new dimension to what has consistently been a dominant research franchise," added co-founder Michael Nathanson.
Holt said, "I'm excited to join a firm which is uniquely well-positioned within the rapidly-changing sell-side research industry. I look forward to providing differentiated and impactful research to a select group of clients."
MoffettNathanson has been a leader in the development of Wall Street's subscription-based payment model. A combination of regulatory and competitive forces is leading to the rapid dissolution of trading as the primary means of payment for research service. MoffettNathanson's subscription-based payment model allows the firm's clients to more effectively manage their research budgets, by paying only for the research they value highly, while separately seeking best-execution trading.
The creation of a Software & Services Research effort represents MoffettNathanson's first expansion beyond its Media/Telecommunications research roots since the firm's founding four years ago.
The firm plans to partner with other sector-dominant analysts going forward, according to its COO and Director of Research, Michael Rietbrock.
