Dan formerly spent over 15 years at Merrill Lynch in Global Research, a portion of which he worked closely with Rich Bernstein and Lisa Kirschner (RBA's Director of Research).
"Dan is an ideal addition to RBA's investment team given his background as an Equity Strategist and his belief in the importance of generating alpha by getting the major asset allocation decisions right versus stock selection. That is the hallmark of what we do at RBA and we believe Dan will become a vital contributor to the firm's suite of global, go-anywhere portfolios," said founder and Chief Investment Officer Richard Bernstein. Dan will jointly report to Richard and to John McCombe, President.
Dan served as the Senior Equity Strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Research and worked at the firm for over 15 years. In addition to heading the US Small and Mid-Cap Strategy research product, he authored the S&P 500® EPS Outlook and other regularly published firm-wide commentary. Dan is a frequent guest on CNBC, Bloomberg TV and is often quoted in leading financial publications including: The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times and Barron's.
"I'm very excited to join RBA and to work once again with Rich and Lisa Kirschner as well as the rest of the Investment team," Suzuki said. RBA offers a unique approach to investing that focuses on fundamentals via an arsenal of inhouse indicators that were honed during Rich's time at Merrill Lynch and have been enhanced since. "I've also done a tremendous amount of work on the relationship between macro factors and asset returns. I hope to bring a unique perspective to what is already a very talented investment team," said Suzuki.
John McCombe added, "given Dan's long tenure working with and interacting with Financial Advisors, he will also help in articulating the RBA story to our existing and potential clients across our product line - mutual funds, ETF SMA portfolio's and institutional separate accounts."
