David Epstein joins New Street Research

NEW YORK, November 28, 2017

New Street Research are pleased to announce the appointment of David Epstein to the role of Global Chief Operating Officer, effective December 5. David will be based in New York and will join the New Street Global Management Committee. David joins New Street Research from Gerson Lehman Group where he was Head of Business Intelligence and Lean Operations and ran the Pricing Desk. Formerly a consultant with McKinsey and Company, David also brings a wealth of relevant experience to the firm from both buy-side (Bridgewater Associates) and sell-side (BNP Paribas) in a variety of operating roles.

Iain Johnston, Senior Partner of New Street Research LLP, said: “We look forward to David joining us at a time of radical change for the research industry. David will be instrumental in building out our global franchise across The Americas, Europe and Asia; his hiring reflects our confidence in the opportunity to grow our world-class equity research business as other market participants reduce their commitment to the provision of intellectual capital.” Jonathan Chaplin, Managing Partner of New Street Research LLC, added: “David’s focus on operations will enhance the ability of our analysts in all time zones to deliver the fresh, alternative and independent perspective and insight that has always been the hallmark of our research product. We are aiming to deliver the best user experience to our growing global institutional user base—David will be fully engaged in optimizing the New Street research product and service to all our clients. I am excited about the opportunity to build, with David, an even stronger business and deeper client experience.”
