MoffettNathanson is a “next generation” sell-side research boutique. The firm’s sector-dominant research analysts distribute research to a select group of clients on a subscription basis.

Since its founding in 2013, MoffettNathanson has been considered the standard-bearer for Media and Communications research, and was voted the #1 Independent Research Firm in America in 2022 by Institutional Investor Magazine.

MoffettNathanson distributes its research through one of Wall Street’s most experienced salesforces.  The firm’s three senior Salespeople (Pat O’Connell, Ethan Steinberg, and John Towers) are Founding Partners of MoffettNathanson and cumulatively have over 60 years of experience in equity sales.

MoffettNathanson has been a leader in the development of the 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 manage their research budgets more effectively by paying only for the research they value most highly, while seeking best-execution trading elsewhere.
