MoffettNathanson LLC is a “next generation” independent sell-side research boutique. The firm partners with sector-dominant research analysts whose research is distributed to a select group of clients on a sector-by-sector subscription basis.
Since its founding in 2013, MoffettNathanson has been considered the standard-bearer for Media and Communications research. The firm has begun to expand beyond this original sector, recently adding both Payments, Processors & IT Services and Retail/Internet Retail to its research offerings.
MoffettNathanson’s Senior Research Analysts (Craig Moffett, Michael Nathanson, and Lisa Ellis) have each consistently been ranked the #1 analyst in their respective sectors by the Institutional Investor All-American Research Team, as well as by other leading surveys of institutional investors.
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 50 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.
