New York – Earlier this week, Jefferies Group, a global investment bank and institutional securities firm focused on growing and mid-sized companies, announced it has opened its doors to 25 professionals from Bear Stearns. Almost one third of these new hires, who had worked at the deceased bank’s offices in Britain, are to beef up Jefferies’ research team.
Jefferies research covers U.S. & international equity, high yield, convertibles, investment grade fixed income, and post reorganization securities, among others. The research team includes more than 120 professionals who cover over 1,200 companies worldwide. The bank’s research analysts use quantitative and qualitative methods to build up their reports. Access to management is one of the bank’s offerings.
