New York based investment bank, Seaport Global Securities, recently announced that II Ranked Healthcare analyst Joe France, CFA, has recently joined the firm’s Seaport Research Partners (SRP) team, a platform that enables sell-side analysts to support and grow their research franchises.
Newest Addition to SRP
Joe France, CFA joins Seaport Research Partners following more than 25 years as both a sell-side and buy-side analyst covering large and small capitalization managed care companies, health care services, medical devices, health care real estate, and health care policy.
Prior to joining SPR, Joe spent more than 7 years at Cantor Fitzgerald as Managing Director, covering healthcare stocks. Previously, Mr. France spent more than one year at Gleacher & Co., where he served as a Managing Director covering the healthcare services and managed care sectors. Earlier in his career, Joe worked for more than 13 years at Lenrock Management, Banc of America Securities, Credit Suisse, and Smith Barney. Mr. France earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy and MBA from the University of Kansas. He is also a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and a member of the CFA Institute and CFA Society Boston.

Currently, SRP provides research coverage of the Consumer, Energy, Financials, Healthcare, Industrials, Materials, SPACs, Transportation, Utilities & Power sectors.
The addition of a highly ranked senior healthcare analyst like Joe France, CFA is quite an achievement for Seaport Research Partners. Not only is he a highly regarded sell-side analyst, but he is also the first healthcare analyst that has joined the SRP team.
A few of the other ranked analysts who have joined SRP include James Mitchell, previously of Buckingham Research and UBS covering Banks & Brokers; Angie Storoyznski formerly with Macquarie Capital and HSBC covering Utilities, Power & Waste; Chris Brendler previously with Legg Mason, Stifel and Buckingham covering Fintech & Payments companies; and, Mark Weintraub formerly with Seaport, Buckingham and Goldman Sachs covering Paper, Forest Products & Homebuilders.
