Axiom Capital to expand institutional research business

RELATED TOPICS​

Axiom Capital Management has expanded its institutional research group (IRG) to complement its growing multi-asset class trading operation.

With the IRG, Axiom Capital is deploying a hybrid approach to the traditional Wall Street research model, combining internal, high-quality analyst teams with exclusive external research firms under multi-year agreements.
 
The end goal is to offer the highest quality content and information to Axiom’s buy-side clients, regardless of whether it is internal or resides outside the firm.
 
Michael Dolan was recently hired to lead the expansion of this business and comes to Axiom with over 20 years of experience on Wall Street, specifically focused on investment research, sales and distribution. The division added four dedicated sales professionals, in addition to external analyst teams covering healthcare, retail and technology, which accompany the in-house coverage of alternative energy and mining. These analyst teams possess years of industry experience and employ innovative primary research methodologies to provide unique analysis to institutional investors.
 
Through Axiom, buy-side clients will be able to generate commission credits across a range of global markets and asset classes provided by a seasoned group of sales trading professionals averaging 15 years of equity and options trading experience. Recent additions to the trading team include former executives from Morgan Stanley, Barclays (Lehman Brothers) and Pulse Trading.
 
“Knowing that we could combine high-quality and innovative content with an extremely robust and methodical approach to execution gave my team and I the confidence that we could help our customer base in a meaningful way,” says Dolan.
 
To help attract high-quality content, Axiom is offering leading analysts an opportunity to help launch their own brand with the ultimate goal of becoming an independently owned business. For high quality analysts with entrepreneurial aspirations, Axiom can structure their business line as a company-within-a-company where they can leverage the firm’s full suite of resources across sales and trading.
 
“At Axiom, we didn’t want the traditional Wall Street structure to limit our ability to deliver innovative and differentiated research to the buy-side,” says Mark Martino, president and CEO of Axiom Capital. “Our approach of hiring and partnering with the highest calibre, most innovative analyst teams will continue to ensure Axiom’s clients are armed with the highest quality data and information in the marketplace. Mike’s track record speaks for itself and we are thrilled that he and his team have decided to join Axiom.”
 
For research firms and analyst teams that pass the rigorous vetting process, IRG will provide dedicated outsourced sales, marketing and trading coverage on an exclusive basis. IRG’s internal and external analyst teams will benefit from working with an experienced sales and trading team possessing strong relationships with leading mutual funds, hedge funds and registered investment advisors. Axiom plans to expand research coverage into other sectors including financials, industrials, utilities and oil & gas.
