Concept Capital, an institutional broker and solutions provider for global investment managers, has added Teddy Downey and Chris Krueger to its Washington research group.

Downey and Krueger will focus on political strategy and event-driven Washington research.

With their arrival, Concept Capital will also formalize its practice of exclusive ‘Washington Days’ for clients in its key sectors.

Concept’s Washington research group is a 15-member policy analyst team with a 35-year history of providing institutional investors with insights about the impact of US policy on their investment decisions. The team aims to be the professional investor’s "one-stop shop" for all things Washington.

‘Having Teddy and Chris on board will add a macro-political dimension to our Washington research, and will provide clients with unique access to Washington decision-makers,’ says Concept Capital Markets chief executive Robert Moore.

Downey has spent his entire career immersed in Washington politics, including working on presidential campaigns, for a political consulting firm, as an analyst for FBR Capital Markets’ Washington policy group, and most recently as the founding-member of a policy research team at Potomac Research, where he hired Krueger.

Krueger’s experience is also in politics, including working on a major election-year project for the Center for US Global Engagement and spending several years as senior staff of the US House of Representatives Committee on House Administration as the chief liaison to the other standing committees and House Republican leadership.
