NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire — Strategas Securities, LLC announced today its continued growth with the expansion of its capital markets capabilities. The newly formed Institutional Securities Division will combine the Firm’s existing Corporate Services, Private Transactions, and Sales & Trading units with the newly formed Capital Markets group. The move will further develop services the Firm offers to more than 300 global publicly traded and private companies.
Strategas has hired James Ramp as a Managing Director to lead the effort. Mr. Ramp was formerly the head of Capital Markets at Convergex and started in mid-November. Strategas President & COO, Nicholas Bohnsack, who heads the Firm’s Institutional Securities and Financial Solutions divisions, said, “we are excited to welcome Jim Ramp to the Strategas team to assist in building out our Capital Markets initiative. This move will help our management team to fully leverage the business we began to build with the acquisition of Voyager Institutional Services in 2013.”
Strategas’ corporate services effort currently includes the organization of non-deal roadshows and unbiased macroeconomic research for corporations. The Firm’s capital markets function will seek to provide equity and debt distribution to listed companies, general advisory services to public and private corporations, private market transactions, strategic capital raising and pre-IPO advisory services for non-public entities. Strategas’ core macro research offering provides investment strategy, economic, technical, quantitative, Washington policy, and fixed income market commentary to a broad base of traditional institutional clients, public pensions, sovereign wealth funds, financial sponsors and family offices on five continents.
Jason DeSena Trennert, Strategas’ Managing Partner and Chairman, added, “Since our founding 10 years ago, we have continued to seek ways to serve the institutional investment community in the tradition of an independent private partnership. We believe the addition of capital markets services will both expand our ability to exceed our clients’ expectations and to build a first class financial services firm centered around our research.”
