Ranked a top stock-picking analyst by Bloomberg, GLJ founder and CEO Gordon Johnson has more than 15 years of equity research experience, having held senior positions at JPMorgan, Credit Suisse and Axiom Capital Management. He most recently served as managing director at Vertical Group. Founding partner James Bardowski will serve as GLJ’s chief investment officer, having worked with Johnson for more than five years at Vertical and Axiom. Bardowski has also held key research and analysis positions at State Street, RJ Finlay, and Sidoti & Company.

GLJ Research identifies unique value opportunities across of a broad range of industries and sectors, providing in-depth coverage of companies in fields as diverse as steel, iron ore, electric vehicles, solar energy, lithium ion production, cannabis and much more.

GLJ analysts utilize intelligence from an extensive network of contacts in the United States, China and globally, modeling out company financials along different vectors than analysts that rely on company executives and other traditional sources.

“We’ve wanted to start our own company for years, but didn’t see a way to do it until we discovered Analyst Hub,” said Johnson. “Research is our product, and we needed a strong partner on the business side to handle the launch and help us reach the right clients looking for the unique insights we  provide.”

Offering outsourced infrastructure and organizational support, Analyst Hub is helping top sell-side analysts go into business on their own to provide institutional investors with independent insights and analysis. Built by senior, veteran equity research sales professionals, Analyst Hub’s sales-first orientation sets up analysts for success by helping them secure and service clients, and then scale – reaching a broader audience – as the new firm matures.

“We’re thrilled to help top analysts like Gordon and James go into business for themselves and provide investors with original insights and recommendations that have produced proven results for their clients,” said Mike Kronenberg, Analyst Hub co-founder and CEO. “Focusing on the balance of supply and demand, and what that means for competition in a given space, Gordon and his team have developed a formula to identify opportunities that many others are missing.”
