"The stock selection and trading research provided by QSG is being leveraged by an increasingly broader spectrum of investors. Though the tool sets of the top equity managers are becoming more and more similar, the ways that they implement them are still very unique," said Tim Sargent, QSG President. "Marty and Dan have hands on experience weaving the best research ideas into an investor's decision process. Their ability to help traditional managers get the most out of our solutions and guide future platform enhancements will be a great asset to our firm."
Dan Skubiz brings more than 15 years of buy-side industry experience managing both fundamental and quantitative based products. Most recently, Dan was a Senior Equity Analyst with St. Louis-based Missouri Valley Partners where he integrated a blend of quantitative screening and rigorous fundamental analysis into his stock selection process. Prior to Missouri Valley Partners, Dan was a portfolio manager and analyst at such firms as Fifth Third Asset Management and Bank of America.
Marty Donnelly has joined QSG after almost a decade of providing institutional equity research to the financial community. As an equity sales person for firms such as Wachovia Securities, Avondale Partners, and most recently Stifel Nicolaus, Marty has worked closely with portfolio mangers and research analysts of mutual funds, investment advisory firms, hedge funds and pension funds to support their investment process.
"The most successful firms in our industry are blending a variety of investment techniques, and we are committed to having the talent and resources to help them tailor our services," said John Joseph, QSG COO. "We routinely customize our research, delivery and integration services; product consultants like Dan and Marty have the experience, insight and integrity to engineer the right solution, regardless of the investor's style or strategy goals."
