SSR LLC ANNOUNCEMENT
GRAYSON ANDERSEN JOINS AS HEAD OF ENERGY RESEARCH
Stamford, September 22, 2014 – SSR LLC (SSR) is pleased to announce that Grayson Andersen joins this week to lead our efforts in Energy Research. Grayson brings 16 years of experience in the energy space, in Canada and Europe and has a very broad sector coverage history. Grayson has been developing a research product on his own since the beginning of this year and was most recently at Macquarie in the UK as a sector specialist in the Energy space. Grayson was a sector specialist at Simmons & Co. before Macquarie, and prior to that was Manager of Investor Relations for a Canadian energy company. Grayson began his career at KPMG in the Oil and Gas Assurance practice. Grayson is based in the UK and will cover the sector globally.
“Grayson brings a wealth of relevant and important experience to SSR”, said Managing Partner, Graham Copley. “He has a deep understanding of what matters in the energy space and is well known to a large number of investment managers across Europe and in North America”. “This is a sector we have been looking to cover at SSR for a couple of years and have been waiting patiently for the right person”, said Copley. “Grayson approaches the subject from a different perspective than the main stream analysts in that he looks for opportunities rather than focusing on covering the usual suspects. At SSR we strive to be different and we will be different in Energy”.
“This is a very exciting opportunity for me”, said Andersen. “I have always felt that my job is to make money for my clients. That is what I was able to do in my prior roles, and with the ability to cover a very broad space, but with the freedom to focus at any given time only where I see opportunity, I look forward to continuing to do so at SSR.”
SSR is an independent research provider focused on uncovering the major themes and issues that impact broad segments of the economy and identifying investment opportunities at both the sector and stock level. With Grayson’s addition SSR will cover all of the major industrial segments of the market (effectively 95% of the S&P 500). Our analysts have all had significant success at other firms and in most cases attained top public rankings. Many (including Grayson) have industry experience and/or experience on the money management side of the business. We have sales distribution across the US and have recently expanded into London.
