Panmure Gordon bolsters Business and Support Services research team

12 November 2018

Panmure Gordon today announces Robert Plant is joining as a Business and Support Services Research Analyst. He will enhance Panmure Gordon’s coverage of the Business and Support Services sector, working alongside Adrian Kearsey and Tom Callan. He is an Executive Director.

Robert has more than 18 years of equity research experience and has been consistently highly ranked in key published analyst surveys, including No.1 in the All-Europe Institutional Investor rankings in recent years, both individually and with his team.

Robert joins Panmure Gordon from Edison Investment Research. He previously worked for 14 years at J.P. Morgan Cazenove (JPMC), latterly as Head of European Business Services Equity Research. At JPMC, Robert led coverage on 25 companies and worked on several IPOs. Before joining JPMC he worked at Exel PLC in a strategy role and at Cazenove as a European Transport Analyst.

Robert is the latest senior appointment at Panmure Gordon as it implements its strategy to support UK growth and mid-cap corporates and investment companies by building long-term relationships and offering equity or debt services in public or private markets.

Robert starts his role at Panmure Gordon later this month.

Alan MacDonald, Head of Equities at Panmure Gordon, said:
“We are pleased to welcome Robert to Panmure Gordon as we continue to bolster our research capabilities. Robert has been a leading analyst in the Business and Support Services sector for some time, as reflected in his consistent high rankings in key analyst surveys. We are confident Robert will be a valuable addition to the team and enhance our coverage of this important sector.”

Panmure Gordon has been growing its research capabilities under CEO Ian Axe’s leadership with recent hires including Bill Dale as Director of Research and Matthew Webb as a Consumer Analyst.
