Company to provide institutional-quality research to help corporate issuers raise awareness

TORONTO, May 14, 2020  – LodeRock Advisors, Canada’s leading capital markets communication firm, today announced the launch of LodeRock Research, a new venture that will provide institutional-quality equity research of small- and mid-cap public companies. Technology and regulatory trends have resulted in a substantial decline in equity research, and LodeRock Research is focused on filling the void – helping companies improve visibility and enabling investors to discover new investment ideas from a trusted source.

LodeRock Research is led by Greg MacDonald, CFA, a veteran of Bay Street with more than 25 years of experience as an award-winning equity analyst covering U.S. and Canadian stocks in New York and Toronto. During his career on the sell side, Greg covered various sectors, including telecom, media and technology companies.

Greg was TopGunSM ranked by Brendan Wood for multiple years; ranked top three in sector stock picking by Starmine for five of the last ten years he wrote active coverage; and ranked the #1 overall large-cap stock picker in Canada in 2006. From 2012 to 2019, Greg was the Canadian Head of Research for an international investment dealer, where the team achieved a significant improvement in their Brendan Wood rankings.
