Top-Ranked Sell-Side Analyst Starts Own Firm on New Independent Research Platform


Former Wells Fargo Chemicals Analyst Frank Mitsch Partners with
Analyst Hub

Analyst Hub, an independent research infrastructure platform company
that provides talented sell-side analysts a path to owning their own
enterprise, today announced that Frank Mitsch – 2017 Institutional
Investor Ranked in the chemicals space – has partnered with the firm.

"We are very proud to announce that Frank has partnered with Analyst Hub
to launch his own business," said Mike Kronenberg, CEO of Analyst
Hub. "He recognizes that commercial sell-side research appears to
be moving toward a more cost efficient, free agent model and away
from the big bank trading format."

"Analyst Hub offers a terrific platform for senior analysts like me
to build a subscription research business," said Mitsch. "This new model
frees up capital by leveraging the compliance, technology tools and
distribution of research in a much more efficient way than bigger
institutions ever could."

Analyst Hub offers outsourced infrastructure and organizational support
to facilitate the publishing and distribution of sell-side
research. Additionally, it handles all of the middle and back office,
provides experienced institutional sales and corporate access support to
both originate and execute on non-deal road shows, small conferences and
other high value corporate marketing.

"Our solution couldn't be more timely since MiFID has
changed the buyers' mindset to monitor what research resources they
consume and to put a price on each of them," said Kronenberg. "What we
offer analysts is a true ‘infrastructure as a service' platform and we
look forward to continuing to scale with high quality content
and to focus on building proprietary technology so we can offer more
modern distribution options for our affiliated analyst teams."

Before launching his own business on Analyst Hub, Mitsch was a managing
director and senior analyst with Wells Fargo covering the commodity,
specialty and agricultural chemicals sectors. Previous to that, he was
with BB&T Capital Markets and has covered the chemicals space for more
than 22 years. Mitsch began his career with international management
consulting firm Kline & Company where he was a chemicals consultant,
working in both the U.S. and Europe.
