As Hovde has continued to look to build out its team, we are excited about Brendan joining and are confident he is the perfect fit to continue to expand our capabilities and coverage universe," commented Brett Rabatin, Head of Equity Research.

Nosal added, "Joining Hovde provides me with the opportunity to continue providing investors differentiated bank research given the great brand and market recognition. I am particularly excited to work as a team with Brett, Dave, Nick, Erik, and the rest of the team."


Griffith will join Head of Capital Markets Michael Hedrei and the Institutional Sales team where he will provide sales coverage to bank specific and generalist institutional investors. Griffith will be based in New Jersey and has worked in Equity Sales for over 20 years, most recently with Compass Point Research & Trading, LLC.

Michael Hedrei stated, "as our abilities as a firm continues to grow, our need for deeper penetration of relationships with institutional investors became obvious, and we are delighted to add someone of the impressive skill set and talent level of Ashley Griffith to our sales platform."
