Leading Global Pharma Analysts Joins Premier Research Firm
New York, NY — September 24, 2018 – Wolfe Research, LLC announced today that top ranked Global Pharmaceuticals analyst Tim Anderson, MD, has joined the company as a Managing Director. Dr. Anderson joins Wolfe from Sanford C. Bernstein, LLC, where he was a Managing Director and Senior Equity Research analyst covering both US and European Pharmaceutical Companies for the past 11 years. Dr. Anderson is currently ranked #1 in US Large Cap Pharmaceuticals and has been highly ranked in the US for 15 consecutive years according to Institutional Investor’s All-America Research Poll. He is also currently designated as Runner-Up in the most recent EU Institutional Investor rankings. At Wolfe Research, in addition to the global pharmaceutical companies, Tim’s increased resources afford him the ability to cover several large cap biotechnology stocks with the same insights he’s brought to the Big Pharma space.
Wolfe Research’s Managing Partner Ed Wolfe commented, "Tim is a world class analyst with 20+ years of healthcare investment experience. His background in science and investments, including academic training as a Medical Doctor with an MBA, distinguishes him from his peers. He is also a person with great integrity and a history of building a team deep with industry experience. Combined with Akash Tewari, who joins us from the #1 ranked ISI Biotechnology and Specialty Pharma team to roll out coverage in SMID cap Biotech and Spec Pharma, we believe we will have one of the leading therapeutics research teams on Wall Street. Including Justin Lake’s leading coverage of the Healthcare Services sector, we are well on our way to establishing a dominant healthcare sell-side research franchise; we intend to keep investing further in the space from here with additional hires."
Dr. Anderson noted: "Given the convergence in therapeutic area focus between Global Pharmaceutical companies and large cap Biotechnology companies, it makes sense that we would cover these two sectors together. I will continue to dig deep into the disease areas that matter most, the R&D platforms that will help transform the therapeutics space, and important changes such as pending US healthcare reform. I am very excited to join Wolfe Research, a sell-side firm that is rapidly growing at a time when other firms are frequently contracting, and one that has the resources to invest appropriately in equity research. It is an honor to join the incredibly talented group of analysts and sales people at the company."
Prior to Sanford Bernstein, Tim worked for 10 years at Prudential Equity Group covering Global Pharmaceutical Stocks, and before that, Specialty Pharma/Drug Delivery stocks. He did his medical residency training at Harvard Medical School after receiving both an M.D and M.B.A. from The University of Chicago, and a BS in Biochemistry from The University of California. Tim is a California native.
