“We are very pleased to welcome Moshe to the firm,” stated Mr. Linde. “Moshe’s product represents the type of high-quality and value-added research that we are committed to delivering to our institutional client base. I am confident that his research will have an immediate impact for Sterne Agee CRT.”
