Rosenblatt, SinoPac Announce Exclusive Pact to Bring Taiwanese Research to US Investors

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

New York, NY, and Taipei, Taiwan, June 24, 2015. Rosenblatt Securities, one of North America’s leading boutique brokerage firms, and SinoPac Securities, the investment banking and brokerage arm of SinoPac Holdings, ranking among Taiwan’s largest financial services groups, are pleased to announce they have signed an exclusive arrangement to bring Greater China research, corporate access, trading and banking services to major institutional investors in the US. 
 
“This collaboration agreement is consistent with SinoPac’s broader strategy of developing further business opportunities for clients abroad, particularly in the US, and is another major step in expanding our international product offering and capabilities,” said Jerry Jiang, Senior Executive Vice President and Head of the Institutional Business Group of SinoPac Securities. “Rosenblatt was a logical choice for a partner given its reputation among institutional investors, focus on distributing best­‐of­‐breed foreign market research, and its No. 1 ranking on the floor of the NYSE, where a handful of major Taiwanese companies, such as Taiwan Semiconductor, have listed ADRs.” 

“The opportunity to work with one of the preeminent firms in Taiwan is an honor, an exciting commercial prospect and greatly enhances our international strategy,” added Joe Gawronski, President and COO at Rosenblatt. “We couldn’t have selected a better partner in SinoPac for our first foray into Asia-­Pac. More deals in the region will follow soon to bring additional best­‐in­‐class differentiated research and capital markets transactions to US institutions.” 

Rosenblatt’s foreign-­research chaperoning efforts originally focused on leading African and Middle Eastern brokers, such as Attijari Intermediation in Morocco, CardinalStone Partners in Nigeria, Global Investment House in Kuwait and Old Mutual Securities in Kenya. With the addition of SinoPac’s coverage, between Rosenblatt’s proprietary research and that of its chaperoning partners, Rosenblatt clients now have access to dozens of analysts in sixteen developed, emerging and frontier markets covering nearly 500 companies. 

Evan Morgan, Managing Director and Head of Research Sales at Rosenblatt, said: “The breadth and depth of this coverage reflects the continuing evolution of Rosenblatt from a trusted execution-­only broker to leading market structure and execution-­analytics experts and, more recently, a source of differentiated, valuable investment research. And with technology companies comprising more than 70% of Taiwan’s market capitalization, adding SinoPac’s research complements our existing coverage of technology, media and telecom in the US and China. Specifically, it deepens our expertise in real-­time tracking of the Asia supply chain, which is key to our reputation for spotting trends and picking winners and losers in the technology sector.” 

“We have a strong history in Taiwan, with decades of experience and business success and have also had a presence for more than fifteen years in Europe through our UK office,” said Cecilia Liu, Managing Director at SinoPac responsible for international sales. “We have yet to bring our leading research, corporate access and capital markets transactions to the States. We believe that teaming up with Rosenblatt will allow us to capitalize on their access to the largest pool of investment assets globally and to take our joint business to a market-leading position.”
