NEW YORK, July 12, 2017 – Cornerstone Macro, an investment research broker-dealer, announced today that Ed Westlake will join the firm as head of the equity energy team.
Westlake was most recently at Credit Suisse where he worked in several roles for almost 15 years. He started as an equity analyst in the firm’s energy department out of the London office in 2004 and would eventually become head of the European energy team. In his latest role at Credit Suisse, Westlake was named co-head of the Global energy team in 2010 working out of the New York headquarters. In his new role at Cornerstone Macro, Westlake will become a key member of the firm’s highly regarded research group, which includes Nancy Lazar, II’s #2 Wall Street economist; Andy Laperriere and Roberto Perli, ranked #2 by II for Washington research; François Trahan, ranked #1 by II for portfolio strategy and Carter Worth, ranked #1 by II for technical analysis.
“Ed is a key player in the energy space, a fact that has been highlighted to us time and time again by our clients. His differentiated approach to analyzing energy stocks will bring a new dynamic to Cornerstone’s research offering. This is a great addition to our team and everyone here is thrilled that Ed is joining Cornerstone. A number of clients have told us over the years that the addition of coverage in the energy space would create synergies and enhance the firm’s existing offerings. This is a great day for Cornerstone,” said Jason Glazer, COO.
Prior to joining Credit Suisse, Westlake held a number of research roles in the oil and gas industry, most notably at Mobil. He holds a masters degree in Engineering, Economics and Management from Oxford University.
