About the Firm

Vertical Research Partners is the preeminent independent equity research and consulting firm focused on the Industrial and Materials sectors, providing high-quality, value-added proprietary investment research services derived from extensive industry knowledge. Vertical Research Partners is free of any conflict of interest from investment banking or proprietary trading and takes great pride in working in a close consultative relationship with its clients.

Founded in 2010 by Jeff Sprague, Vertical Research Partners now fields eight analyst teams covering over 130 stocks across the market capitalization spectrum within the Electrical Equipment & Multi-Industry, Machinery, Engineering & Construction, Global Aerospace & Defense, Surface Transportation, Packaging and Forest Products, Agricultural Products and Chemicals sectors. The Vertical Team has been consistently recognized by Institutional Investor, Greenwich Associates, StarMine and The Wall Street Journal for its analysis and insightful coverage.

The firm was created to capitalize on the competitive dynamics and massive structural and secular changes taking place on Wall Street. Trading electronification, volume and commission pressures and a massive brain drain from the bulge bracket firms have created a unique opportunity for Vertical Research Partners to thrive. Our clients come first at Vertical Research Partners. The firm is a high-performance culture of excellence predicated on quality financial research and industry analysis, collaboration and thought leadership in our respective vertical markets. We are nimble and dynamic, and committed to providing outstanding insights and service to our institutional clients.

The firm is headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut.
