Washington Analysis, LLC (WA) …
…is a top-rated independent institutional research boutique focused on anticipating and analyzing changes in public policy that will impact the financial markets. The firm’s expertise lies in assessing investment risks and opportunities emanating from developments on the political front, as well as those stemming from legislative, judicial and regulatory initiatives.
WA strives to be predictive in separating headline risk from policy changes that have a more pervasive and lasting investment impact. We also keep an eye towards identifying the non-consensus view and look to correct widely held misperceptions whenever possible.
Founded in 1973, current personnel at WA still include some of the firm’s original partners. This stability among the research staff is complemented by a unique institutional expertise in our niche coverage areas, with many WA professionals possessing relevant career experience on both Capitol Hill and Wall Street. Additionally the firm is located in downtown Washington, DC, allowing us to stay ahead of rapidly changing economic, legislative and regulatory issues.
The Washington Analysis macro and sector teams bring a singular blend of political and financial career experience to bear on the investment decision-making process facing our clients daily. With this valuable dual perspective, we understand both our field of expertise and the needs of our professional investment management clients. WA is therefore uniquely able to assist clients in identifying the changes coming out of Washington that will impact the movement of stocks and credit instruments.
