New York, NY – Renaissance Macro Research (“RenMac”) is pleased to announce that Steve Hash has joined the firm as President and Chief Operating Officer. Steve comes to RenMac after almost twenty years with Barclays Capital and Lehman Brothers. Steve was the Director of Global Equity Research at Lehman Brothers and Director of U.S. Equity Research for seven years. He was instrumental in moving the firm to #1 in the Institutional Investor All-American equity research survey in 2003, from #9 in 1999. Most recently he served as the Global Head of Real Estate Investment Banking and the Chief Operating Officer of the Global Investment Banking division at Barclays Capital.

Steve was ranked as a top analyst in the Institutional Investor All-American equity research survey and the Greenwich Associates Survey for multiple years during his tenure at Lehman Brothers. He began his career as a senior research analyst covering the REIT industry at Oppenheimer & Company, and as a senior auditor for the accounting and consulting firm of Arthur Andersen & Company. He received a Bachelor’s Degree from Loyola University, and an MBA from New York University.

In his new role, Steve will be responsible for running the company on a day to day basis as RenMac continues to execute its strategy of building an unparalleled macro based research boutique firm. This year, RenMac has added five additional sales professionals as well as Washington policy and Economics research teams. The firm’s growth plans call for two additional research teams, a significant expansion in the sales force and acquiring a broker dealer license to accommodate clients who prefer to trade directly with the company.

RenMac’s Chairman, Jeff deGraaf, stated “Steve is one of the best managers and executioners of a business plan I’ve seen in my tenure on Wall Street. His knowledge of the sell-side research business and his expertise in delivering value-added research to the buy-side is unequaled. His addition allows me to focus less on the logistics of running a business and more on thought provoking, high-quality research clients have come to expect from RenMac.”
