NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., a unit of Oppenheimer Holdings (NYSE: OPY), held its eighth annual Industrial Growth Summit in New York on May 14 and 15, 2013. The conference featured 66 leading public companies from seven industrial sectors, providing a forum for institutional clients to receive cutting-edge updates on both the broad and specific trends in the space.
Oppenheimer Research Analysts who cover the sectors represented at the summit served as hosts. Jim Giannakouros, CFA, Executive Director and Senior Analyst, headed the Sustainable Infrastructure and Industrial sector. Christopher Glynn, Managing Director and Senior Analyst, covered the Industrial Multi-Industry sector, while Yair Reiner, Executive Director and Senior Analyst for Aerospace & Defense Electronics, hosted these companies. Scott A. Schneeberger, CFA, Managing Director and Senior Analyst, represented the Business Services industrial sector. Ian A. Zaffino, CFA, Managing Director and Senior Analyst, led the Generalist Industrial segment. He noted “robust interest in the companies he follows, which frequently do not get the coverage they deserve from Wall Street analysts.”
“Consensus from the multi-industrial companies participating in the conference generally painted an overall picture of demand stability. The multi-industrial sector is very diverse, and normal seasonal patterns are playing out, indicating a constructive operating environment,” said Christopher Glynn. “That said, we do see a slow growth economy, where private economy decision-making lacks the animal spirits that a more constructive policy agenda could facilitate.”
Oppenheimer’s next conference will be its 13th Annual Consumer Conference, which will be held on June 25-26 in Boston, MA. The Firm’s 16th Annual conference on Technology, Internet and Communications and its 24th Annual Healthcare conference will be held in August and December, respectively. These meetings provide important opportunities for institutional investor, venture capital and private equity firms to meet with a variety of companies.
Conferences are only open to established institutional clients of Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. For more information, please contact your Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. institutional sales representative.
