Andy founded Didas Research in 2013, focusing on long term investing across global equity markets (www.didasresearch.com). Taking advantage of the opportunities longer time horizons offer requires new ways of approaching research, with a greater emphasis on the underlying drivers of financial performance rather than a myopic focus on current profitability. Our research identifies, examines, quantifies and measures the key elements of companies’ business models. We integrate financial, industrial and stakeholder measures to assess companies’ long term growth prospects.
Previously, Andy spent six years with Goldman Sachs, where he was a Managing Director and responsible for building the GS SUSTAIN global research product. Andy has also worked with McKinsey in New York where he advised financial institutions and was involved in the firm’s Business in Society work, with Global Witness a development focused NGO and as a mining analyst with Dresdner and Deutsche Bank, where he was twice voted Europe’s leading analyst in the sector. Andy earned a BSc (Econ) from the London School of Economics and has an MBA from INSEAD.
