Our Firm

Firm Overview & History

Founded by a Goldman Sachs research team in 2019, MarketDesk Research was built to offer independent investment research and market insights to wealth advisors and institutional investors. Our clients include RIAs, family offices, institutional investors, hedge funds, mutual funds, wirehouses, and OCIOs.

Our approach to research and portfolio strategy is centered around evidence-based investing. Instead of basing decisions on near-term trends or “expert” opinions, our team focuses on historical data, leading indicators, and statistical probabilities to guide core asset allocation ratings and idea generation.  This quantitative overlay rewards facts, not opinions, and allows MarketDesk Research to simplify an often complicated market narrative and provide actionable ideas.

Our solutions include core asset allocation research (equities, credit, economics, and international markets), tactical ideas (industries, themes, regions), model portfolios (quantitatively managed strategies), and white label insights (client communication and marketing).
