TownHall Research and ABI Research Form Partnership

Oyster Bay, New York - 09 Mar 2012

​ABI Research and TownHall Investment Research are pleased to announce a new venture between the two companies. TownHall will now be exclusively utilizing ABI Research’s industry-leading market research as the backdrop for its own investment research, which it provides to the institutional investment community. Both firms have well-established credentials in the mobile/wireless worlds, which will be the primary investment focus of the new effort.

Tim Archdeacon, president and CEO, ABI Research, indicates, “We are excited about teaming up with TownHall to bring our research product to the US investment community in a way that best leverages our core competency as a leading industry consultant and TownHall’s extensive experience in using this type of research for investment purposes. We believe Jamie Townsend, as the president of TownHall, brings a unique blend of talent and experience to this effort. Jamie, as former president and CEO of SoundView Financial Group, pioneered the research model using consultant research as the base for high quality and differentiated investment research.”

“As a longtime proponent of utilizing consultant research for investment purposes, I am thrilled to be teaming up with ABI Research. Through its over 20 years as an independent market research firm, ABI Research has established itself as a ‘best of breed’ research provider,” says Townsend. “While I believe that TownHall has already established itself as a trusted and valued added source of investment research in the wireless and mobile markets over the last four years, I expect TownHall, with ABI’s support, to achieve a new level of investment research quality.”
