Macquarie Securities is pleased to announce the appointment of Marc Kofler to its European Oil research team based in London, effective immediately. He joins Macquarie from Citigroup where he was an Integrated and Exploration & Production analyst.
Mr Kofler joins a team of six professionals who between them will cover 31 European oil stocks. Reporting to Jason Gammel, Head of the Oil Research team in Europe, he will support Jason in specific coverage of integrated oil stocks. He will also work alongside Mark Wilson, lead coverage for E&P stocks, and other team members to provide a full spectrum of energy research to an institutional client base
Julian Wentzel, Head of European Research, said: “This is a priority sector for Macquarie given our global expertise in the energy and petroleum space. Marc has established a sound reputation amongst institutional clients in the five years he’s covered the Oil & Gas industry, and we’re delighted to welcome him to Macquarie.”
Macquarie’s expertise in the energy sector resonates throughout its client offering. In addition to being the largest broker to AIM listed Oil & Gas companies by market cap, Macquarie’s Equity Capital Markets (ECM) team have completed three oil and gas financings on the London market in as many months for energy companies Aurelian, San Leon and Max Petroleum.
