Strategic Policy Research

Capital Alpha Partners, LLC is an independent research boutique, specializing in the investment implications of government actions.

Founded in 2007, Capital Alpha emanates from the former Prudential Equity Group, LLC (1981- 2007) and its perennially-ranked Washington Research team. 

Owing to this sell-side heritage, we are experienced in and cater to the specifics of the institutional investor community. Indeed, professional backgrounds in both Wall Street research and policymaking strengthen our deep, sector domain knowledge and ability to pinpoint industry pertinence.

Capital Alpha’s eight senior analysts - each averaging over twenty years of professional experience - offer fundamental understanding of industry; detailed evaluation of the political and regulatory landscape; and investor-relevant, expert viewpoints. 

The team likewise works collaboratively to highlight cross-sector themes.

Our goal is to provide context for actionable ideas as well as identify and track policy, regulatory, and budget trends that can impact equities, credits, and broader portfolios.
