Green Circle Capital Grows Investment Banking Coverage of VMS/Nutraceutical Space with Hiring of Bakley Smith, CFA and Publication of New White Paper

New York, NY, Dec 05, 2017 ( via COMTEX) --

Bakley Smith, CFA has joined Green Circle Capital as a Vice President to head up the firm's VMS/Nutraceutical practice. Mr. Smith's first order of business since joining the firm in September was to publish a white paper last week entitled, "Enhancing Enterprise Value of VMS/Nutraceutical Businesses." The paper can be read or downloaded at Prior to joining Green Circle Mr. Smith had been an equity research analyst at Bank of America and then Jefferies & Co. (where he covered food & drug retailers, healthy lifestyle and food & beverages) as well as an entrepreneur.

"We're thrilled to have Bakley join the firm," said Stu Strumwasser, Founder & Managing Director of Green Circle. His skillset and research experience in the natural products space are unique assets for a boutique firm. He is also here because he and I both see the VMS/Nutraceutical space as underserved by middle market investment banks, and the broad industry growth rate is double that of food and beverages. I am very excited to see what he will accomplish and help us build in the next few years."

Mr. Smith is a Chartered Financial Analyst, is a registered representative with StillPoint Capital (the broker dealer that conducts securities transactions for Green Circle) and is a graduate of Wesleyan University.
