Sixteen BARRA RogersCasey consultants are forming their own consulting firm. They include: Robin Pellish and Joseph Nankof, managing directors; Roger Feningdorf, head of manager research; Beth DeLalla, head of U.S. equity research; Julie Moore, head of international research; Danielle Muller and David Morton, co-heads of fixed income research; Carla Haugen, head of alternative research; and David Katz, head of client service. The new firm has not yet been named and will be operating soon, said Mr. Katz.
Capital Resource Advisors acquired BARRA RogersCasey for $14 million last week. CRA officials could not be reached for comment by press time.
Separately, Venita Olson, director of research at BARRA RogersCasey, will not join the combined firm of CRA RogersCasey, Ms. Olson said. She is looking for opportunities elsewhere.
