Andy Howard

Andy is the Managing Director of Didas Research, an independent research firm focusing on long term equity investing.  Didas Research applies objective analysis integrating financial, industrial, competitive and stakeholder measures to identify companies well placed to sustain long term earnings growth and equity market outperformance.  As industries and companies change at a faster pace, and on a bigger scale, than ever before, analysing their readiness to adapt – rather than solely the profitability of their current operations – has never been more important.

Previously, Andy spent six years with Goldman Sachs, where he was a Managing Director and responsible for building the GS SUSTAIN global research product.  Andy has also worked with McKinsey in New York where he advised financial institutions and was involved in the firm’s Business in Society work, with Global Witness, a development focused NGO and as a mining analyst with Dresdner Kleinwort Benson and Deutsche Bank, where he was twice voted Europe’s leading analyst in the sector.  Andy earned a BSc (Econ) from the London School of Economics and has an MBA from INSEAD.
