RoseChief Executive Officer

Simon Rose is Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Rose & Company. Drawing from his 25-year tenure on Wall Street, Rose recognized a pivotal shift in the capital markets and a misalignment of interests within traditional corporate access, uncovering a growing need to modernize investor relations methods. Since its inception in 2015, Rose & Company addresses this gap with a forward-thinking approach to investor engagement and acquisition, leveraging the collective experience and broad relationships within the investment community of seasoned professionals, all handpicked by Rose. The firm aligns its interests with those of our clients, focusing on creating long-term value by identifying, engaging, and building relationships with high-quality, long-term investors. Rose believes in deeply understanding and prioritizing client needs as the foundation of business success. This philosophy, coupled with his passion for building businesses, has guided his ventures, driving innovation in the financial services industry to respond to market demands for nearly three decades.

Simon Rose has been a consistent innovator in the financial sector, notably in 2004 when co-founding Dahlman Rose & Company where he served as Chief Executive Officer. Under his leadership, he led the firm to recognition as a top-20 U.S. investment bank and grew the company from a two-person business to a team of over 200 professionals in just seven years. Additionally, the firm expanded its research coverage from a single sector to over 20 industries. Rose’s strategy, which promoted collaborative and horizontally integrated research practices, has set industry standards. During his tenure, Dahlman Rose & Company successfully executed over 100 securities offerings for both public and private companies, raising $10 billion in capital for its clients, and played a pivotal role as the sole advisor or co-advisor in numerous high-profile M&A transactions, including the largest public company acquisition in the marine transportation sector’s history. The firm was subsequently acquired by Cowen & Company (now part of TD Securities) in April 2013.
