Mizuho Americas hired Daniel Boyd as managing director and senior equity research analyst based in Houston, the firm said in a Sept. 1 release.

Boyd joins Mizuho from BMO Capital Markets, where he most recently served as managing director, global integrated oil and oilfield service research analyst. Prior to BMO, his 20-year career includes working at Blue Arrow Capital, a platform company of Millennium Partners, and serving as an analyst in the equity research department of Goldman Sachs, among others, according to the firm’s release.

“Dan has earned a reputation for insightful research that is thematic and actionable, based on detailed analysis at the macro level with meticulous modeling,” said Susan Gilbertson, Mizuho Americas’ head of U.S. equity research who Boyd will report to, in a statement. “Combined with the strong management relationships he has formed, he will further strengthen our energy equity offerings.”

Based in Houston, Boyd’s coverage at Mizuho Americas will include large-cap integrated oil companies, E&P companies, oilfield services companies and alternative energy companies. He joins the firm’s existing energy team members, Silvio Micheloto and Vincent Lovaglio, who will continue to cover integrated oil companies, refiners and small and mid- cap E&P companies respectively.
