East Daley Capital Advisors Inc. on July 28 said Ethan Bellamy has joined the provider of midstream energy asset-level data and analysis to lead the firm’s midstream energy market strategy.

Bellamy brings over 15 years of experience in midstream equity research. He joins East Daley from Baird, where he was most recently worked as a senior equity analyst covering energy infrastructure. Prior to Baird, he was the director of research for the Lehman Brothers MLP Opportunity Fund.

Having worked on the buy side, sell side, and in private equity, Bellamy brings a deep experience in midstream investing and analytics, according to Jim Simpson, CEO and cofounder of East Daley Capital.

“We’re pleased to expand our leadership team as we continue to grow our research and consulting practice in the North American midstream energy market,” Simpson said in a statement.

At East Daley, Bellamy will work in his newly formed role as managing director of midstream strategy to expand the company’s advisory capabilities, subscription services, marketing efforts, media relations and content development.

“As COVID-19 and commodity price turmoil create market volatility, a concise, comprehensive and bottoms-up understanding of asset level economics has never been more important in capital deployment,” Bellamy said in a statement.

“I’m excited to show midstream professionals how East Daley’s tools can help improve risk-adjusted returns,” he added.
