Canaccord Genuity Expands Healthcare Investment Banking Capabilities and Nashville Presence

17th January 2017

BOSTON, Jan. 17, 2017 - Canaccord Genuity is pleased to announce the expansion of its U.S. investment banking group with the addition of Duncan Dashiff as Managing Director and Head of Healthcare Services, which includes the firm's Healthcare Information Technology ("HCIT") practice in the U.S.

Mr. Dashiff brings deep industry relationships, solid sector expertise and robust transaction experience, and he will leverage Canaccord Genuity's strong franchise in healthcare investment banking and the firm's existing infrastructure in Nashville.  With this addition to a highly qualified and experienced team, Canaccord Genuity will extend  the firm's strong reputation with more activity and resources in the Healthcare Services and HCIT segments.  Mr. Dashiff will join Dudley Baker, Managing Director and the lead investment banker for HCIT and other members of our Nashville office to deliver a broad range of investment banking services, including public offerings, private placements and financial advisory services for growing healthcare companies.

"I am pleased to welcome Duncan Dashiff, who strongly complements our existing healthcare industry expertise and further demonstrates our commitment to this important sector.  Expanding our Nashville operation as the centerpiece of our Healthcare Services and HCIT practices is an important initiative and investment," said Jeff Barlow, U.S. President for Canaccord Genuity Inc.

"Duncan joins a strong team in Nashville and across our global regions.  Adding a high-quality partner and professional like Duncan is a key milestone in our goal to build one of the most talented teams and well respected franchises focused on Healthcare Services and HCIT in the U.S.," said Dan Coyne, Senior Managing Director and Head of U.S. Investment Banking for Canaccord Genuity.

Duncan Dashiff brings over 20 years of highly relevant experience to his role.  Most recently, Duncan was a Managing Director with MedCare Investment Funds, a firm focused on private equity investing in the healthcare industry.  Prior to joining MedCare, Mr. Dashiff spent seventeen years as a healthcare investment banker advising healthcare companies on multiple fronts with respect to mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and capital markets transactions, including public/private equity, venture capital and senior/subordinated debt financing.  Mr. Dashiff was previously a Managing Director leading Morgan Keegan's Nashville-based Healthcare investment banking team and Co-Head of the Healthcare Corporate & Investment Banking practice of SunTrust Robinson Humphrey.  He has also held positions in the healthcare investment banking departments of Raymond James & Associates, Equitable Securities Corp. and Smith Barney, Inc.   His experience ranges across a variety of healthcare sub-sectors with emphasis on clients in the healthcare services and information technology areas. Duncan holds an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and a B.S. from the University of Alabama.
