As we prepare for the holidays, I take a moment to introduce the 31st, and final 2014, edition of Hybrid Vigor. We will not be publishing next week, as virtually the entire staff at Hillside Advisors will be enjoying the season with our families.
We will be back with our first issue of 2015 on Monday, January 5th. In 2015 we look forward to continuing to serve as the voice of the convertible market, delivering proprietary analysis and commentary to help experienced and new market participants. We hope to supplement our convertible coverage next year with ongoing insights about the two asset classes most closely linked to the converts market—high-yield bonds and small-cap stocks.
As we’ve mentioned in recent issues, we are going to a subscription-based model next month. We haven’t determined logistically yet whether today’s issue or the January 5th one will be the final Hybrid Vigor to go to non-paying readers, but either way, the day of reckoning is near. We hope those of you who have enjoyed Hybrid Vigor and have not yet subscribed will speak with John Anderson, our head of business development, at email@example.com or (646) 665-4025 to discuss options.
Starting Hillside Advisors and Hybrid Vigor this year has been one of the great experiences of my life. Building an exceptionally talented and magnanimous team of colleagues, receiving feedback from readers (many old friends), and getting recognition in the media—all part of the unique process of starting a new business. I’m happy to say that 2014 has exceeded our expectations. We look forward to broadening our client base and range of services in 2015. Thanks, and happy holidays, to all of you.
