David P. Stowell Bio

David P. Stowell is a professor of finance at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, where he teaches classes that focus on investment banking, hedge funds and private equity. He also teaches undergraduate courses on these topics at Northwestern University, University of Utah and Utah State University.

Prior to joining Northwestern in 2005, he was a managing director at JP Morgan, working in Chicago with responsibility for part of the firm’s mid-west investment banking business. In addition, he worked in investment banking at UBS as managing director and co-head of U.S. equity capital markets, and at Goldman Sachs, where he managed an equity derivatives business in New York and worked in corporate finance and M&A in Tokyo.  He was also a managing director at O’Connor Partners, a large hedge fund based in Chicago.

Stowell left Goldman Sachs in 1993 to work for O’Connor Partners, where he developed new hedge fund products which were directed to corporations interested in fund raising and risk management. O’Connor Partners was subsequently sold to UBS, where he focused on equity capital markets and equity derivatives activities before finishing his investment banking career at JP Morgan.

He graduated from Utah State University with a BA in Economics and from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business with an MBA in Finance.  In addition to his current teaching responsibilities, he manages Paradigm Partners, a boutique investment bank that provides M&A and capital raising services and general advice on investment banking, hedge fund and private equity activities to selected clients.
