CRAIG D. SMITH, CFA, MBA
Vice President, Research Analyst
I seek out strong dependable businesses that display an ability to grow organically and drive their earnings higher. I like to find management teams that reinvest the cash generated by their businesses into the business or return it to the shareholders. I have taken this passion and translated it into a career spanning 25 years.
After several years in the investment management industry, I continue to refine my skills as an analyst in the Financial Services and the Health Care sectors, which I’ve been responsible for covering at Granite Investment Advisors since 2010.
My analytical thinking and sharp mathematical skills are an important component to the research team and ultimately our clients.
