Meet Harmita (Soschi) Sidhu
Harmita (Soschi) K. Sidhu, Municipal Bond Analyst, Research, Seifried & Brew
Soschi Sidhu brings to the Seifried & Brew table over 16+ years of financial services experience, currently focusing on the credit worthiness and rating of municipal bond debt issues for Seifried & Brew's vast client base that holds the respective security or wants to invest into. Soschi's detailed focus from both an analytical standpoint and previous supervisory editing/compliance background help to forge the gap between fair financial reporting, the analysis, and disclosure of the security at hand.
Soschi's career started off in the early '90s at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. in the Equity Research Division assisting in the coverage of rating and writing of company reports of super-regional large-cap bank stocks and continued later on with the additional coverage of small- and mid-cap community banks at Advest, Inc., and Prudential Securities. In early 2001, after a short stint of coverage pre-9/11 in the bond insurance and property-casualty insurance sectors at financial services boutique, Keefe, Bruyette and Woods, Inc. (KBW), she transitioned into a supervisory analyst role during the firm's post-9/11 build-up phase and was instrumental in disclosure reporting within its research department when heightened compliance issues were at the forefront on Wall Street.
Soschi holds a B.S. degree in Business Management from the State University of New York at Old Westbury and has previously held Series 7, 63, and 16 FINRA designations. Soschi currently holds the PA Life, Accidental and Heath Insurance license, is an active swimmer and sits on the Board of the Southern Lehigh Community Pool Association.
