St. Lawrence News


Jonathan Biele '92 has been named one of the "top 40 investment bankers under 40" by Investment Dealers Digest. Biele is head of Cowen and Company's capital markets group.

The "40 under 40" article states that Biele "has raised more than $100 billion in more than 250 transactions during his career. Before Cowen, Biele was head of equity capital markets at Lazard and a managing director in the firm's life science banking group, and was part of the equity syndicate and equity capital markets groups at Lehman Brothers. He was also a vice president and syndicate manager at ABN Amro Rothschild. Some of his most recent Lazard deals include acting as co-manager for the IPO of Synta Pharmaceuticals, which raised $50 million, and the $75.2 million IPO of Xtent. Biele was also co-manager of newspaper publisher GateHouse Media's $285.7 million IPO in October 2006. It was Biele who, while at Lehman, priced the first legitimate IPO following 9/11. He was the bookrunner and lead manager on Israeli gastrointestinal imaging developer Given Imaging's Oct. 3, 2001 IPO, which raised $60 million."

Biele earned his St. Lawrence degree in history, and has been a very active volunteer for the University, particularly in fund-raising and for Reunions.
