AngelMD Adds Institutional Finance Veterans to Team

Veteran Wall Street Bankers Join AngelMD To Make Private Healthcare Investing More Accessible and Institutional-Grade.

AngelMD is expanding its financial operations team with the addition of several talented veteran bankers. Bob Velez is leading the corporate development efforts at AngelMD and has begun to assemble a team to operate as a boutique healthcare investment bank offering proprietary fund and single investment products into the market.

Joining Mr. Velez is Ramsey Jallad, Michael Schmanske and Andrew Malloy.

“From the outset, we knew there was a significant opportunity to build institutional-grade investment offerings in private healthcare. The early stage investing market has traditionally been very analog and amateur. Our physician membership helps to source, evaluate and advise companies; and now they can invest alongside a rapidly growing network of institutional investment partners being assembled and managed by Bob Velez and his team. Simply put, Bob is a force who is ideally suited to leading this important effort.” said Tobin Arthur, CEO AngelMD.

Bob Velez: Mr. Velez is a former U.S. Marine who brings 25 years of brokering and sales experience in the Inter Broker Dealer market at firms including Arian Financial Services, AiX and BGC Partners.
