Managing member

Adam B. Cohen

Adam graduated from the University of Florida in 1993 and from Georgetown University Law School cum laude in 1997, having been elected to the Georgetown Law Journal. Prior to founding Covenant Review, he was a corporate finance attorney with Latham & Watkins and an investment banker with Lehman Brothers. At Latham, he represented both investment banks and sponsor-backed issuers on dozens of high yield debt and equity offerings. His aerospace and technology financing projects include debt and equity offerings and M&A for American Mobile Satellite Corp, Asia Global Crossing, China Unicom, and XM Satellite Radio. Prior to his Wall Street career, Adam worked for Lieutenant General Charles Dyke on various aerospace and defense consulting projects.

Adam founded Covenant Review in 2005 as the world's first boutique research firm focused on corporate bond covenants in order to provide institutional investors with perspectives on their rights as bondholders as seen through the eyes of experienced practicing lawyers. He was one of seven contributors to the American Bar Association's Model Negotiated Covenants Project (the model high yield covenants) and is part of the Credit Roundtable where he was instrumental in the development of the "White Paper" for model covenants for the investment grade universe. Adam has been quoted and/or published in publications such as Barron's, Bloomberg, Business Week, Financial Times, International Financial Law Review, and The Wall Street Journal. He also co-authored two chapters in Frank Fabozzi’s Handbook of Fixed Income Securities, Eighth Edition. He regularly lectured on covenant issues to investment professionals and other attorneys, and has been cited by the Delaware Chancery Court on indenture matters. He is widely considered to be the leading commentator on corporate bond and loan covenants. Adam also founded Fulcrum Financial Data, which is the holding company for four companies including Covenant Review, CapitalStructure, LevFinInsights, and PacerMonitor.  In July 2018 Fulcrum Financial became a subsidiary of Fitch (a Hearst business), whereupon Adam became retired-ish.

Adam's research and advice has been used by thousands on the buyside and sellside, and he enjoys an extensive network of contacts at over 400 investment advisors, banks, and law firms.

Adam has traveled to 60 countries, and enjoys motorcycling, skiing, and a good mosh pit.
