Cain Brothers Investment Bankers to the Healthcare Industry

Our Team



Co-Founder, New York

Dan is a nationally recognized leader in the healthcare finance field. Before founding Cain Brothers in 1982, Dan was Manager of the Health Care Group at Salomon Brothers (1980-82) and a Senior Vice President with Blyth Eastman Dillon (1975-80). He was in the real estate finance department of Merrill Lynch prior to that.

Dan left Salomon Brothers to start Cain Brothers, recognizing the unique regulatory and technology challenges confronting voluntary and investor-owned healthcare providers. Industry specialization permits a singular approach to capital financing and corporate development not easily addressed by diversified financial institutions.

Dan is a member of Cain Brothers' Executive Committee. He is a frequent speaker at industry and academic conferences and an author of publications including Capital Finance, an Aspen publication describing the process of healthcare capital formation.

Dan grew up in Holyoke, Massachusetts and is a graduate of Brown University with a degree in American Civilization. He also has a MBA from the Columbia Business School. Dan is an independent trustee of NATIXIS/Loomis Sayles. He is also a trustee of American Heart Association, executive board member of Hancock Shaker Village, and an overseer of Columbia Business School.
