That is a fantastic list, thank you. What software or service did you use to run that screen?

Off tread, but since you are at it, could you look up PE / VC funds?

Thanks!

In theory there's no difference between theory and practice; in practice there is

The list is diversified financials-it includes some banks (Craig-Hallum) and PE/mezz (Pine River, Wayzata) funds in there.

List is CapitalIQ.

Whitebox and Blackriver (Cargill) are the best funds in that list. Pine River was recently profiled in Bloomberg magazine as a top performer in 2010. Really interesting back story on the founder. I couldn't find the specific article but this is somewhat interesting:

Look into Wayzata. They are a well known distressed debt fund based in Minneapolis.

Also Norwest, they are a Wells Fargo backed fund based in Minneapolis as well.

Most of the buyside people I know in Minneapolis (from MN originally) cut their teeth elsewhere (often NY or Chicago) and like buyside people everywhere started on the sellside.

There are a few different banks with research arms in Minneapolis (RBC springs to mind) and those are probably your best bet.

There are also a decent number of buyside firms (in addition to what was mentioned above):
TPG Credit
Whitebox
Several mutual fund companies as well
