About the blog

HZ Connection began as an online “research library” accessible to Hamilton Zanze employees designed to keep them up to date on the goings-on of their respective markets.  However, it quickly became clear that this research would be of far more use if it were accessible to investors and the general public, in addition to employees.  So, here you go.  Read! Get informed! Stay connected!
