Paris, 30 January 2023

Kepler Cheuvreux announces a major new appointment to continue growing the firm and developing its activities, harnessing the group’s strengths: Jean-Pierre ANÉ as Managing Director, Deputy Group General Manager, Head of Business Development, reporting to Grégoire VARENNE, Group General Manager. In his new role, Jean-Pierre will be responsible for identifying and executing new projects aimed at generating growth in businesses in which the company already operates or those with which it is closely connected.

Previously, as Deputy Head of Kepler Cheuvreux Solutions (KCS), Jean-Pierre has been instrumental in creating and developing KCS, alongside Nicolas MIARA-GODET, Founder and Head of KCS. They both leveraged the strength and resources of the firm to make the KCS business line the leading independent European provider of structured products.

Kepler Cheuvreux’s goal, and Jean-Pierre’s new mission, is to leverage all the group’s strengths to develop new businesses and realise new synergies to reinforce the group’s growth momentum and make it stronger in the long term.

In parallel, and independent of these new responsibilities, Jean-Pierre will continue to be heavily involved in the ongoing development of Kepler Cheuvreux Solutions.

In addition to Jean-Pierre’s appointment, Kepler Cheuvreux is continuing to develop its footprint through some strategic hires for its Execution activity (KCX), with the development of its London, New York, and Milan desks. It is also growing through the ongoing development of Kepler Cheuvreux Solutions, the Fixed Income and Credit Business line, developing Distressed High Yield & Special Situations, and Credit Emerging Markets activities, and its Asset Management activities with KC Invest and Ellipsis AM.
