Very encouraging rankings for Kepler Cheuvreux in this year’s Extel survey

Paris, 8th June 2016

The 2016 Extel rankings were published on Wednesday, 8th June. Each year Extel polls global institutional investors for their feedback on equity brokerage services in European equities. We are pleased to report that our differentiated multi-local model and our investments in our Research product are reflected in our strongly improved rankings. We are particularly gratified by our jump of three places to 7th place in the headline ranking: Leading Pan-European House: we feel that this broad ranking which encapsulates all voting categories (Research, Sales, Countries, Corporate Access etc) is the ranking which best fits with our DNA as a multi-local broker. Our position as the leading independent broker in Europe is once again validated.

Other headlines:

  • Within Equity Sectors, we show improvements in ranking in 20 sectors. We have 10 Equity Sectors ranked Top 10 and 3 Equity Sectors ranked Top 5. Examples of strong improvements include Utilities: 5th (9th), Software & IT 4th (5th) and MedTech & Services 6th (8th).
  • Once again we rank number one for Countries in Europe and again we have increased the gap to the second broker which has less than half our votes. Our Swiss and Spanish teams both moved up from 5th to 3rd rank in the Leading Country Broker category. We rank 3rd (unchanged) in France and Germany and 4th (unchanged) in Italy.
  • Quoted Companies rank us 5th (9th) for our Research. It is particularly impressive that we have 15 sectors ranked Top 5 in this category.
  • We are again ranked number one in Europe for Leading Pan-European Firm for Equity and Equity linked Sales.
  • We score a very creditable 5th in Equity and Equity-linked Trading & Execution.
  • Once again, we are the undisputed leader in Small & Mid cap in Europe. This leadership position correlates very nicely with our market-leading cross rates in Small & Mid cap trading.
  • In ‘Company & Expert Meetings’ our headline rankings are unchanged i.e. 1st with Corporates and 3rdwith Investors.
