Extel survey results confirm Kepler Cheuvreux’s status as Europe’s Leading Local Broker

Paris, 10th June, 2013

The Thomson Extel survey results have been released today, 10th June 2013. The results are a strong confirmation of Kepler Cheuvreux’s status as Europe’s leading local broker. To have ranked 1st for Countries and to have ranked Top 10 for nine equity sectors is a very positive validation of the rationale for the merger of Kepler and Cheuvreux. Corporates have also shown their appreciation for new broker by ranking it number one for SmartConnect. The combination of the two brokers has created an equity power-house which ranks shoulder to shoulder with the Global brokers.

The results are all the more remarkable given that the survey was taking place during a period where the two companies were not yet even formally merged. The combined Kepler Cheuvreux rankings are stronger in nearly every case than the previous standalone rankings for CA Cheuvreux and Kepler. It is very gratifying to see that there are now nine research Sectors ranked in the Top 10 versus previously 3 for CA Cheuvreux and 3 for Kepler. Furthermore, the top rankings achieved by ESG, Equity Strategy, Small & Mid caps and SmartConnect confirm Kepler Cheuvreux’s strong franchise.
