RELATED TOPICS​

Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking and Japaninvest Group have formed a trading and research alliance to provide co-branded Asian equity research to institutional clients on a global basis. 

Societe Generale’s economic and macro coverage on all asset classes will be complemented by Japaninvest’s in-depth Japan company research and its growing Asian coverage in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea. 
 
As part of the agreement Societe Generale will distribute Japaninvest’s research via its worldwide distribution platform.

The joint venture will offer coverage representing 25 per cent of global market capitalisation and will combine independent bottom-up analysis with a global execution platform for high touch, electronic services (25 markets in Asia), ETFs as well as the whole range of derivative services.
 
David Escoffier, global head of equities and flow derivatives, Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking, says: “We are very pleased to be partnering with Japaninvest, which is well known for its in-depth and high quality research product. This addition will substantially broaden our client offering and provide us with powerful new synergies in Asia and worldwide.”  

Rupert Eastwood (pictured), chief executive of Japaninvest, adds: “This is a unique opportunity for Japaninvest to partner with a world leader in equity derivatives that has strong ambitions in the Asian Equity flow market. We are excited that clients will be able to access the full spectrum of Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking’s Equity solutions in cash, derivatives and listed products, combined with state of the art execution across 25 Asian exchanges. This will provide our clients with a dramatically enhanced product offering.”
