Swedbank and Kepler Cheuvreux partnership
In June 2017, Swedbank invested in a strategic partnership with Kepler Cheuvreux in order to provide our clients with significantly broader research coverage of Nordic stocks, enhanced ECM distribution and a significantly improved execution offering. Our retail and institutional clients will benefit from Kepler Cheuvreux coverage provided by more than 100 equity analysts; the long-term goal is to provide coverage of approximately 970 European companies, of which 300 are Nordic. Our corporate clients will gain access to superior ECM distribution capacity through Kepler Cheuvreux’s network of 1,350 institutional investors globally. We are now also able to offer better roadshow capabilities and a global trading platform with fully MiFID-compliant execution.
Kepler Cheuvreux’s Norwegian Equity Sales, Equity Research and Corporate Access teams are now working together with Swedbank in co-located offices in Oslo. Henning C. Steffenrud has joined Kepler Cheuvreux and is now Nordic Head of Research.
Swedbank’s equity offering in Norway is aimed at family offices and high net-worth individuals, supported by our newly established Cross-Asset Sales Desk. This desk has a close cooperation with our partner Kepler Cheuvreux, which provides in-depth analysis and research for 300 Nordic companies and an additional 670 pan-European companies. This research is fully integrated with our high-yield research and sales team, who are able to offer you investment opportunities suitable for your needs and risk levels. For more information on this offering, please contact our Head of DCM Advisory Services in Oslo, Tomas Eriksson.
