Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, Paris – 15 May 2014 – Euronext, a wholly owned subsidiary of IntercontinentalExchange Group (NYSE: ICE), today announced its second pan-European Investor conference in New York aimed at raising the profile of its European listed companies among US investors. The event, which will be attended by over 50 large issuers from across all the Euronext countries and over 200 US investors, will take place over three days from 19th to 21st May 2014.
Sponsored by the New York Stock Exchange and Euronext, and in partnership with FTI Consulting, BNY Mellon and the European American Chamber of Commerce New York, the event allows investors to interact with European CEOs and CFOs and learn more about investment opportunities on the Euronext markets. An innovative multi-broker approach comprising ING, KBC Securities, Millennium BCP and Societe Generale will maximize the interaction between issuers and investors.
The event opens with the European American Economic Forum, during which participants will hear debates led by chief economists from major financial institutions. These will focus on Europe’s response to the financial crisis and the current economic developments in the European market. This will be followed by a discussion by American and European finance officials and industry leaders on the current economic landscape for European businesses. The event will feature a keynote speech by Bertrand Badré, Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer, World Bank Group. His Excellency, João Vale de Almeida, Ambassador of the European Union to the United States, will give a special address.
The second day will commence with the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange and be followed by a programme of one-on-one investor meetings for listed European companies, providing the opportunity to address directly the US investor community.
Dominique Cerutti, CEO of Euronext, said, “Following the success of our first pan-European investor day in 2013, we are continuing the momentum by expanding the event for our European issuers in 2014. Euronext’s markets play a major role in financing companies of all sizes and in every sector. In 2013 companies raised €92 billion on our markets, and the positive trend is accelerating in 2014. This event is just one part of our marketing efforts to connect issuers to investors and it is a powerful way of enabling European issuers to raise their visibility and broaden access across this important investor base.
