Who are the CAC 40 and SBF 120 shareholders?


Discover who are the shareholders of France’s benchmark CAC 40® and SBF 120® indices

At the 12thEuronext Annual Conference on 19 March 2024, Euronext presented the latest edition of its study looking at trends among the direct shareholders of the companies that make up the CAC 40® and SBF 120® indices. These major French indices cover approximately 90% of market capitalisation in France.

The Euronext study analyses the shareholders of companies included in the CAC 40 and SBF 120 indices as recorded at the end of each year from end 2012 to year-end 2022.

The report draws from both public data published by listed companies, and data made available to Euronext from the Factset and Morningstar databases. It successfully identifies approximately 68% of CAC 40 and SBF 120 company shareholders* and classifies them in 11 categories.  

  • The CAC 40® is France’s benchmark stock market index, which reflects the performance of the 40 most actively traded stocks on Euronext Paris. It is one of the main national indices of the Euronext Group.
  • The SBF 120® is based on the 120 most actively traded stocks listed on Euronext Paris.

* Non extrapolated raw data that identified 68% of the CAC 40 and SBF 120 shareholding. 32% of the CAC 40 and SBF 120 shareholding is therefore not known in this study
