CEO Euronext Paris & Global Head of Listing

Euronext supports you all along your financing journey. We help you evaluate the financing alternatives available to your company and advise you on all aspects of going public regardless of where you may be in your evaluation process.

 
Entrepreneurs looking to raise capital have a wide choice of financing options, including private equity, venture capital, trade sale or a listing on the stock market.
Listing your company is so much more than securing a new source of financing. It is a strategic decision that enables your company to accelerate its growth, raise visibility, enable investors to exit and boost your profile with all stakeholders.

Benefits of going public

  • Raise funds to finance your growth
  • Create a liquid market for your shareholders
  • Boost your company’s visibility at home and abroad
  • Raise your profile and status with all stakeholders
  • Promote employee buy-in and commitment
  • Facilitate recruitment
  • Allow legacy investors to exit
  • Transparent and unique price
  • Access to a large family of indices
