Place des Investisseurs

Placing citizens at the heart of the economy and financing world transformations

Place des Investisseurs works to promote useful savings and develop the public’s financial skills. It supports individuals who wish to learn about financial markets on all types of assets. Place des Investisseurs is the reference network for individual investors committed to informing them in their choice of investments with regard to financial performance but also issues linked to the environment, social, and societal dimensions as well as good governance rules. Place des Investisseurs organises online and physical conferences and debates and plays an advisory role with local authorities, public authorities and all players in the financing chain.


The PEA-PME is a financial framework that helps diversify sources of funding, specifically for small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). It allows French retail investors to acquire a portfolio of European PEA/PME eligible securities while benefitting from preferential tax conditions.

Companies that are eligible for the PEA-PME scheme benefit from:

  • Increased visibility
  • Access to a wider range of investors 
  • Greater liquidity of their stock

Deferred Settlement Service (SRD)

Investors who want to defer payment or delivery of their transaction to the end of the month can benefit from the Deferred Settlement Service (Service de Règlement Différé or SRD).

Regulatory Bodies

The French Prudential Supervisory Authority (Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel – ACP) is an independent administrative authority operating under the auspices of the French central bank, Banque de France. It was created in January 2010 by the merger of the four previous banking and insurance licensing and supervisory authorities, the Commission bancaire, the ACAM, the CECEI and the CEA.

In addition, the Ministry of Economics and Finance establishes general rules governing the operation of credit institutions and investment firms, including management standards, prudential ratios and the setting of capital requirements.

The French financial community also has one major public independent authority, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF).
