Leading Equity Research

The foundation of the business is the Research product which is leveraged across all four business lines: Equities, Debt & Derivatives, Investment Solutions & Corporate Finance.

The Equities research product comprises single stock research, sector research, innovative thematic research, top ranked Strategy research, the leading ESG research product in Europe, a dedicated small & mid cap product and quant research.

As a research provider, Kepler Cheuvreux’s empirical research seeks to challenge the consensus and to critically question the pronouncements of company managements. Grassroots research is our Unique Selling Proposition: our multi-local franchise is close to the companies under coverage, but also their non-quoted rivals, their customers, their suppliers, and, if relevant, the regulators and politicians. Our conviction is that company meetings produce sharper insights and more actionable ideas than traditional ‘maintenance’ research. Our traditional bottom-up approach is integrated into pan-European sector, thematic and ESG products.

With more than 900 stocks under coverage, Kepler Cheuvreux offers the largest research footprint in Europe. Research coverage stretches across 30 equity sectors and is conducted by a team of over 90 analysts who operate from 10 Research offices in the major European financial centres.

Prior to the merger of Kepler and CA Cheuvreux in February 2013, each firm’s research products were honoured with numerous awards.
