The Strategic Planning Committee for SMEs held its first meeting in Paris on 23 March and its second in Lyon on 18 April. Its objective in the coming months is to advise NYSE Euronext on its SME-ISE strategy and to make recommendations with regard to creating a dedicated market for these companies. To meet its goals, the new committee brings together individuals known for their expertise and experience as French, Belgian, Dutch and Portuguese intermediaries, investors and issuers.
During these first meetings, the eleven members of the Committee discussed topics such as “Issuer services,” “Services for intermediaries and investors” and “Promoting stock-market listings and financing: marketing the market.”
The third meeting, to take place on 22 May in Brussels, will be dedicated to “Which market for SMEs?” Members will examine the economic, legal and financial structures as well as resources.
