First Annual Stock Market Conference in Paris

The First Annual Stock Market Conference will be hosted by NYSE Euronext at the Cambon Capucines Pavilion in Paris next November 9. This exceptional event will allow the stock market ecosystem to come together and take action in a difficult environment to help listed and non listed companies continue to grow and diversify their financing sources.

The conference offers a unique opportunity to meet the entire financial community dedicated to the capital markets, issuers and investment capital players, and is an excellent setting for discussing current affairs and future changes to our markets, as well as conducting an initial review of 2011.

Participants are of a very high caliber, and the proceedings will include the exceptional participation of Economy, Finance and Industry Minister François Baroin.

The morning session, organized in cooperation with AFIC (Association of French Capital Investors) comprises two round table discussions directed towards investment capital players.

  • Risk capital and development capital: why choose the stock market?
  • Capital transmission / Companies under LBOs: ensuring a successful introduction on the market

The afternoon includes three round table discussions and will deal with key topics and current market affairs.

  • The stock exchange and the financial ecosystem: how can they support the economy?
  • Financial markets in Europe: dealing with the new lay of the land
  • At the heart of the exchange: how to manage your market listing (liquidity, indices, derivatives)
