Equity Europe (ESN)

As a multi-local partnership between leading investment banks and independent financial intermediaries, our ESN, European Securities Network, is able to add “local flavour” to the service offered by research team analysts and sales force.

A multi-local service offered by professionals with strong “domestic expertise“, which is the ability to know your local market inside out. Analysts and sales staff reside in their home countries and can benefit from direct knowledge of both listed companies in their home markets and the economic, political and social dynamics of their countries.

Despite the independence and autonomy of each of the ESN partners, there is a significant central coordination and each member respects common rules.

The top management of each partner company is personally involved in supporting the strategy and development of ESN and strengthening its visibility and credibility.

How we work

We operate through a unique multi-local team of analysts, sales, and sales-traders who are constantly updated on news and financial markets, and in contact with listed companies, to provide institutional and professional customers with immediate support for their investment or divestment decisions.

The ESN business model is one of a kind, bringing together:

Independent research
Sales service
Institutional Investors
Ability to execute in major European markets

Continually making strides since the mid-1990s

Here are the milestones in the history we helped write:

Mid 1990s

The idea of the partnership was born, initially as a Gentlemen’s Agreement.

 

1999

The Gentlemen’s Agreement became a Contractual Agreement.

 

2002

The contractual agreement was transformed into a common company, a Limited Liability Partnership or LLP, under the name of European Securities Network LLP or ESN LLP.
