Baader Bank and AlphaValue announce strategic cooperation

Unterschleißheim, Germany/Paris, France, 21 September 2018: Baader Helvea will be the exclusive distribution partner for the pan-European research product of AlphaValue, the leading provider of independent equity research based in Paris, France.

As part of the cooperation, Baader Helvea is expanding its in-house research that focusses on the analysis of companies in the GSA-Region (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) to European stocks covered by AlphaValue. The joint platform analyses approximately 600 equities, creating in the process one of the most comprehensive research offers within Europe for Baader Helvea’s global institutional client network.

Baader Bank will continue to develop the GSA product under the “Baader Helvea” brand and will also provide institutional investors with access to a broadly diversified European offer under the “Baader Europe – powered by AlphaValue” brand.

The joint offer includes securities from 21 countries with a market capitalisation of approximately EUR 10 trillion.

“The joint platform meets the requirements of a broad research cover. The proprietary GSA product remains the essential core of our in-depth approach, while “Baader Europe – powered by AlphaValue” represents a logical continuation and expansion of our own activities, both in terms of focus country and the sectors covered,” explains Christian Bacherl, a member of Baader Bank’s Board of Directors.

With the expansion of the research offer in the form of this cooperation, Baader Bank and AlphaValue are responding to the structural challenges resulting from the MiFID II Directive, which affect both institutional investors and research providers.

“The cooperation extends the range of individual research services and allows us to react to the differing needs of our institutional clients of the globally-oriented network of Baader Helvea individually,” comments Oliver Riedel, a member of Baader Bank’s Board of Directors.

In the process, AlphaValue benefits from international access to clients of the Baader Bank Group. “With the agreement announced today, AlphaValue is strenghtening its position as independent provider of European equity research. The Baader Helvea sales force is giving AlphaValue significantly broader access both to European as well as international institutional investors,” explains Pierre-Yves Gauthier, Founder and Head of Research at AlphaValue.
