KEPLER EXTEND RELATIONSHIP WITH PIPER JAFFRAY – An agreement reached in February this year sees Kepler Cheuvreux expand their research partnership with Piper Jaffray in the distribution of US Equity research throughout the US and Europe. The expansion of the partnership will see Kepler begin to distribute Piper Jaffray’s research throughout Switzerland. The initial deal between the two parties saw Kepler’s clients in France, Benelux, Germany, Italy, Spain and Finland gain access to Piper Jaffray’s US Equity Research. Jim Fehrenbach, Chief Operating Officer of Global Equities said “Kepler has shown great success in selling our US product in Europe over the past 15 months and our decision to extend our partnership to the Swiss market will further strengthen our distribution in the region and enhance our ability to serve a broader set of clients.” #SpartanInternational
