Recently, as part of our daily efforts to provide local insight and support to all of our constituents in every market, we put together a report on the level of North American investment in CAC 40 companies.

The CAC 40 is the most widely-used French stock index. Ipreo analyzed the aggregated trend of North American institutional ownership in CAC 40 companies over the period Q4 2011 to Q4 2015 using publicly available data, focusing on:

  • Investment analysis by region and investment styles of investors
  • Top holders, buyers and sellers
  • Largest hedge fund ownership

As you might suspect, the initial study was distributed in French, but we’ve provided an English translation as well. The links to both versions are below.
