Press Releases 1/8/2020 1

The 23rd ODDO BHF Forum will be held in Lyon on 9 and 10 January 2020

Paris, 8 January 2020  

This year, the Forum will welcome 270 listed companies of all sizes (small, mid and large caps) at the Lyon Convention Center. The companies present will have the possibility of meeting 600 investors. The Forum is becoming an increasingly international event, hosting 116 non-French companies from 14 different countries, including 69 groups from Germany.

Over the course of the two days, more than 6,400 meetings will be organised in the form of one-to-one, group or plenary sessions at which CEOs and CFOs will address an audience of investors. These meetings will provide the companies attending with an opportunity to convince investors of their potential.

In parallel, three themed workshops will be organised.

  • The first, entitled “entrepreneur workshop”, will bring together experts, analysts and business leaders to discuss the full range of questions pertaining to growth, transformation, governance and the legal and tax arrangements for divestments and inheritance. 
  • The second workshop will focus on ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) investment criteria. Some 67 companies with notable commitments in this field will be present. 
  • The third will be dedicated to convertible bonds, which is an attractive financing tool for companies in the current climate.

At the opening dinner organised in conjunction with the councils for the city of Lyon and the Greater Lyon area, Gérard Collomb, the Mayor of Lyon, and Philippe Oddo will address an audience of French and German companies and international investors. 

The ODDO BHF Forum is one of the largest events of its kind held in Europe for mid and large cap companies. It is organised by the ODDO BHF midcap equity research, sales and corporate access teams which are based in Lyon. In 2019, Extel ranked ODDO BHF the number one broker with the leading equity research department on French stocks for the fourth consecutive year.

ODDO BHF would like to thank its partners for their support: AU Group, Bpifrance, Euronext, Euronext Corporate Services, LYON PÔLE BOURSE and Mazars.



Oddo BHF is an independent Franco-German financial services group, with a history stretching back over 170 years. It was created from the alliance of a French family-owned business built up by five generations of stock brokers and a German bank specialising in Mittelstand companies. The group has 2,300 employees, including 1,300 in Germany and 1,000 in France and Tunisia, and over € 100 billion in client outstandings. Based on its significant investment in market expertise, ODDO BHF operates in three main businesses: private banking, asset management and corporate and investment banking. The Group has a unique ownership structure as 60% of its capital is held by the Oddo family and 30% by employees. This partnership ethos guarantees the long-term commitment of its teams. In 2018, ODDO BHF generated net banking income of € 591 million and at 31 December 2018, the group had € 866 million in shareholders' equity.
