Vision

OUR BUSINESS MODEL AND OUR STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT

Independent French-German player

ODDO BHF is an independent French-German financial group, created from a French family company and a German bank specialised in the Mittelstand.

The Group has launched its dynamic development strategy on the French-German axis with three acquisitions completed within the space of 18 months, starting in 2014.

Why this choice ?

  • It can be explained by the affirmation of France and Germany as as key players in the euro zone, accounting for 60% of market capitalisation and 50% of companies in the euro zone.
  • The two countries concentrate 150 million inhabitants, 40% of the European GDP and, between the two of them, have 417 listed family companies capitalising more than 100 million euros.

French-German governance

  • Convinced that understanding between the French and German teams enriches the corporate culture and the services offered to clients, , the Group has implemented French-German management in all the business lines of the Group, as well as in support functions and supervisory bodies.
  • Within the teams, French-German cooperation ambassadors, called "Bridge Heads," were coached to better understand the French-German ways of working.
